Where to get polythene for growhouse?

BigDonut Posts: 291 Forumite

I converted an old shelving unit to be a grow house

I used some spare plastic I had but out has now ripped from uv exposure

So I'm looking to get some new plastic.

Can anyone recommend somewhere to buy from?

    Where abouts are you? If you're in and around Leicester, I'll give you some if you come and collect it.

    You need to buy UV stabilized polythene. Look in garden centers.
