new mini greenhouse

new mini greenhouse

new mini greenhouse for tomatoes behind the raised herb bed. Doubtful however that it will stand up to the strong winds that we get, its a bit too flimsy... and poor OH spent most of his Sunday and more putting it in place. It will probably come down a lot faster than it went up!

How are you getting on with the mini greenhouse ?

Thanks for asking tt, it is a bit of a saga.almost collapsedin the wind in first fortnight. Lots of duck tape later and it is still standing. OH has tomato plants and a heater in it. Has resulted in a full electrical diy installation to garden. Nice to have an outdoor switch for my water feature but wish it was low voltage power.....

These mini greenhouses are vulnerable to high winds, even if weighed down at the base. Glad yours is still in one piece !

Yes, useful to have a safe source of electricity outdoors.
Could you change it to low voltage ?
