you need to balance heat in, water in, fresh air in+all of those out in order to create perfect and stable grow conditions of humidity and temp.

Yes, I think it might be a bit of a pita. I can’t ...

amazon have a selection of greenhouse thermometers from about ten quid

I’ve actually already got three lights. I was vaguely thinking of getting one more and adding them to one of those mini greenhouse thingummies. I’m just not sure how warm the garage is (not terrib ...

I’d love a greenhouse, but realistically there’s nowhere to put one here. Last year I had a go at a hydroponics set up in the spare room, and it flopped. And I got water everywhere, and we couldn ...

I have one (not that one). I take a small child to loo in the night fairly regularly and don’t want to blind us. Suits us really well. I quite like floor level lighting (but then I am probably up a ...

Because a shipping container is higher than anything else I could put up, I hypothesise it will shelter more of the allotment. (I believe the usual guide is shelter over three times the height, and di ...

It’s the wrong place for bushes. Something easy to weed needs to go there, because of the bindweed.

I’m awfully tempted to put a shipping container there. It’d be a bombproof shed, and block ...

We can’t have concrete, but if I plant a hedge, I won’t be able to weed it and it will get infested with bindweed and mares tail. I’m considering a heras panel, with netting on. Or maybe a haze ...

Our allotment is very windy. The beans have really struggled with it, and it held back many of the young plants early this year. It’s also deeply unpleasant to work in. Even the polytunnel I put up ...

I bet groomers would be delighted to let you have some. There’s practically enough for another dog when they do ours!

I wonder if breed makes a difference? I’m betting wolf fur is on the wiry s ...

I think I neglected to latch the door properly, and the wind got in and under. It had already survived similar winds. I’m not sure whether to buy another, or save my cash and put it towards a perman ...

I have got it back, albeit a different shape. I don’t know how whether to try to bash it back into shape or just buy another. It’s a very exposed site, so I wasn’t expecting a winter out of it, ...
