my top glasshouse crops over winter have been cress, coriander and chervil! and my spinach is doing really well in amongst the chickweed, best I've ever managed to grow.

Any tips on buying a glasshouse. Was looking at polycarbonate due to needing to site it under a large grapefruit tree! 4mm or 6mm? clear or opaque? tunnel house or aluminium? I live in Auckland in an are which gets occasional frosts. Love some opinions thanks

I am looking for an industrial designer in order to build a greenhosue using used cracked windscreens. Please contact me.

Working bee in my house, Sunday 22 May 1030. So we can work together in my garden and share ideas. (Working bee should be called working group)

What is the connection with growing under glass?

That I have the windscreens to make tunnels or perhaps greenhouse.

Pop up, you will not be dissapointed, ask address via friendship.

Hi : We brought our 4m X 10m Flexi Tunnel with us to Kaiwaka. It has a window that opens automatically, temperature controlled, a sliding door, and the sides can be raised during hot weather. Nearly fully set up, hydroponically, electronic timers for the pumps.

I have been marginally successful with pollination with a brush and have read articles saying you can do so. But:- the plant may be flowering but the amount of sunlight it is exposed to( throughout the day) and the night temperatures also determines whether it will fruit or not. I don't believe the autumn conditions in Hamilton are suitable( even in a greenhouse ,

my eggplant, which I put in rather late, is flowering profusely, but I'm wondering about pollination. Can I aid using a pintbrush? Any ideas welcome.

How is every ones greenhouses going. I have lots of seeds coming up. going to try growing in pots this year, that will give soil a rest from tomatoes. Outside Garden in full swing.
Comment by Margaret Beers Oliver on September 4, 2010 at 6:45am
Yep, the night temperatures dropped so that the tomatoes had to be covered up last night. It should be temperatures in the 90f's on Monday. Wild ride this time of year.
