Very nice enclosure, like the cold frame with the warm up gear.

Ok guys, here is my offering!

The whole enclosure is about 4m x 2.5m. I am open to all suggestions, criticisms, ideas etc as it is only a new enclosure and totally homemade, which means it is totally changeable!

My torts are out in the daytime whenever the weather is ok, and if it turns a bit bad they have the greenhouse to shelter in! Any ideas of good extra weeds to put in are also welcome, am just leaving everything to grow naturally to make it more like they would get if living in the wild.

There are water bowls in there which I fill with rainwater, I just forgot to snap them!




















And all closed up for when I need to go out and leave them unattended.



Thanks for looking!

Yes I did consider that but the greenhouse gets very warm in the day so I decided against it! I've also got a heat lamp set up in there for when it's needed, does that seem ok?

Gosh, it is brill. Love the pvc greenhouse, mind you it would blow down in my windy area.

I would plant some more weeds even if its for next years growth, grass can stay soggy for longer if it rains (in my garden anyway) I have milk thistle, forget-me-not, vetch, mint, Timothy Grass, pansies and more. Most of which I bought as seed on here.
