I just thought, since it’s such a beautiful day, you might like to see a couple of snaps of the lovely greenhouse you created specially for us.
We have a lot to learn about how to use it to maximum effect but we absolutely love it already. It looks so different now from the last photo I sent when it was covered in snow!
Also I thought you would like to know that it has been much admired! We had a visit a couple of weeks ago from George Anderson, who is better known as the presenter of “The Beechgrove Garden” on BBC 2 Scotland (you’ve probably never heard of it but it has been running for 40 years this year!) I contacted the programme last year to ask for advice on the pruning of our very overgrown shrubs. We have been short-listed for a tiny slot in one of the future programmes, so they sent George Anderson to assess our garden. He arrived in the snow and headed straight for the greenhouse which he thought was remarkable and he was hugely impressed! I told him as much as I could about you and your work, so maybe your ears were burning!
Anyway, enjoy this beautiful weather and thank you again for this very lovely structure!
All the best,
Anne asked me to build the very same greenhouse after visiting a recently completed one I built for Jon. This is the "Jon" - a 3m wide by 4m long with reduced height porch. This one will be built using accoya and a brick path will be laid in a 'T-shape' on the inside.
The ground is nice and level so the first job was to mark out exactly where the greenhouse is going - tight up against the back and centred exactly between the two aluminium planters.
