After deliberating for many weeks as to where the Greenhouse was to be located on my Plot, we popped along and bought one, so a decision had to be finalised. Last week, I was clearing the Raised Bed in-front of the Shed, as after consulting other Plot Holders, the first location at the very front of the Plot might be too open for a Greenhouse and therefore, locating it by my Shed, should provide it with some shelter.
A beautiful crisp Good Friday, reminded me taking delivery and building my Shed, two years ago. Seems that this is a good day for being busy down on the Plot.
The Raised Bed was moved to the front of the Plot and the base put in place before it was turned, so that the corner spikes enter the ground and secure the structure into the ground. Happy to have used the RHS Hampton Court mulch on this bed, as the soil is in great condition for my new Greenhouse.
Once the base has been banged into the ground, the end, walls and front are built before they are bolted onto the base. We still had sunny skies whilst this was pulled together.
Once it was up, it was a case of popping over to the Church (for Good Friday Mass) and when I returned, it was time to glaze the structure with helpful friends.
Whilst it did take time to build and then to glaze, it was relatively straight-forward to build my first Greenhouse. Indeed, really pleased with the size (which reflects nicely the Shed: also the same size) and will have enough planting space for several Tomato plants and possibly Melons?
The blue skies were replaced with grey dark ones, as Storm Katie was arriving in less than 24 hours… I wonder what will happen to my brand new Greenhouse (!)…
