'Sunglasses' grow house

'Sunglasses' grow house

The 'sunglasses' grow house is now finished. I recycled a conservatory roof that a builder friend had taken down. I think the panels are a bit too dark but I will give it a try before I buy some clear panels for the front.

You will not need shading if it gets too sunny. Great idea

How did you get on with this ?

It worked. I put 5 tomato plants in last spring and we got a reasonable crop toward the end of summer. This year I have managed to change a few of the panels to clear ones (recycled from a friends old porch roof) and have got 4 squash plants in there.
