Majcka's 2015

Finaly I have something to share.

After a huge winter disaster I have something to be proud of. That would be my new GH.

In the middle of February I cleaned up leftovers...

As you can see I also placed (with the help pf my husband) some iron net on the ceilling for stapeliads and some other suculents in baskets.


At the end I placed shelvings in and place plants into shelves.

So you managed to rescue some (most?) of your plants, did you?

The floor on your greenhouse looks clean! Are you careful while watering or vacuum your greenhouse three times a day?

The floor in my greenhouse does not look as tidy. I only sweep once a year in spring...

I have a floor paved with heavy 60 by 40 centimeter large tiles I put there myself. They never looked clean.

After one week after I had put my plants back in my greenhouse the floor is covered with dirt, and it gets worse as summer passes.

Hmmm - well. I think my GH won't look as nice at the end of the season. I guess dirt has special kind of atmosphere. :cool:

And concrete is much easier to sweep than tiles, right? Anyway, don't worry about too clean....it won't be next month. :lol:
