"Thinks"????
I have just done my own greenhouse this week that very way. Used lateral restraint straps screwed into both block and sole plate. Well anchored. I didn't bother putting mortar on the blocks, just laid them dry on a bed of sand. Grand job.

Check that out Wardy, it is from a Canadian lad who periodically posts here of the projects he has done in is garden, I don't know why he feels the need to share it this side of the Atlantic as some of the things he does are built/designed to suit his climate and are not relevant here at all.

This is what I did. The 4*2" was just for levelling purposes. The restraint strap has 3 screws in it, 2 in the sleeper and 1 that you cannot see in the concrete block. Lifting eyes still to be attached.

I forgot to answer the above, DPC is damp proof course.
