How to make a greenhouse for free

Image:www.instructables.com

A greenhouse is a useful thing. It helps you harden off your tomatoes and other veg with ease; it allows you to grow things that you might otherwise not be able to in the UK climate; and it acts as a brilliant slug defence. However, greenhouses can also be expensive.

Luckily, discovering ManMadeDIY on Twitter led me to this fab guide to making your own greenhouse out of discarded items – I particularly love the one pictured above, which is made out of empty water bottles. There are lots of other great home-made craft and design ideas on ManMadeDIY too, including some that would ake gorgeous gifts, so it’s well worth checking out (be warned, you may well lose an entire afternoon.)
