New cold frame

New cold frame

We have always stored plants that are waiting to be planted in a corner of the yard, so we decided to make it a permanent storerage area with some shelter.... Last Saturday and Sunday Graham spent hours constructing a frame and then covered it with some corrugated hard plastic ....I know I am calling it a cold frame, but it much bigger and we can walk in..almost like another greenhouse.....next weekend will see the roof going ....

Well we have decided to go with a copper beech hedge and have ordered 200 of same at 5 ft in height from Annaveigh Plants in Co Tipperary...  Two weeks ago we hired a company to take away the old thorn hedge and clear the ground ...we also had a sheep fence put in,,,so now we are all set for the delivery of our new hedge the first week in November...Sorry about the quality of the photos it was a very foggy morning when they were taken and I have no idea why they did not load on here the correct way up....
