Greenhouse recommendations please

i am Northern Ireland and am desperately try to decide on either a Juliana or a Rhino greenhouse, I have narrowed it down to these two because Northen Ireland seems to have dropped off the end of the world and I have a very limited selection, (I can get a courier to deliver from the Rhino factory in Norfolk at an additional cost of £300), again because of the poor selection I have seen neither in the flesh, but was very disappointed in the quality of both the Halls and Eden brands.
i am exposed on an elevated open site an so the greenhouse is going to take some abuse from the wind and am therefore concerned about the frame quality.
Please help!!!

    I'd go with the Rhino and I would have done just that if funds would have allowed, but I bought a Hercules instead, which I'm very pleased with as it's excellent quality and very strong.





    @Pete8 on here has a lovely Rhino which looks very smart indeed.

    Hi,

    A big vote for Rhino from me ... had it 2 years now and love it!

    This is the company I ordered from ...

    http://www.greenhousesdirect.co.uk/

    I worked out what I wanted using the website to build up a quote. I then rang to see if they would take anything off for using the code (GW16) which is in the Gardeners' World magazine .... and they took off £89. I then asked if they could discount the shelving and freestanding staging and managed to get a further discount (think it was 10%). They were very helpful with all my questions ... and arranged for us to see one recently put up by another couple in our area ... and this was v. useful.

    They wanted to charge a bit more for delivery as I live in Scotland .... but I persuaded them to just charge the standard rate as we only live 10 miles north of the border.

    It's very good quality ... I splashed out and chose the Blue Grass colour and the stainless steel ramp.

    Did you get the classic or the premium

    Thanks @Sheps -2 years on and I'm still very pleased with it. Absolutely stuffed with plants atm.

    Thanks Sheps - that was last year - all a bit behind this year, but catching up. Yours looks really good too and very well laid-out
    I'd thoroughly recommend the Rhino
