Forum home The potting shed


Hi, I am looking for some advice. I am wanting to purchase a greenhouse but we live at the top of a very windy hill. I was wondering what type of greenhouse would best stand up to the wind. I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you,

    I had a Rhino Premium gh put in a couple of years ago on raised position and open to the horizon to the west where all the wind comes from. It's very sturdy indeed. Also recommended by Which?
    It also looks lovely

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    We live high up, 960’ and very windy, always go for glass, don‘t even think about polycarbonate or those plastic ones. 

    You can always put a few extra clips in the glass  but  it should be ok, I did lose the window last year, whole thing, frame as well but managed to mend it.

    My last one from "The Greenhouse People" we live opposite the South Downs, 10 minues from the sea and the combination causes a wind tunnel.  The greenhouse is toughened safety glass, and in my veg plot on a very "open" site.
