I’ve just been browsing the web for a greenhouse instruction manual that might help me reassemble the greenhouse I won on Ebay earlier this week and found this site:

It’s got a list of lots of different sizes and and makes of greenhouse, plus some tips on preparing a base for your greenhouse. Might be handy for someone out there.


It may not look like it, but I’ve made excellent progress this weekend.
– 6ft x 6ft raised bed built from scratch
– strawberries planted out in one of my mini beds
– sweet peas and sugar snaps planted out – complete with wigwams
– raspberry supports errected
– 3 gooseberries planted out (thanks Jon)
– shed tarted up with various places to hang things

I think I’ve got a problem…can you be addicted to allotment gardening? 🙂

More about Ragged Radishes…

Ragged Radishes is the garden allotment blog of Lucy Crosbie (that's me). As a novice allotment owner, I took on plot no. 27 at the Burras Lane site in Otley, West Yorkshire in Oct 2006. I've now moved to a lovely house with a large garden in Knaresborough.

Have a read, or just a nosey around and please feel free to comment on my posts and photos...
