Good luck to you on your green house. Would love to have the room for such. Will look forward to seeing the progression.

That's a bit of good news to brighten up this horrible day - you'll love having a greenhouse. You will fill it up and wonder how you ever managed without it! Have you got an automatic vent opener for the roof window? I find that essential.

Great progress Jacque.I wish we had the room for a greenhouse. Hope the project goes well.Can you post up some more photos when its finished?

Yes, Jacque, get one! The other useful thing is a louvre window at the back of the greenhouse, opposite the door, so you can open it up and leave the door open to get air through on hot days. It really doesn't cost much and it's well worth having.

Thanks Jacque. It looks lovely. You're so lucky to have the space for a greenhouse!

Haha Grenville, I have a great idea - just move all those old pots and plants out and then you too could have a greenhouse!!!!! Good idea or what?

Do you think it would fit on our top deck Spritz?
It could double up as a summer house!

It is coming together well, Jacque .... what do you think will be the first occupants ? I bet you are itching to populate it. Although mine isn't fully glazed yet (everything has been on hold since the beginning of this month, I have spent most of it away from home due to my Father being ill) I have very tardy tomato plants and some biennial seedlings growing there. Despite spasmodic watering they are surviving :-)
