As my names suggests, I am new to this game. I have a new 10 x 8 greenhouse and am just checking what other people have used for greenhouse staging. I have been told by some people to make this myself as it can be very expensive to buy. Has anyone tried making their own staging before? Any advice very much welcomed.

Thanks for your help.

I use staging in my 6x6 greenhouse, it enables me to sow more seed trays and have the ready to plant into raised beds when the danger of frost is over.

I got some cheap and cheerful staging in Argos last year and there was a special offer of two for the price of one. As Homebase and Argos are the same company check out and special offers that homebase have.

Have fun in your garden!!

How about a few Pallets,There for the picking beside Factories-Supermarkets {ask permission 1st}. Drainage already in place,no cost involved,
Worth considering.

was in bnq last weekend and they had staging but it wasnt very sturdy and quite expensive.on the other hand they had pressure treated decking boards for € 2.80 or there abouts and they would be great for staging
