My new recycled Hexagonal greenhouse!!
« on: April 21, 2009, 21:36:16 »
I am so happy - just managed to pick up a hexagonal greenhouse, I think it maybe a halls 8'4 with foldaway staging!

This is my first greenhouse so will be going through the old posts to pick up some tips.

It doesn't have guttering - does anyone have any suggestions on how to get around the hexagon?

All I have to do now is put it back together!!! :P

Thanks,
Clive

Fingers crossed that it goes together well.... some commercial plastic guttering systems have 60degree corners as well as normal ones...  :-X

thanks for the replies, it will probably take me a week to get it togethers as it needs a good clean, rusted bolts removed/replaced  and remaking some angled metal plates etc. I am so excited though it feels like I am aged five and Santa just arrived!!!  ;D

Its so nice to be around others who appreciates, as I normally get blank glazed stares when I go on about gardening etc :)

i too know how u feel ;D

we have just taken on an allotment and have been given a second hand green house which is all up apart from 2 pieces of glass missing.

 my hubby and i are like 2 children at xmas with it all. can`t wait till summer when seeing all our hard work growing away. i also like to collect rare plant and my house can`t take any more so greenhouse will come in very handy just for them.

I got my 6x8 greenhouse recently from Freecycle and I am so happy! It took ages to clean we had to scrub every pane of glass and we jet washed the frame. We broke four panes of glass the previous owner said the auto vent doesn't work but it does now  ;D!
I do understand your excitement because I was the  same!

Good luck with yours!

Lady at my work says her hexagonal greenhouse does have guttering, it's not a Halls. Maybe give here a ring?
