Ahem - where's the orchid gone Zigs - have you evicted it?
It's no good waiting for Santa mate - you have to get out there and make one. Greenhouses don't just materialise out of thin air lots of different kinds of artists have greenhouses!!
Don't worry Eileen, it's safe, it stays indoors with the others, I don't really want it mixing with all those awful prickly things.
I was just mulling over the glazing options!
All of my greenhouses over the past 30 odd years have been on a similar design as Ziggy's cactus house. I have found that timber and tunnel polythene is very practical. Even if the polythene splits, it is easy to repair with tape as long as it's on a timber frame. The timber is also practical as you can fix into it far easier than metal. Making staging and shelf space is a doddle, and a second internal skin of bubble wrap (large bubble) makes a good two degrees difference in the winter.
Zigs, that is SO sweet! I used to dream of a Greenhouse where I could grow
herbs and supply restaurants, thereby making a fortune! (Dreamer!)
Now I am satisfied with gardening to feed the two of us and giving the surplus to our neighborhood.
How about stained glass?
Tetters said polythene would be quicker
I think I will use a translucent white. I know the catholics will be sad, but I do not mind being blinded by the white light. As long as it is not directed at me that is?
Stay away from the light Carol Anne
How can a succulent not be in direct light? That is the most odd idea to me. Especially a paddle?
It was a quote from "Poltergeist"
Oh Lord Hep' me! I am forgetting the movies of my childhood!
Been digging out some of Tetter's orchids
I am suprised she grows the small ones!
Why are you doing that Zigs?
