The first step was to decide which type of greenhouse to choose. For me a sun-room type attached to my garage seemed to fit well with my needs. It would also be sheltered from northerly winds.
My carpenter friend replaced the rotten wall and built a good base for the greenhouse. A greenhouse kit was ordered on the internet and the greenhouse was assembled and put in place by my friend. .
It was amazingly warm in the greenhouse when the sun came out even when it was freezing cold outside in the middle of winter.
A lovely place to sit and read.
Now a glimpse of the greenhouse in the middle of summer.
Fresh, ripe and DELICIOUS tomatoes growing in the greenhouse could be harvested from the beginning of July until mid November. I now get very disappointed when I buy tomatoes, as they taste nothing compared to the home grown ones.
