A trip to the glazier sorted out the broken panel and after a lot of pinging of fiddly wire springs and throbbing fingers the greenhouse is fully glazed – & washed inside and out. A kind addition to the ebay purchase was a set of four shelves, which is wonderful as it means there is no need to get staging and will allow more growing space.
And to make me even happier, my very kind friends recently delivered a surprise load of wonderful ‘black gold’ – rotted horse dung from their equestrian mum’s fields. What a gorgeous present! I spread some on the greenhouse growing surface and made 2 narrow pathways with my beech leaf mould – and mulched the quince tree and James Galway rose with some more. Precious stuff.
And the last of the flower sprouts – delicious and beautiful. Must grow lots more this year.
