Lining a Greenhouse

I have a small hexagonal metal greenhouse and I want to line it for the Winter with bubble-wrap. Because the struts are metal I'm having difficulty in finding clasps to fix the bubble-wrap to the metal. Any ideas greatly appreciated. Dottie Mayx

Morning Dot, would strong magnets work?? Or could you get OH to drill a small hole through the metal struts, then put some cord through them and pierce the bubble wrap (like a big stitch) to hold it up in place. ?? ;0)

You are asking a lot from my OH Yummy - he doesn't even own a drill!!! My neighbour suggested this morning that I try pegs (washing type) When I close it up this evening I'll have a look and see if that could be an idea. Many thanks for your input Yummy. Dottie Mayx

...Should I send K over tout suite ?? I suppose I am really spoiled when it comes to getting things done, I have the idea and it is carried out no probs. He is just knocking me together a cold frame for the seeds you sent me...only a bad back has prevented it being done already... I will send him on the next boat !! :0)

Hi Dottie May,
If all else fails how about using velcro? One side stuck to the bubble wrap and the other side positioned tastefully (or at least discreetly) on the inside of the greenhouse. The velcro does not need to be very wide.

Simple. Use paperclips. open up the clip to a right angle, push one side down between the glass and the frame, the other is then poked through the bubble wrap and bent upwards. Works for me!.

I use opened up paperclips to hang the baubles on the Christmas tree, for the outside one too, good idea .

Went back to this thread and found Biggs it was you who suggested Velcro. When I was in Aldi's they had packs of the stuff, about 3/4 of an inch wide. Haven't tried it out yet, hopefully next week. Will report back. Dottie Mayx
