The original greenhouse was near the house and close to the Bramley Apple tree. But glass houses should not be built beneath apple trees (certainly not ones with apple as large as we get from the Bramley)! We soon moved it to the area near the composts and installed electricity for the propagation bench. As well as the usual tomatoes, courgettes, peppers etc. we grow a large range of seeds. The grape vine has been a bit of fun, lots of grapes but no Chateau Chestnut Way vintage just yet. In 2004 we bought a new, larger (8x12) greenhouse and took the opportunity to move its position a few more yards up the garden to get less shade from the willow. The mature grap vine had to be dug up, moved about 6 feet and re-planted. The extra elbow room we now have is very much appreciated.
