A Greenhouse project from Matt, Lucy and Elizabeth - Photo Gallery

A Greenhouse project from Maria and friends - Photo Gallery - here's a narrative to go with the pictures to whet your appitite

  • Here’s a project my husband and I did this year I was looking for a greenhouse for my friends allotment area up the field Steve an LE&DHS member had put on the site as a give away So I visited to check it out (perfect ) Firstly dismantling it

  • After dismantling the greenhouse and transporting it to the field the next job was trying to get hold of some slabs for the base Well another member of the LE&DHS Gordon was happy to help me out So after picking those up from his house I set my husband a task of laying them

  • Mixing the mortar by hand was hard work and my job

  • But levelling was another story. 2 slabs had to be put on top of each other To help out as we had run out of sand and cement 

  • Check out the reerected greenhouse, complete with plants

  • I would like to say thank you to Steve for the heads up with the greenhouse And yourself for putting it on the web page And for Gordon donating the slabs for my base work for the greenhouse
