If you have found any damage to your greenhouse over the last few months and are looking at repairs, it might a time to consider acrylic rather than glass. We’ve used a supplier of acrylic panels a couple of times over the years - in contrast to glass, much easier to handle, and less fragile. A supplier in Bounds Green offers flat acrylic plastic panels at reasonable cost – a rough price for a 730×610 panel is £15 for acrylic. The equivalent for glass is approx £11. The company’s website is at www.colmacplastics.co.uk or phone 020 8361 4807
