    Sealant/Putty on a Polycarbonate/Aluminium framed Greenhouse?

    Yup, @ricky101, that is it. It is wide enough to have nearly and each going up both side and I cut it a 1/2" too long so that I could squish the two sides together to make a total seal.

    Auto vent problem

    Mine were jammed this year and have been jammed in the past, so I added some lithium grease to all the moveable bits and the piston, that has done the trick. They are about 10 years old now

    I used to sow beetroot in cell trays for planting out in the ground. The idea is that you put two or three seeds in each cell. You don't need to thin multiple seeds because if they have enough room they just push one another away. Then you don't really thin them until some are big enough to eat.
