thermalising my greenhouse


By bren


We (hubby and I) decided to build a fleece greenhouse inside our glass one.
We bought the bubblewrap from Staples the office suppliers.
and wrapped all the greenhouse including roof on one side
Garry then made a wooden frame,just cheap wood
To which we tacked the fleece. we only used drawing pins
Then we got two old broomhandles, attached some more fleece to this, so we can roll it down at night and up in the morning.We hope it saves my tender plants.We think it cost less than £25

I do the same in mine section off one end so that I can keep my tropicals warm and the rest just frost free.

You've done a good job there. Your plants should be snug all winter now.
