Greenhouse prepared for winter

Postby TheEconomist » Sun Nov 15, 2015 6:25 pm

We have moved house earlier this year but like it always is, we never had the time to move the greenhouse ! Windowsills were filling up and we eventually hired a van, some help and shifted it.

Then it took a while to re-assemble it and today we have finished preparing it for the winter so I thought I'd share a little video I have put together :smile:

Hi David: Well done for an entertaining video, although I expected "the ladies" to be more sparsely dressed by the end of it - judging on the choice of music. :wink: The bright paint colours wouldn't be my choice, but you've done a good job.

All the best with your new start.

Hi Iain,

I'm sorry to disappoint and I do see where you're coming from as to the dress code :mrgreen:

Thanks :)

David: If DaveW gives us fans of traditional dark green grief, I wonder what his response to your bright colours will be? :lol:

Jo: I'll put this delicately (with no offence in any way meant to anyone), but don't professionals use ice cubes? :roll:

Again: well done to you all.

Colours were a joint decision, I personally prefer more vubrant colours when it comes to most things :)
