I found that clicking on the picture enlarged it , looks great mentalmick . now I have a new idea for my heated propagater covering = rigid polycarbonate , and the condensation won`t drip either . I could join the edges with clear polytunnel repair tape . just trying to design something where one could get access to the inside with out actually taking off the large cover , a flap at the front perhaps .......... velcro comes to mind . Any other ideas out there ?
My heated table is working a treat and everything is growing nicely . At the moment I'm using individual tray covers, a right pain to remove every morning and replace at night plus a few things are too tall.
So it`s time to make that large cover . Here is what I have to work with at the moment narrow plastic piping , 4 joints and some saddle clips .
The cover has to be removable as I need to put other table tops on top of it later for the tomatoes. A simple arched thingy with a plastic cover like a mini poly tunnel would probable do , BUT, I was thinking of a more squared structure with heavy plastic ( I have a few yards of thick clear PVC meant for a kitchen table ) and I have kept two long zips from an old mini greenhouse covering . Just wondering if anyone had any ideas about this ? what could I use for joints at the corners ? The piping is about 15mm wide, anyone know if there are plastic corner joints available that size I havn`t found any on the Internet .
Thanks grindle they are a bit expensive for my thrifty ways. My pipe is actually only 10mm wide I think it will be much easier to stick with an arched idea . I did see some cheap bean cane connectors "apollo canemates" on the home base site 99p each they look great but may be a little big for my project but would be great for making a cheap fruit cage .
when I had a little veg patch I used the plastic practice golf balls from the pound shop to stick the canes in, they worked perfectly and were very cheap
Oh , that would be a great idea grindle, improvisation, I`ll have a look for those when I`m out . I have a few gas balls from the inside of guinness beer tins ( I knew they would be useful someday ) I might try and drill a few holes in one to see how it fares.
