My GreenHouse Build.

Post by cactusguy63 » Mon Nov 09, 2020 1:37 am

One of the criteria went my wife and I went house hunting was that I have space for a real greenhouse. I just finished this build 1 week ago.

That looks good and you have some nice plants there.

With the green lawn and hedges you could almost think this picture was taken in England... until you notice the Bismarkia palm. :grin:

Well, maybe it could be England too?
When I was in Ireland I was amazed by all the palm trees in the gardens. But sure, Ireland is not equal to England nor even UK of course.

I grow something like two dozen palm taxa in my garden but Bismarkia isn't one of them! It is not hot enough for long enough and too cold for too long! :)

That's in Indio!!, it looks like it could have been taken in England. I drive past Indio most years and it's one of the signs that I'm heading back to civilisation again. It's going to get very hot in that greenhouse in the summer.
