Greenhouse advise

Hi

im planning to buy a small greenhouse for the very first time. I have around 2x4 meters to place it.

any recommendation on what to buy?

moreover I want to keep strawberries, tomatoes and peppers plants inside, plus growing any other veg (any advise will be welcome.

thanks!

    We are in the process of doing the same thing, I've found looking on the internet quite frustrating as you just can't see what your going to get. We've decided that as order times are so extended that we'll wait till next year and hopefully we can go view some in the flesh. The most common advice I've had of all gardener's is to go for as big as you can fit sensibly in the space you have

    Obviously, I don't know your details, but planning and building your own is hugely satisfying, especially if, like me, you're not high on manual skills.  It can be done.
  • Another thing I forgot to mention, I want it to be easy to unmount. This one looks ok to me

    Those things never work for me - unless you have a very sheltered position they only last one season. And when the wind broke it, not so easy to dismantle and reuse. I’m hoping for a greenhouse, sunroom combination one day.

    It might help if you let us know your budget. There's plenty of similar sized greenhouse that are more sturdy but with those small ones trying to regulate the heat and humidity can be a nightmare. As someone said above: bigger is better when it comes to greenhouses. https://www.twowests.co.uk/collections/pest-control-38
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.
  • Budget can be around £100, for me the main constrain is that i want it to be easy to unmount as it will only stay from october to march/april, i want to remove it during spring/summer

    @Javi.xeneize think we were at crossed purposes with the area you quoted I thought you were after a bigger more permanent solution. 2mt X 4mt is not far off what I'm looking at
