Later this year I will be helping son construct a new mist propagation
greenhouse, he is wanting to do it in wood with polycarbinate. I am
pretty sure the area he has ear marked and base built is non standard
size and shape hence his decision .
Many years ago I was able to buy glazing bars etc in stove coated
alluminium to recover my old victorian leantoo but I cant now find
anyone supplying lengths of alluminium glazing bar.
My feeling is if we can get hold of proper greenhouse mouldings it
will have a much longer useful life and require less upkeep than if we
build in wood.
Does any one know of a supplier?
Anything useful here?
or somewhere in this lot https://tinyurl.com/yxr25yqc although not all
Yes I know about that sort of stuff and have used it to make my own
structures here but it is expensive. I may well have to go down that
route. What I was hoping was that someone would still be making the
standard alluminium glazing bars that we could glaze with glass, stove
coated looks good and lasts, that way I can make it to what ever size he
I know at this stage everyone is probably wondering why didn't he just
make the space the right size to fit a standard greenhouse, it would
have been cheaper and easier, probably down to bad parenting!
You should, of course, price in changing the base against the additional
cost of building a non-standard greenhouse.
Knocking down a block base and then erecting to the standard size should
not be prohibitively expensive.
Also consider extending/contracting the base and living with the redundant
blocks which are now on the inside/outside and which might be repurposed
for containing beds or storage.
At the moment you are being inconvenienced because the base is non-
standard. That can be fixed.
