Greenhouse Garden

Always wanted one and this was on special at Bunnings. Made in China and no chance to see the completed item, but the price seemed okay. Hmmm, took the chance and bought it and it’s been well worth it. Not essential but nice to have.

This is used primarily for propagation with the successful seedlings being transplanted out into the main gardens.

graibeard's Greenhouse garden is an indoor organic garden located in Carnegie, Melbourne, Australia and currently contains 18 plants.

This is a Greenhouse garden that is known to be in USDA Hardiness Zone 10. It has mainly Combination soil and receives Partial Sun light.

I LOVE your greenhouse. Want one just like it, but have never seen one in a hardware store around here. Have seen some online, burt they seem to be either horrendously expensive or flimsy as buggery.

If it hadn’t been at a knock down price I wouldn’t have got it – it was still expensive at the $490 price tag but we were on holidays at the time and staying at home (gardening – best way to spend a holiday :) – so we justified it as the trip away we weren’t having. I haven’t seen them again there. Gardenworld was where I next saw them and found out what the usual asking price was – needless to say I should have got them both and it would have still been cheaper than a new one , the W-606 model as near as I can make it.
It’s been terrific to have. Less excuses now for not seed starting and general propagation. We don’t have to juggle space or move seedlings to or from window sills etc. There’s minimal bending, everything is at a good height and because it’s purpose built, it’s pretty much always available – ie:- hasn’t been borrowed, moved or utilized for other purposes.
Having used it for a while now I’d do it again, and pay more for the privilege too (He’s m,m,mad I tell you)

Your seedling collection looks exciting. Our gardens have some strong similarities, don’t they? When I am home more I plan to grow even more varieties and preserve more. I will watch how you get on with your plants and learn.
I love your cucumber collection.

I must clean this up again, I’m a bit tardy in archiving and moving them. It’s really not the TARDIS even though I’d like it to be.

Ah, home more, what a wonderful phrase!

Yes. I’ve got holidays in 2 weeks but I really think I need to be home right through the spring, summer and autumn to be a full time gardener. Long term plan. Like the Tardis pun.

Nice … a way to hang out in the garden when it rains, or in my case, snows. You’ll finb it one of the best investments you’ve ever made. Congrats…

This is definitely where I want to head but I am worried about the investment at this point. I too love Bunnings. I bought a cheap metal frame and plastic zipped cover as my greenhouse ($30). Overtime, the plastic has worn out due to rains and sunshine. Never the less, I now have seed trays with hard clear plastic covers which does the job well. The metal frame still gives me the shelves and height to make it work well as a “glass house”. Seedlings do well but when I transplant them into the garden they are too sweet and get eaten overnight. I hope to get more little metal frames and plastic seed trays as its a lot cheaper than buying seedlings and more exciting watching the seeds grow into a bountiful crop. Thank you for your inspiration.

@ClarendonFlower. :-) Way more exciting, and satisfying, watching seeds turn into bigger things. Shame about losing them of course, but even that will turn around.
