A neighbor of mine for the last decade has had a beautiful glass Janco Camellia greenhouse in his backyard that sat in the shade, used as storage. I lusted after it. I asked him every time I would see him if he’d sell it to me. He’d say “maybe one day.” Yesterday was that day!
It was originally 10’ x 16’, but he set it up as 10’ x 12’6." Has an automatic ridge venting system and a nice door and a big commercial roof mounted electric heater. Vents and fans are both connected to thermostats, which will be nice. $500 for the greenhouse, $1,000 for a nice gravel pad with pressure treated lumber for the greenhouse to sit on.
I took out the glass from the sides, front and back and made a bamboo and duct tape stabilizing system to minimize flex. Then I gathered friends and family and the neighborhood kids and we just picked it up and walked it down the street to my house. Piece of cake! I’m off to the races.
Already bought a fig, shopping for a lime tree. Just had to share, I’m so excited!
