My dad's pride and joy, his greenhouse.
It's great because we get lots of fresh, veg, from runner beans, to lots of tomatoes to cucumber - and the kids love 'granddads' cucumber. Both Jacob and Summer snack on cucumber most days, but they always ask for 'granddads' cucumber - it tastes sweeter than supermarket cucumbers and they love how granddads cucumber is all bumpy on the outside.
My dad grows quite a few things in his garden and his greenhouse, it's his hobby and takes it very seriously.
Unfortunately, there are a few cracked and broken panes on his greenhouse, only small cracks, nothing major, but I thought it would be nice if he could replace them. So when The Plastic People offered to send me some to review, I jumped at the chance - I knew my dad would be over the moon.
We measured up the panels - the length, the width and the gauge and ordered 6 panels. When they arrived my dad changed them over, which was a fairly simple job to do and the new shatterproof polycarbonate glazing panels fitted perfectly.
The Plastic People supply superstrong Polycarbonate Greenhouse Glazing Panels. Which they say they are virtually unbreakable. Their polycarbonate is 200x stronger than glass yet half its weight. It is both durable, cheaper and effective, and a great alternative to glass.
When ordering on The Plastic People website, you can either choose from the most popular greenhouse panel sizes or you have the option to order to size, to get panels to your exact measurements. It is as easy as that.

Dad always gives us a bag of veg before we leave. The kids love 'granddads' bumpy cucumber.
