Definitely. I read elsewhere you consider yourself a hobby grower? Looks like a full blown nursery to me. Best of luck to you.

Very nice greenhouse. I'm envious!

How do you plan on finishing off the ends, or are you leaving it open?

Nice, are the arches galvanized or plastic? Also did you buy the arches pre-bent, or are you bending them yourself?

I want to build a greenhouse this summer and have been looking at the tube benders that allow you to use top rail fence poles for the arches. I also visited a nursery recently where they were using 3" PVC as the arches. But i cant image it lasting too long.

These are galvanized pipe, we use spring latch to attach shade and plastic, these houses i bought off a local produce  shed,  they had been used for growing tomato transplants but sat idle when that program was discontinued. I bought the whole stack of bows for one lump sum and  managed to build 3 shade houses 28x100 and this 28x60

progress has been slow, my day job is killing me , but it pays for my addictions and sends me to so many exciting locations. shade cloth showed up, but then one of my guys dumped a CTL into the river ...
