Brilliant - that saves me a few £'s as I was going to buy a waterproof gazebo for my dwarf apple trees @ £89 (ok, it was much larger being 3mx3m but didn't need it that size). This should be perfect ready for winter. Although, going by the wind we've had the past three days, they may go in now!

dont waste your money if i was you, they are not good in the wind and i have had 2 covers for mine and have noe given up on it.

My MIL has got one smack bang in the middle of her garden so right open to the elements & its on its 3rd year now. Got 4 out of 5 stars on the reviews

I have to say the opposite. We had one to bring on tomatoes and the first real gust of wind, the steel tubes just bent, broke and it took off.

they should really sell it as a walk in kite.

I have fond memories of picking up bits of my sisters from the neighbours gardens last year.

Got one of these and if you use your brain and site it against a fence and screw it to a patio or concrete floor this will not go anywhere, People that say theres lasted 5 minutes and blew away were just lazy in picking the right spot and fastening it down properly in the first place..
Its not a wendy house it needs fastening down by drilling holes and rawplugging then screwing to the floor, Mine has had gale force gusts of wind thrown at it all last week and is still standing perfectly because I bothered to bolt the b*gger down..

Great product for a great price..Voted hot!

Edit: don't bother siting this on grass as the pegs supplied will not hold this to the floor in high winds....As I said bolt the thing to a patio or concrete!

Don't bother! We had one of these. It needed patching in the first year. We took it down and stored it in the shed over the winter, put it up again the next year and it ripped the first time it was windy.

See I rest my case!

Bought, can't go wrong for £25 quid. You won't get a second hand alli one that can stand up for that price. If it lasts a season, great.

exactly, if you secure it down the worst that will happen is that it will break/bend - the cover wont last though.....ive just bought a wooden gazebo...its 120kg but sited next to a 6ft + 1ft trellis fence and trees - it wont got anywhere even in some strong winds...however i will still secure it down

you are better off getting a cheapish greenhouse

If that's the large, I hate to see the small.

Yeah. I have one of these. It's about positioning and weighing it down. Tied full 5 litre water cans down to each corner on the inside and placed it a sheltered area against a wall, and haven't had any problems with wind since.

Only issue with this is you have to be quite careful with the cover - it got ripped twice when trying to put it up, which I'm not happy about, but sealing any rips with duct tape does the trick.

It has a LOT of space and my plants are doing amazingly well in the greenhouse. Have a blackcurrant bush, 4x chilli plants, 5x tomato plants and 2 x strawberry plants and still have a ton of space left. Could fit in 6 grow bags in easily with room to spare.

Only trouble is, don't expect it to last over 2 years. I imagine the smaller versions of these would last much longer.

Mine survived last weeks storms,just. Put 3 small paving stones over ground pipes to hold it down and lashed the cover to the frame too.
Zip is ripped to F*** though as expected. oO

Next door neighbour has lost two plastic greenhouses this year --- plus all of his small potted plants. The wind here is just too strong for things like that.

- funny - the Mrs says that to me every night! (boom! boom!)

- think that's 'large' compared with the other ones they have - any bigger 7 it would be a pollytunnel!

Brother in law has one of these & as far as I'm aware, has stood up reasonably well over the past few months.

For £25 I'd quite happily buy one every other year, would expect to take t down in winter but that's hardly a huge problem.

Got 2 in my garden ( or similar ) anchor it down properly and its going nowhere we had 50mph winds up here last week and both mine are still in the garden . no problems at all. If you dont have a fence go to the pound shop and buy a pack or tent stakes and a bundle of rope and tie over the top.

Same in this area, nothing within 25 miles.

Bought one of these last year kept getting blown over, the cover is awful. Binned it this year and bought a wooden frame version for £50 so much better. Save your money

waste of time not just in putting it up but also for all the damage it causes to your plants when it blows away.

bolt it down and the plastic cover will rip in the wind

non anywhere close - I was looking for something like this

I bought this when the missus started experimenting with gardening as a cheap entry level to the hobby. I put it up against a brick building on one side and against a thick tall hedge on another and the wind still took it for a ride.

The tubular steel is like cheap cutlery, good in one direction but totally pliable in every other direction and thus useless.

It can work for limited things in very limited circumstances but as a greenhouse where you don't want your seedlings scattered all over the floor, it is as much good as a chocolate fireguard.

Buy a proper greenhouse as we are.

really good size but it says its rip proof but its not it ripped in the first week:(

Why would anybody put that thing anywhere on their property?
Eyesore.

Then you didn't put it up right!

Theres no way the roof can hold water as its just a straight up and down on each side, So must of been a complete hash job of putting it up in the first place...lol

Bought one of these for my son last year blew away this year ruined lots of his plants. would not touch this with a barge pole.

It will blow away, rip or fall to pieces when it is Windy - This is the Official Answer.

I bought it 2 months ago when it was 2/3 price. I anchored in a corner of 2 walls. It lasted well in the wind for about 1 and a half months and just when I thought it made it the storm came. Only one metal piece bent but the whole thing was dancing up in the air.... was good while it lasted!

Had one of these, placed in a fairly sheltered position and lashed to a wall, wind destroyed it in 3 months.

Not worth the effort of putting it up!
