I want to build a greenhouse, but where it would work for sun exposure and access is only 2-3 foot to bedrock. Any ideas on how to anchor PSP into rock? Or is this a place that just has to use a different method?

Use a masonry bit on your drill and drill a hole in the bedrock. Drill a corresponding hole in the bottom of your post and insert a rebar spike.

Interesting problem? Did the proposed solution work? I would love to know your results!
 
Don't listen to Steve. Just read this tiny ad:
