  11. Yes, I am proud of the achievement after all this time and effort.But I am really looking forward to getting my plants into it most of all.
  12. I wouldn't bother for this year. Sarracenia don't mind being root bound anyway. But if you do repot just transplant the lot into a bigger pot and pack more compost round it trying not to disturb the roots too much.
  13. Finally finished the greenhouse ... Now for the plants!

  17. Finally have most of the glazing completed. I found the top roof panes the most scary to do, especially having to do it all by myself. So, I came up with this method which may be useful for anyone else in the same situation. Firstly, I bought a cheap suction device for gripping glass, mirrors etc. I then attached it to a rope which was positioned over the greenhouse ridge. Setting the suction device on the glass I then placed it at the gutter level. I could then pull the pane up to near the ridge and tie off the rope. It is then easier to position the glass pane in the ridge line by manoeuvring it using the handle. I found this very difficult before having to juggle the glass while at the top of a ladder. Here are some photos of the almost complete current state. I only have a few pieces left to do which were either missing or damaged. These arrived today so should finish the glazing tomorrow. Then have to screw the base down (holes already drilled) and fit the automatic openers and louvre glass. Then staging to install, phew!

  24. A bit more progress. Going a little slow because I'm constructing it on my own given the current situation. Some roof glazing completed ... ... and some side panels with a louvre ... More to follow when I recover from a tweaked elbow suffered whilst juggling a glass pane.
