A bit of advice for anyone buying a flat pack greenhouse. DONT BE SMUG AND THINK HOW HARD CAN IT BE TO PUT THIS UP!!!!!! Because it is hard and no matter how many times you read about it and say I must remember to do this and not to do that it still happens. Dont use cement that was in the shed, cos it WONT SET. Check the level and that the base is square about 50 million times before the base is even set. Then when you come back to put up the greenhouse check it again and again!!!!!!! AND AGAIN. Remember they give screws different numbers for a reason and no its not a good thing to have a bag of one number left over and not enough of another!!! But at last after 2 and a half days the blasted thing is up with a broken handle off one window and the other window not closing properly but its up. Did I mention the two ugly stickers that I cant reach to remove, that will bug me every time I look out the top window. Whinge over now its work on the soil and sow. Rolling Eyes

Very Happy Very Happy My Greenhouse Very Happy Very Happy With my finished and raised bed. Very Happy I set radish sprouting brocolli spring onions spinach beet and rocket. That was just over a week ago and everything is up. I havent planted the greenhouse yet as I want to grow cucumbers and tomatoes and havent brought the plants on enough yet.
