    Hello everyone, I'm new to Gardeners Corner although I've been gardening for the past 50 years or so. However I'm no longer allowed down the garden so it has to be full time greenhouse gardening. It's all a bit hit and miss in mine so I want to look and learn from the greenhouse section.

    Kind regards to you all

    Rod

      Welcome to the forum! I have a couple of small greenhouses and thoroughly enjoy them and you will too!

        Welcome to Gardeners Corner Rod. I'm sure as a long time gardener you will eventually have a greenhouse full of lovely plants. :)

        What a wonderful welcome from you all, I must apologise for the time taken by me to reply.
        Regretfully the whole garden has gone wild and if there were photos JWK, I honestly would be too embarrassed to let you see them. A pal comes in to cut the grass but everywhere else is now a jungle.

        I can't really say that over the years the greenhouse has been of as much interest to me as veg. fruit, chrysanths and dahlia growing.

        However that has to change as of now and so my future is in my greenhouse and I think that this is the way forward for me, read the forums, ask questions and take on board the answers and advice given. Once again thank you all for your kind words of welcome. Rod

          As people have said greenhouses are never big enough; so if possible find somewhere outside the greenhouse for storage. That way you have more space for plants.
          Must try and follow my own advice!!

            I had a look in the shed today NigelJ and quickly closed the door. I'll pluck up some courage and and have a bit of a clear out at the weekend to make room for some greenhouse bits and bobs!!
