This is the third year that I am growing in my Gardener's Greenhouse. I absolutely love it. Every year I get a little more daring. The first year I used it minimally to grow my plants once late spring came. Last year I started using it a little earlier, this year is the middle of February and gets to be 15 degree's outside at night while we have had 55 degree days. I have set things up so that My greenhouse has stayed between 65 and 70 degrees all day and night.
For less then $1,000 I got my greenhouse which holds at least 56 standard sized growing trays, my heater, an automatic vent and a shade cover. It also has a misting system but I love to water my plants so I have not tried it.
I admit I would love to have a place to go into and hide from my kids but quite fankly I can't fit it or afford it.
It took me, single (unmechanically) handed about 8 hours to put together. It is sturdy and the company is great. Any time I call, they have answers. I even called the 2nd and 3rd years to ask for pieces I lost. Not a problem. I broke 3 pieces of glass (actually my kids did) and they replaced them immediately with no charge. They even sent extra glass.
I see endless possiblities. You can move it to the shade without much hassle. I don't see why I can't wrap it in plastic for really cold wheather, although I don't think I will have to.
It is sturdy, not much to clean and I honestly could not say enough about how happy I am with it.

This is my first greenhouse and it was purchased after much research and consideration. I am confined to a wheelchair and needed a greenhouse to which I had complete access. No narrow central aisle, too high potting tables and shelves, no lip on a too narrow doorway...
This greenhouse went up in about eight hours. My husband did most of it by himself, except when a second pair of hands was needed (not often). Everything went together with precision and ease. Instructions were clear and concise with pictures of each step.
In addition, the few calls I've made (which were general questions) were handled courteously and quickly. A lifetime warranty comes with the greenhouse as well. The entire package, including all accessories, was less than $1,000. The packaging was incredible and not a single piece of glass or framing was lost, damaged or incomplete. For a small space, novice greenhouser or disabled gardener, I cannot recommend this company or product highly enough.
