Hi
I have just joined and Im so excited about learning from everyone. I have also just bought a green house and looking for tips and hints on how to get the best from it. Its not up yet, I will need help with that but I am so looking forward to having my tender vegetables protected from the elements. Laughing

Hi
Thanks for the welcome.
My greenhouse is 6x8. Normally I have some seeds planted by now and tend them in my dining room window until May or June when I plant out. So I'm really looking forward to not having to trip over young plants in the house.

Aaaah, kindred spirit, I'm not sure the term "lady" really applies to me....and I haven't been a "young lady" for an awfully long time now, more's the pity ! But thanks for making me feel a little more youthful.... !
I've just taken down all the Christmas decorations and hope to emerge from hibernation soon. The weeds, unfortunately, seem not to have hibernated at all...... sly little wretches........

congratulations on your purchase. Pick a good site for it, well sheltered but not shaded facing south. Soil needs to be well drained deep and fraible. Fertility can be built up gradually over the years. A glasshouse gives you a months earlier gardening in Spring and a months later in the Autumn.
