This project has taken a lot longer than hoped but at long last the new greenhouse is up and running. Here is how the project went!

The old Eden 10 x 8 greenhouse that came with the house.

The jungle inside. The garden was full of big teasels and brambles.

Finally up and running. This is Mike's 20' x 8.6' minor/alata/rubra Robinsons greenhouse.

Next step is to assemble the staging.

Why can I only see the top bit of the pictures?  All the rest is just a series of coloured or black and white horizontal zig zags!

Hi Alexis

Great set of photos.  Looks like it was a lot of hard work, though!  Bet you can't wait to get some staging in and start filling it with plants.

Looking really good Alexis.  I love those high-eave greenhouses.  Wish I had thought about that at the time.

Definitely a plus point when you're 6' 2"! 

It'll be novel not to have Brook's Hybrid etc getting squashed against the glass.

I also need to repot everything as they've been basically growing wild outside for 12 months. If only it was light in the evenings!

Rubras and a few more hybrids.

95% of them need repotting and dividing over the winter after which the order will be a bit less haphazard next year!

Well, that was filled very quickly :shock:.  Some really nice looking plants there.  If 95% of them need repotting and dividing, you'll need a sizeable extension already!

Kind regards,  Rob
