Have got the gardening bug in the last few years and our current garden is too small for a greenhouse....but....we're moving yay! And the garden is much bigger so I'll have space. I want to get a decent quality and size and would ideally like a shed attached so I can potter off/ shut the door..

Tips pretty please

You lucky scallywag! I only dream of a greenhouse envy .
Not sure Greenouses but for a shed make sure you get tongue and groove panels. The overlap/shiplap don't last particularly well and the weather in this country can wreak havoc. Also make sure you use a wood treatment on it to preserve the wood and stop it rotting. Plus you can get some really nice colours now too. Enjoy.

Pople always say that no matter how big a greenhouse you get, you are sure to fill it up with plants. Irritatingly, this turns out to be true. So basically, the tip is to get the biggest one you can afford / fit in.

Yes get the biggest you can afford and get glass. The polycarbonate ones take off or pop panels left right and centre in the winds!
