      Sally, can you put a photo up of the box label please? Might give us some clues about the sort of glazing it will take.

        Just gone back and got it for £30. Last one, tatty box but intact. Glazing required was 2 pack of No.2 @£35 each and 1 pack of No.4 @ £25, so a total of £95 for glazing.

        I was too tight to pay that, lol. I'll either improvise with polytunnel sheeting or I'll use it with mesh as a fruit cage.

        Btw, it wont take polycarbonate, only horticultural glass.

          St took a picture and it says will only take horticultural glass. Only thought it needed poly carb because that is what the salesman told me. Should've looked closer lol.
          Why would it not be able to take poly carb though?

            Because polycarb is often thicker than horticultural glass, so the gaps won't be wide enough.

                Sally, do you know anyone who has a polycarb greenhouse who would kindly lend you a small pane to try.

                  I have a pack of glazing!

                  Was marked at £90 still though so pointed out they were selling them for £20 on Saturday but they'd not had it out then... It was £20 wasn't it?
                  Lovely bloke Richard helped us - theres about 20 left around the UK. Aylesbury, Bristol, Wallesey, Crewe, - he did a check for us. None close enough for me to go and get another pack so I have a spare frame to take back (unless anyone near me wants to buy it at cost)

                    £25 I think. £20 for the frame. You got an even better bargain, lol.

                        I don't BM, But I have seen polycarbonate on the net in 1mm and 4mm. What thickness would the glass be?

                          I'm sure the horticultural glass for the 4' x 6' was 3mm.

                          There were different sizes in each pack.

                          I may be going back into B&Q later tonight, if I do, I'll double check (unless someone else can confirm first).

                            Thanks GG losing the will to live. Might as well wait for new stock next year I think.
