Started asking re permissions and whether I can extend the greenhouse past the building line. Bit more complicated than the pergolas—should have expected that as a greenhouse has a solid roof albeit only a sheet of poly (probably) with the first 500mm maybe solid sheets to allow the vines to be planted outside and trained to grow into the greenhouse.
Good thing that I started now tho: if it can’t go past the building line/stick out past the front of the house I will have to put it in the back or make it 2-3 connected greenhouses running from the side fence towards the house. Eight metres space there less 900mm fire separation and the the first vines can be 2m from the house so 5m from side fence to house and, assuming have to stay inside the building line, 12 – 4.5 = 8.5m wide = 42.5sqm. 2 rows of 3 vines but lots of canes so lots of grapes.
Built up beds for veges that can’t handle a Tassie winter—fill with composted manure etc—no dig gardening. Parterre potager the same—fuck digging all that clay!
they sell them in Australia too
