Hi everyone
We would like to build a green house/ shade house for growing seedlings etc. Ideally it would be best near the 'potting shed' which is near the rabbit's 'Flop(sies) House', but it is quite shady from trees there.

We are thinking of putting it where the plants are growing in this pic-it is too shady for the herbs growing there currently (have already moved most of those), but it is a good position in relation to the potting shed.
We would like to learn from other gardener's experience if possible before we build.....
Should it be in a shady area or is more sun better?
Is it better to cover in plastic/laserlite or shade cloth?-if it is plastic we would need to water all year around, if it is shade cloth I will get wet in there in winter.....

Any suggestions gratefully received!!
Deb and Mack

Can you build a lean to on the northside of the stables, perhaps a mix of shadecloth and laserlite.

Do you mean to the right of the fridge? There is quite a different level of ground there (about waist height). We had thought of to the east (behind the big green bin) but it is also very shady and would block an air flow through to the rabbits.
Is it better to be shady or better to be sunny???
Where the plants are to the left of the photo gets some full sun as well as shade, so I had thought of there but it could be a bit cramped.
Appreciate your contribution!!!!
