    Default Finally finished

    so a few weekends ago i had my new greenhouse arrive in various boxes
    16x8 Elite Belmont with a few extras
    prepped the base and finally had sign off from the missus saturday that it was finished
    so yesterday spent moving some chilli's in

    The light is a solar charged light i picked up off ebay, 24 led's and very bright
    its not as a grow light but just gives me another couple hours at night till the longer nights come in

    managed to pick some mushroom trays up from a mate who knows a greengrocer as 12 9cm pots fit just right
    the bigger potted are chillis i overwintered in the back bedroom (Bengal Naga, Dorset Naga, Choc Hab, Bhut Jolokia)

    Love it. Looks solid and well made. Love your order going on in there; after my own heart. Interested in that light - did they have more or was it a one off?

    all colour coded to heat levels ATM...have to confess, missus was involved in that little arrangement but it does seem to work

    plenty of lights still listed
    they do a slightly different version with 2 8w fluoresant strips but thought LED's better as no maintenance, i'm gonna get another 1 for the other end

    Great looking greenhouse fella, I think if I bolted both my lottie greenhouses together its still would come up short against yours. Maybe when my 6 year old lad stops blasting a ball around the back garden I'll have a one in the garden too..

    Thanks chap! Am disappointed now I know you're not in touch with your feminine side when it comes to your arrangement. But tell the missus I'm impressed

    I have an Elite greenhouse - but it's quite a baby compared to yours 6 X4'6" I think from memory, I'm very jealous. Enjoy it!
