Bought for the missus to live in whilst I isolate in perfect harmony.....thanks!
I personally wouldn't pay triple figures for one of these plastic greenhouses, regardless of the size. If it's made of the same stuff as the smaller ones (and just scaled up) the metal poles will likely rust and disintegrate after 3-4 seasons, while the tarp cover will degrade with UV and tear/rip.

I think the little £10-30 one's are probably worth it, but for this money it might be worth putting something towards a proper steel/glass/wooden variety imo.

Ours (about 1/4 to 1/3 of the size and cost about £30) is on its 4th season and needed a decent amount of duct tape to hold it together and will probably need retiring come winter.

Good luck with this in the gales.
They can hold up against the wind. A couple of the guys on our allotment have them and have built a timber base and anchored them. They all survived the strong winds we had last year and early this year.

Personally I picked up a couple of glass green houses on Freecycle but they were hard work to take down and reassemble.
My mum has a similar type to this, even stuck in a corner against a house and screwed to a fence panel a reasonably strong wind had it falling apart. Glue the poles in, cross brace diagonally with 25mm X 25mm timber and weigh it down heavily it might just stay in your garden, anywhere out in the open ........goodbye. ..
I bought a VonHaus one in 2016, a 3m x 2m for £75 so it is now on it's 4th season, the first few years i removed the cover and stored it inside but last year i left it on so I could plant some very early potatoes but it is now starting to show signs of wear on the cover around the pole ends, i have proper repair tape (same stuff as they use for canvas tents) but the frame is still good and rust free.
I have been happy enough with it in general but i don't think i would buy another one as compared to a greenhouse it is a poor substitute. With a greenhouse it is easier to have power and light and proper ventilation but the tunnel gets very hot sometimes and this really stresses some plants out and then at night time they are always a few degrees colder than the greenhouse.
A replacement cover can be bought for around £50 but the wooden greenhouse that stands next to it is 20 years old and cost £300 but it will cost £500 to £600 to replace next year so i guess the greenhouse is the best bet in the long run.
I got the smaller Aldi poly greenhouse - got it to just about last two summers but like others have said, the cover tore, poles rusted and connectors got damaged by UV, went brittle and cracked. I picked up a great Palram greenhouse off eBay for £35. Like others have said, a pain to take town, transport and put back up again but only paid 10% of RRP and after a clean, it was good as new. I would not spend £100+ on one that's this style.
Wow, are they priced to stop panic buying or something?

I bought the next size down from Aldi for £50 and its genuinely excellent. Well thought out and tuff. I don't expect it to last more than 2 years at a push but it really is a greenhouse in a box. Plus the same day we put it up we then had 60mph gusts!

Exactly my thoughts when I saw this.
It might be worth checking ebay first. I purchased a larger 6m x 3m polytunnel from ebay back in 2015 for £105.00. We replaced the polytunnel cover in 2017. The polytunnel frame (and new cover) are still going strong. We live by the coast and the area frequently experiences high winds (80mph+). It's worth mentioning that we erected the polytunnel by building a breeze block base and creating two wooden doors– similar to the construction of a traditional polytunnel.
Rhaegel is right - check ebay!
My son got one of the aldi types last year and there is not much left of it now. The poles are thin and the plastic connectors snap at the drop of a hat. One person can pick up and carry the whole thing when assembled.
We have just bought and received today a 4 x 3 m one of ebay for £119 which, including the base bars, has 7 support poles running the length of the tunnel made out of 25mm galvanised steel. it also has cross beam supports at each corner. The cover is not much better than these to be honest, but the frame is excellent and we can replace the cover with something better if necessary later down the line. Quite impressed to be honest, frame weighs a lot but we also bought a set of long pegs made of rebar so it isn't going anywhere in the wind. Lots of junk ones on ebay too though, so just make sure you get something with a decent amount of quality support bars.

Still not too late to buy seeds and sow them yourself or have a look at ebay or amazon and you will find plants for sale there.

I normally do tomatoes in some home made planters designed to take grow bags and couldn't get any for love nor money. Just found local b&q had bags so following your comment I've also invested in a propagator, compost and seeds. Who knows how this'll go as normally just buy plants with great results.

Been looking at those grow sack things this week! My Dad does spuds in huge pots and they get a good supply too. Pulling them is like lucky dip as a kid! BTW, whatever happened to them!?!

I'm sure you can buy them. But venturing out now would be tough. Luckily ebay have them to order.

Are these things relatively air tight? I'm looking for something cheap to put up inside a garage when I need to do some paint spraying and was wondering if something like this could work or any other suggestions? The over spray gets on most things unless I clear the garage which is a pain and usually puts me off spraying at all.

It would probably be better to buy some sheet polythene and hang it from the ceiling like a shower curtain on four sides, quick to put up then remove. Spraying anything in an enclosed environment can be risky, even with PPE so always maintain suitable ventilation.

Thanks for the suggestion! I did try some polythene hanging from a gazebo but with the extraction (vaccum) it moved about without taping all the edges up, and wouldn't survive outside if I needed to move it out for a couple of nights!
