Make a five-eighths, three-frequency icosahedron greenhouse for £30
I wanted to make a greenhouse growing dome using recycled materials
The grow dome worked very well in the spring, nearly all the seeds sprouted but there were a couple of problems.
For this basic ‘wild’ dome construction I used a very simple method of joining struts
I built a fair size greenhouse dome with a diameter of 315cm, an internal height on the inside edges of 165cm sloping up to 230cm in the middle.
An icosahedron is a 20 faced spherical shape recognised even by Ancient Greek mathematics – I use one here to make a greenhouse
