It is far too easy to underestimate the size of your greenhouse. Work out what you intend growing inside it and plan it out in the area you hope to use, mark out the position of growbags, and pots etc that you will be growing, plus any working areas for staging and benches. If you will be growing lots of different seed varieties then plan out where all the seed trays will go, also allow room for you to access everywhere and to be able to work comfortably. To be safe, go a little bigger than you first thought; it is better to have a bit more room to allow for air circulation than to be cramped up.
I’ve been gardening for as long as I can remember, my first earliest memory being planting
seeds in my Grandfather’s prestige flower bed and having a prize lettuce growing there, which he proudly left to show everyone.
Since then, gaining knowledge and experience from both my Grandfather and my Father, I’ve continued to garden, both as a hobby and later on as a professional gardener and landscaper for 12 years. I love all aspects of it, from the design and build, to the planting out of summer borders with plants you’ve either grown from seed or raised from plugs. Unusual varieties always catch my eye and I’m keen to try growing them, even if sometimes it means learning from my mistakes.
