I would like to buy a greenhouse 8' by 6' approx. to start plants in winter and spring because there is very little growth here until June. Site is exposed. Not too expensive. Glass or poly? which is best? UV filter? What are the features/problems to be aware of? Where to buy and secondhand options
Just wondered if you could recommend a supplier for a 8x12 or 6x12 greenhouse. Is there a benefit/disadvantage to polycarbonate vs glass? Best siting for a greenhouse? First thing to do when its erected?

I am thinking of investing in a Greenhouse / polytunnel but unsure which I should buy. I realise that the greenhouse will have more ventilation but what would you recommend. I'm considering something about 6 X 3 metres?
I am wondering about protecting my container plants, dahlias, bay trees, petunias, dianthus, etc, from frost over the winter. I have a large covered area that I could put them in but I am not sure if this would entirely protect them. Should I buy one of those plastic/temporary greenhouses and put them in this instead?
I need to find a supplier who sells heavy duty foil for polytunnels and greenhouses to change my own greenhouse before winter. My greenhouse was covered with something like that but due to weather little holes appeared, this is why I need something stronger. I don't want to throw my wee greenhouse away, it has a good and strong frame, and besides a new one is expensive.
Recently I took a few cuttings from my plants in the garden. The cuttings themselves had some roots attached.I potted them up and watered and placed them in a make -shift cold frame.Question: Is this Cold frame idea a good way of trying to grow plants and if so what procedures should I take in order to maintain healthy plants?
My tunnel is about 8 years old and firm and good but I have awful algy on the outside. I have tried washing up liquid and Domestos bleach but the green algae (and black on the top) remains. Jeyes is not to be used on it (so the tin says) . Can you please suggest something to wash the tunnel with? I use a window cleaning sponge on a long handle as my tunnel is tall and I cannot reach the top by hand
