When we moved to Chapel House in June 2015. OH promised me a proper greenhouse, I made do with a cheap polytunnel ( it has withstood a lot of Fenn winds including the tail end of Doris) but after a lot of research and the budget doubling!!!!! Argggggg. My Rhino 6×6 ft in seagrass with finials ( I had to have finials) I didn’t reveal the actual cost of these to OH!!! It looks great, I went for quality rather than quantity, the greenhouse needed to look good as it’s right in the middle off the veg plot and is visible from almost all of the garden. It has automatic roof vents, which are going to be very useful, OH & I spent about half an hour just watching them! ( Think we need to get out more😀 or little things please little minds) we do live miles from the nearest village/ town so this could rate as entertainment 😂.
It is now full of plants, which are getting bigger already, with all that fab light. I’m being very disciplined (well trying) about the amount of time I’m spending in there! Just need a small radio and I will be well away.
Area cleared, levelled and flattened with a roller.
Greenhouse being built by Paul & Alan, the boss (Paul) came to help build, he did his lionshare too.
Finials & automatic roof vents
Filling up quickly 😁
Now complete with two water butts, the guttering came as a standard fixture.
View down the garden, it looks so much nicer than the polytunnel.
So as the greenhouse has a 25yr guarantee, it is going to get a lot of use, I like to get my monies worth! I will be in my eighties when it needs replacing, I will probably just need the polytunnel.
To say I’m happy and pleased is a bit of a understatement 😁😁😍
So due to the cost of this and the fact that it’s also our 40th wedding anniversary in August,we are having a family/ close friends barbeque. I won’t be joining you at the GW get together 😔 but I shall be thinking of you all, whilst in my greenhouse. 💐🌸💖
