It’s nice but a pain to build
I purchased the greenhouse along with the auto vents for my birthday back in March/April. Due to Covid the delivery took a while to arrive which is fine. It finally arrived end of May/start of June. Instructions state you need a drill to make holes which is fine if you have one or are somewhat decent at diy. It took us a couple days to put together as I was painting it as we went along. Some of the bits are so fiddly so I would have preferred some pre drilled holes to make sure it’s built correctly. Somehow the doors warped so they don’t close properly, we’ve had to sand them and same thing with the vents which we’ve also had to sand after the auto vents warped because the vents got stuck. I’ve got to sand it further as it still catches when opening. The auto vents worked for around 3 days and have since not worked. One warped as I mentioned above due to extreme pressure as it couldn’t open the vent and I didn’t realise as I wasn’t home at the time so that was a waste of money. The other auto vent that should be working refuses to even with the hot weather we had last week (19th July) so I’m very tempted to return them as faulty because they clearly aren’t doing their job. Overall the greenhouse looks nice and works well, my plants are happy at the moment, will have to see how it holds up over the years. If the makers of the greenhouse read these, please pre-drill the holes, will save us scrambling to borrow a drill from a friend who also needs it.

Just what I wanted
The greenhouse is pretty much exactly as I expected it to be. It arrived late January, in lockdown, so I decided to paint it as I had nothing else to do. It was pretty damp when it arrived, so we had to bring the pieces into the house to dry out for several days first. Painted every piece with 2 coats of of Cuprinol Garden Shades (used nearly all of a 2.5L tin), and was very happy with the result. I slid the glazing panels out of the 2 opening roof windows to paint the bit you couldn't otherwise get to. Took 2 of us half a day to put it together- it wasn't difficult, but there were one or 2 little hiccups. Make sure you put the top and bottom front crosspieces on the right way round so the recesses for the door catches are both in the right place! Cue a little chiselling and filling... The shelves on one side wouldn't fit in, so we had to undo the middle screw fixing the back and side panel together, slide the shelves in, then put the screw back in. Followed the advice of others and used a piece of the packing crate as a cover strip for the join between the 2 back panels, which makes it feel much sturdier. I also put a strip on the edge of one of the doors on the inside, to cover the gap between them, as it was quite wide. The finish/quality of some of the bits of timber was a bit variable, some of it could be better, but you don't notice once it's all been assembled. We had ordered one autovent with it, which worked extremely well, and I have now ordered one for the other window as well. Depending on what I end up growing, I can see myself making alterations to enable one of the top side shelves to be removable to allow for more taller plants. Very excited to see what new things I can grow this summer!

We ordered this mid covid so delivery was a bit delayed.Having said that once we got a delivery date the greenhouse arrived and the tracking system was very good .Unfortunately we could not be at home on delivery day,but that's the beauty of the live tracking.Item delivered ,photos sent immediately showing house number and the item on my drive. Packing crate was all wood and very sturdy.TIP strip the crate apart carefully ,you can use the timber. We painted ours 2 colours after letting the wood dry out for a week, and if your doing the same leave the protection on the plastic windows. Assembly was straight forward,but read the instructions several times and sort/size screws and fittings. You do need to pre drill every hole for the screws. We made a few modifications,living in a very windy coastal area we purchased two slide bolts so both windows can be locked closed .Instead of the catches supplied for the moveable shelves we used 4 metal straight mending plates, 1 screw for each and just swivel to use as supporting the shelves. There is no cover strip for the centre of the 2 joined back panels,this is where the timber from the packing crate comes into play,use a length cut to size and job done Additionally you can cut to size some more of the timber to make a base for the greenhouse which is what we did. Like a previous review we had a little issue with the hinges on the doors,I thought the screw heads a bit larger than the counter sink in the hinge , easily overcome with slightly smaller headed screws.So to sum up the greenhouse is well made and once assembled very sturdy We can confidently recommend this product.

Excellent and Well Made Product
I selected this greenhouse due to space as it was the largest size I could fit at the side of my house. Although it was being placed on paving stones to the side of the house, I built a rectangular base of seasoned timber to attach it to. Fairly straight forward to assemble, although the odd parts require a second person to assist. I did have to chisel out the frame and the doors to install the hinges in order for the doors to close coherently. Also needed to use a few extra screws than those supplied, but all went well. Took about One and a half days to assemble. Also bought 2 Auto vents with it and fitted these to the two opening roof windows. These were straightforward to install and operated immediately within minutes of fitting. Great product and already using it to grow tomatoes.

Excellent compact greenhouse
This is a great compact greenhouse and the auto vents are working very nicely. A few tips (if you are not a big DIYer like me!) - it took us a full day to build it and in places the instructions could be clearer. Have some spare screws to hand as we didn't receive all the screws needed in the delivery. We used a Stanley knife to remove the blue film from around the edges of the window, this made it relatively easy to remove after we had painted & assembled the parts. If you are after a greenhouse for a small space, this is great value for money.

How weather resistant is the acrylic glazing? Does it fog or lose clarity?We Replied:
Dear Lyndsey Thank you for your question. During humid or cold temperatures acrylic can fog temporarily with condensation but, like all glazing, this will quickly dissipate. Long term, acrylic is a great material for outdoor use as it is highly weather resistant and does not pose the same danger as glass when children are playing nearby. The only maintenance is to give the panes a wash with soapy water once or twice a year and rinse.. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren.Monday 20th, April, 2020
