Bought this yesterday.


Hi, Sue and i went out yesterday to Fermoys garden centre at Ipplepen, Newton Abbot. After a potter round we came upon this Garden frame for just £10, at that price i thought it a good buy as they were originally £20 then reduced to £15, for one day only they were a tenner !!!.

This is it put up, i am going to repaint the wall White to get more light into it.

This should allow us more room for cutting as they develope, also a half way house for plants between the house and the outdoors.

I had one peg it down if your putting it where the wind can catch it as it will blow over or pull the poles apart and plants will go plop on the floor.

What a good bargain - they are a lot more expensive in our area.

Hi, Thanks all.
Sixpence i have it attached to a cothes line Scaffold pole (hidden) behind the frame, also it will be sunk into a wooden floor platform. I have also bent over the edges of the slatted wire shelves so that they are permanently in there position.

Looking forward to seeing all the fuchsia cuttings you grow in it!

I have 2 of them. They are very handy but the only thing is that the cover doesn't last very long - it always tears after a while, but you can get replacements :)
And as 6d sais make sure it doesn't get blown over. I have heavy concrete blocks in the bottom of mine.

I'm so glad I have one of these as no room for a glasshouse ... Dahlias/Aquilegias/Cyclamen/Sunflowers are all growing on in there. You won't regret buying this. : o ))

I had one of these. Yes very useful BUT and this is a big BUT. Tie it to something so it doesn't blow away with all your precious seedling babies in it. Also the cover can tear in the wind too. But you can get replacements.
