      TRUSTWORTHY

      all reviews
      I’ve other reviews on this site detailing my endeavours in the garden, and my experiences with gardening and greenhouses of all shapes and shades. This sizeable walk in option is one of the better ones I’ve stumbled up out of the less conventional options (those being the regular shaped, sturdy PVC walled ones).

      Like many cheaper alternatives on the market, this one doesn’t have PCV panelling or a firm, metallic frame. Instead, this is one of the tubular steel options – a lightweight, but study enough frame that holds up well. Instead of PVC panelling, this has a lightweight plastic sheet that slides over the frame and substitutes for the PCV walls.

      Dimensions wise – this is one of the better options, filling a cubic shape of just under 2 metres squared. It’s not ideal dimension wise – a more rectangular shape would benefit a greenhouse, but it’s a nice space all the same and one you can really be imaginative with. Unlike similar items, with many


      shelves slotting in and leaving little space – this greenhouse offers to rows of shelves that travel alongside each side of the greenhouse. These shelves are perfectly serviceable and will carry decent sized pots, but they don’t encroach on the interior space, leaving plenty of open space to work with.

      This is ideal for ground growing – tomato plants and growing bags will fit nicely at the bottom of the greenhouse, and the mounted shelves are placed low enough that you can grow tall growing plants on these. Because of its decent size, it might be worth considering whether to station it on grass or a concrete base – as you don’t want to risk weeds growing within your greenhouse and once your plants have taken shape and the space is grabbed, it’s no easy task moving the thing to trim the grass beneath.

      The quality of the materials isn’t the greatest. The tubular frames are all sturdy enough, but the plastic sheathing isn’t the greatest material ...


      • in the world. Over time, it will rot and when you’ve got something built for the garden, you can’t prevent this. Keeping a close eye on the condition of the product is something I’ve done, and I’ve noticed some decay thanks to rainwater. The zipped panel leading into the greenhouse is also tricky. The zips aren’t sturdy and will snap, and if they do you have to be careful that the fabric around the zip line doesn’t rip.

        The roof panel is another point of contention. As the greenhouse is of a decent space, the roof panel is also fairly big. There’s not enough framing to ensure a snug fit and some improvised internal framing will likely be called for. This isn’t a huge drama, but it will have to be done if you want to have a comfortable and sturdy space to grow and pass time in.

        Price wise, this is particularly good. You can find the item for around £50 from most retailers that specialize

        or cover outdoor items and hobbies. If you look online, you will find cheaper alternatives but as the product comes flat backed for self assembly, missing components is something you really should consider before ordering from online sources.

        Many of the major retailers will also sell items like this on discount, usually half price, when the summer and gardening season isn’t in its prime, and even if you have to wait several months before sunny weather to erect it, it’ll store well in a shed or garage.

        I’d recommend this to anyone just getting into gardening. It’s a nice sized structure and you’ll have more than enough space to play with, without having to invest a big whack of money in something more permanent. And also, you’ll be able to quickly dismantle if you don’t want to continue the hobby, without having to worry about dismantling the more permanent PVC structures.

        A worthwhile purchase, but do some of your own research to make sure this item is for you.
