Thank you. They look even better now, cannot believe how quickly my garden is developing. This photo was taken 22nd July.
I am picking strawberries from around the apple tree! Hubby would be in the greenhouse if taking the photo in the same place now! Will update pics. :-)

LOL.... it has been on my wish list for 18+ many more years!!! I finally had my wish, called my father in law and rushed over to B&Q before close! Well Wednesday is over 60s discount day..... advantage must be taken of the card ;-)

Absolutely.... saved me £22.80.... that will go towards my heater.... *always thinking!!*
I had a mini nursery. This last winter, the plastic cracked / tore and like yours was jam packed with produce..... well the rest is history.... go for it I say, wished I had done it earlier.... it brilliant.

Yes, do Eileen, we got one and put it up a few weeks ago, it's great and like A jh think I'll get a heater for Winter looking forward to shutting myself in there! I had one of those little greenhouses and used it for 2 years then the zip went so I bought a new cover, but there wasn't enough room. I use the shelves now on top of the staging in the Ghouse so they've come in.

good idea janey to keep the shelves from the mini green house, fraid my proper green house will have to wait a wee while, back to school stuff has to be bought first lol
