Greenhouse Advice


I have been considering getting a greenhouse for my allotment and have my eye on this LacewingGreenhouse - does anyone have any experience of these products? I was thinking of getting the base as well.

I would like polycarb due to it being on an allotment.

Any advice, options etc would be great.

Is it value for money?

Is it structurally sound / safe? How do polycarbs do in wind etc? Are they good / effective?

    That looks like a solid piece of kit but it is a bit small image. Every one regrets not getting a bigger greenhouse. You could try your local paper/Gumtree/Freecycle to find a better, cheaper (even free!) greenhouse.

    Thanks steephill - I would ideally like like a bigger one, but as i'm on an allotment I can only have 25% of the area as 'structures' which includes, shed etc.

    Will have a look on gumtree - I definitely woudl like a polycarb - have you had any experience with them?
