Hi everybody, its been a while since ive popped in but hope to spend more time here from now on. Im not sure if this is the right place for my query? I want to buy a greenhouse, about 10x8 approx. Can anyone give me a guide to suppliers and costs? Also can i place it directly on the lawn or do i need a concrete base.

Hi Ollie, Your local B&Q or Woodies may be selling off end of season ones now to make room for Christmas stock. You would have to erect it yourself.You have to put down standard blocks for the base of the greenhouse.These have to be lined up and even all round using a spirit level.

Ollie
In case it is of any help I googled 'clonsilla garden centre' and came up with the following "Castleknock and District Garden Club: November meeting: Our Lady's Parish centre 26th November 8pm "Colour in the garden in winter" (Denise Gill)" Meeting some local people might be a better shot than trying to follow a load of addresses all over the country. The reason you need a firm and level base for a glasshouse is to avoid glass breakages in windy weather. When the glasshouse sits ona firm and flat foundation it does not tend to rock in the wind and glass does not tend to break. The foundation can even be just six inch blocks placed on the ground but it has to be deadly level

Sorry for the delay in replying. Well, after much research and plodding round the shops Ive got my greenhouse! I looked at polytunnels and they seemed fine,but as my garden is too small they werent suitable,although they have better headroom. I was in Belfast for a weekend and went to B+Q up there for a look. I got an 8x6 for 370 sterling. 90 for the base,90 for the glass(horticultural), and180 for the frame. Its not as big as i would like but its a start! Look up their uk website to see their selection. I dont have it erected yet, but I have lots of seedlings started anyway. Trying to get my husband to dig the foundations. I could put it on my decking but the garden gets more sun.
