    Obviously glass is the best choice if you can get it. Polycarb is more child friendly & still does the job. The only difference that I think of is safety issues..........Glass v Plastic.

    Would be easier if it did BM

    If it's covered with netting then it wouldn't be a greenhouse. It would be a Brassica/Fruit cage.

    Well I'm now the proud owner of two 8' x 6' complete polycarbonate greenhouses. I had to drive for further than was probably sensible to get them but it seemed too good a bargain to let pass.

    There were 6' x 4' complete greenhouses too (in light purple boxes) but they were not reduced, it was only the 6' x 4' horticultural glass greenhouses (in orange boxes - need to buy the glass separately) that were reduced. This was the same in 2 stores I was in today.

    The glass is 3mm thick according to the garden assistant I spoke to in B&Q.

    I'll be using net over mine so have really been looking what's needs to go in it so I'd go with the glass advise above, VC!

    Do the frame instructions tell you how many panes and what sizes are needed? There are a lot of panes available on ebay. And the W- and Z-clips are pretty cheap and easy to get too.

    I'm curious to know whether we're talking about different animals here.
    Polycarbonate I think. B&q brand, not verve. Old stock !

    Our local store (Romford) had several purple glazing packs but no frames, so I didn't bother.

    Fab!
    I'd had a feeling someone has said 40, but inspired by him actually telling us "the stores that have some will probably just throw them away as they're the last ones..." I thought I'd say it'd been 20.

    Anyway that one has found a home.
    Just a frame to go now!
