    Last year I bought a little overflow greenhouse for £25 from Morrisons. It is made with the usual type of construction, hollow metal rods which push into multi way plastic connectors. This spring I decided to move it and was half way through when driven inside by rain. That night there was a gale [sod's law] and a lot of the connectors were broken. To my surprise I can't find anywhere that supplies them. I've found a similar type which push into the tube, but my tubing is too big, and also rubber ball connectors but the holes are too small.
    Does anyone know of a manufacturer, please?

    I have the same problem Liz, Ive lost count how many times mine was blown round the garden!:mad: It's the casing that the rods fit into with mine that are broken. I think I'll just have to tape it up the best I can. If you do find replacement parts Liz I'd appreciate it if you could let me know. Good luck :thumb:

    Oh i feel for you. How annoying is it to just have one piece missing? Someone on here is very good at making things (that doesn't sound right:)) but he will know who i mean, maybe he can offer some help.

    Seems these days one is supposed to throw away rather than do and mend.

    cheers

    i'll have a look in the garage to see if I kept any bits when my plastic greenhouse gave up the ghost, don't hold out much hope though!!!! my only other thought, you could try a camping shop, they sometimes have replacement corner angles for frame tents and awnings???
