    Comments about Garden Starter® Greenhouse:

    We have had our Garden Starter Greenhouse since 2011 and *love* it! This is not a pop up greenhouse by any means. It's solidly engineered and the materials are tough. It took us an afternoon to install the foundation (you supply 4x4s and rebar stakes) as we ran into underground rock in the chosen location that needed persuading. Then, it took a weekend to build and install the greenhouse... all time well spent. The instructions were clear and easy to follow but we were careful to make sure that both of us understood each step before proceeding. The pieces fit together well and the end result has been an awesome little greenhouse that easily meets our seed starting needs as well as allowing for early production of some veggies and late production of others.

    The greenhouse has withstood heavy snow, several ice storms, many hail storms (including one with one-inch hailstones) and damaging winds with gusts in excess of 50mph. The automatic vent opener has worked flawlessly.

    The only problems we've had are very minor:
    1) The little triangle of polycarbonate siding above the door was damaged in shipping. Gardner's Supply quickly replaced that piece.
    2) The aluminum hinge tape for the vent wore out after a couple of years and water was able to leak in during rain. Not a major issue but no one likes a big cold drip on the head. We bought a roll of the tape at the hardware store... problem solved!
    3) The door doesn't seal tightly. This is really only a problem if you're trying to overwinter tender veggies in harsh weather. It was important to us so we installed some cheap weather stripping... problem solved!

    We've been so impressed with the greenhouse that we are moving it with us to a new home and are eagerly anticipating getting some time to set it up.

      Comments about Garden Starter® Greenhouse:

      I bought this greenhouse(GH) as a temperate GH to start and harden off seedlings. I wish I had chosen a larger model as 6 x 8 is not very large. Beware of the assembly as my shipment came damaged and incomplete. It took at least 4 phone calls to get all parts and even then, some were damaged, mislabeled and misdrilled. If you are not particularly handy, do yourself a favor and spend a little more money to have a GH built for you. The other potential downside is that this model does not come equipped with accessories, such as benches, so you will need to outfit the inside yourself.

          I thought I was getting my dream greenhouse, boy was I wrong. Pieces were missing cuts, pieces didn't fit. Instructions confusing. Door is warped and rivets popped out. A mess

            This is a wonderful product. Makes me want a bigger greenhouse, but, I just need to curb what I plant.

            Comments about Garden Starter® Greenhouse:

            I've had my greenhouse over ten years now and I love it. In the spring I start my plants in it for my garden. I grow everything from garden vegetables to perennial flowers. During the summer it's a hot house for special plants that love heat. In the fall it's a place to harden off and extend season for house plants. During the winter it is a perfect place to over winter half hardy zone plants or plants newly divided and potted up in the fall for spring planting out. You just have to visit it on sunny days and make sure nothing in their dries out. I've had Johnny jump ups blooming and cat mint growing in it all winter. The panels have gotten cloudy with age but the loss of light doesn't seem to make any difference to my plants. When I set out better looking plants than you can buy at a commercial greenhouse in the spring I don't think it's much of an issue. The only maintenance I've ever had to do is keep a shade cloth on it in July and August and the vent in good repair and hose the roof clean. I only have one complaint about it. It needs some cross ventilation for the extreme heat it will build up. A vent over the door or maybe even a door that is "Dutch" would fix the problem. As it is I have to leave the door open all summer which is an open invitation to stray cats and bees. Neither or which are welcome in there. It was one of the best things I've ever purchased and if something happened to it I would have another one.

              This greenhouse has been such an outstanding investment. The quality is 200% better than any other "kits" on the market. Framing is very sturdy, panels are strong, exceptional product for the price. Handles the snow load of northern Michigan with not a single problem. I recommend this to anyone I know who wants a greenhouse!
