    Default New greenhouse

    My new Rhino will be charging up the motorway in early October, gone for the 8 x 12 premium which I'm having fitted directly to the levelled soil. I was contemplating growing everything in bags/containers, but was advised by one of our fellow gardeners to use the ground as well. I can spend the autumn/winter getting everything ready for next season, with an early start. Plan to have a grape along the ridge with the roots planted outside of the g/house, so that could be my first purchase.

    Congrats on your new GH you could sow some winter lettuce like 'arctic king' or 'all year round' I've sown both in modules to plant in the GH border once my toms have finished. Its nice to have a bit of lettuce to eat over the winter months.

    Some installers only fit onto a hard base/foundation do you have to have something solid for the framework,like a concrete trench or slabs,I don't know? If it's directly on the soil,it could move/warp?

    Try this, I intend to use their advice and buy a vine from them in January as it's not available yet.

    The Rhino comes with a base and it will be anchored with concrete, I've spoken to the fitter and this is a standard method of installation.
