    Default Growing frames for small spaces

    Some interesting ideas here. I like the offset frames in the stand - but don't think my DIY skills are up to it. I'd probably do wooden troughs, rather than slots for individual pots.

    The one that looks a bit like a trestle table is quite similar to the 'Ladder Allotment' idea. We've got one of those coming from the Morrisons voucher scheme for school, hopefully they'll be copy-able

    That would make a cracking light box VC.

    True but it weighs a ton and I have nowhere indoors that I want to put it But it could become a "cold frame" thingy. It has doors at the back. I've been looking at it for ages and thinking that the doors should come off - then realised I could just turn it around
    All suggestions for it welcome

    Hows about a perfect little potting bench.

    Could be With storage for compost and pots in the base. - and a removable tray for the potting soil on top......... Then I could make more room in the GH for growing...
