With HUGE thanks to Isabelle and Owen Hoban’s dad, we have an AMAZING new bottle greenhouse at the allotment! It is still working progress and will be finished off with guttering and water butts for rain water harvesting.
The children have worked hard to cut, wash and thread the bottles on to canes which have been cleverly added to the frame by Mr Hoban; who has donated wood and time to construct the greenhouse for us. We are so very grateful and thankful and can’t wait to get using it!
The greenhouse is a fantastic demonstration of upcycling by turning used plastic bottles into shelter for tender plants. The greenhouse will be a wonderful resource for the allotment and allow us to start our seedlings off early and have a go at growing some more exotic plants!
