Keep the greenhouse?
« on: November 07, 2008, 04:55:40 pm »
We 'inherited' a 6'x8' glass greenhouse.  It has a few broken panes, and is growing a junk mountain at present.  Is there any reason to keep it?  I've no real desire to grow veg.  Can anyone come up with a persuasive reason to hold on to it, or perhaps dump it immediately?  Mrs ao, seems to be more attached to it - but I'm the gardener...   ;)

You can grow flowers in it.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Yes.  Do keep the greenhouse, if it's not absolutely falling down.  You'll find something you want to grow in there.  If not veg, then cuttings & seedlings before planting out.  Or overwintering more sensitive plants.
Getting there...

Put the turbo trainer in it then you can pretend you are night riding without the risk of rain, ice, cars, etc  ;D

If you are getting rid of it, put it on freecycle. Someone will be glad to dismantle it, cart it away and make good use of it.

That's how I got mine.  :thumbsup:
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

Thanks.  On the Keep it:Freecycle it  - I'm now about  35:65%

The real problem is that it's holding up my plans for a nice new 10x8 shed... ;)  Unless I come up with some new inspiration as to siting it somewhere else.
