How Many of You Bring Half Your Garden Inside Over Winter?

Apple Brandy Emergency

I have started to make an apple brandy liqueur & found that the amount of Kilner Jar space it needs is more than I have so at the moment have most of the apples steeped in a sugar syrup solution with some brandy to preserve the apples that I have chopped.

Wooden Pallets

Are wooden pallets any good for making raised beds as I am looking at creating raised beds in Tetris shapes but want to keep the cost down. I dare say I would need to treat them if they are, but what would you say the best wood treatment would be for this scenario?

Transporting a greenhouse

I have the offer of my dad's greenhouse but my other half doesn't want to transport it as he is scared he may break it, is there a professional lot who can do such a thing? We have tried googling it but to no avail.
