securing a greenhouse
« on: February 01, 2008, 19:13 »
We did a quick 'drive by' my Mum's lottie today to check all was well in these winds only to discover her little greenhouse has blown over!

It was a small new 6x4 that had only been put up in September. It looks beyond repair!! She never even got to use it. :cry:

It's got me thinking though... I was looking at buying this greenhouse.. http://www.gardenbuildingsdirect.co.uk/Aluminium-Metal-Greenhouses/Palram-Greenline-Polycarbonate- as we have 2 little-uns running around.

As it will be lighter than glass and Mum's glass one blew over so how on earth do you secure a greenhouse to the ground?  :?

 :idea: Any ideas welcome!!  :idea:
Snappy 

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.

I was at an advantage because I remembered the thread and just needed a few keywords.

Searching is actually quite tricky so I wrote up some instructions - follow the Help link in my signature to find them.

P.S. Does a hero get bigger pay than a moderator?  :wink:

Who told you about the tights?  The police officer assured me that that incident had been struck from the record.

You can find ANYTHING on the internet, WG. Nice pose, by the way. :wink:

Amazing what photoshop can do, isn't it?  You can't see a single follicle.
