Make a five-eighths, three-frequency icosahedron greenhouse for £30
I wanted to make a greenhouse growing dome using recycled materials
With a large 3 frequency dome its important to build a model to follow as things can get complicated.
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
An icosahedron is a 20 faced spherical shape recognised even by Ancient Greek mathematics – I use one here to make a greenhouse
