The sleepers have arrived!

After many weeks of research, discussion and negotiation we finally have our recycled, untreated hardwood railway sleepers to create the raised beds for drainage and landscaping in the greenhouse.  Although the space seems small we needed 120 sleepers to do the job.  In the end our supplier was Kilgraney ltd.  who provided Karri sleepers at a price we could afford and even found a lorry with a crane to unload and that was narrow enough to fit through the entrance gates to the greenhouse.  We now have the materials to start the practical layout of the greenhouse.  They have featured our project on their web site now.
