A greenhouse is the beating heart of an allotment garden, pumping out a stream of life to our plots. Yet living in urban areas, with homes that usually offer little in space for a garden, the ability to erect a large glasshouse is often difficult.
In 2007, Carol Klein presented a 6 part series on the BBC – Grow your own veg.
The series came along at the right time for me. I’d started dabbling with growing some edibles such as tomatoes and chillies in a plastic greenhouse and when this programme all about growing your own vegetables aired on the TV, I was hooked.
