Rated 5 out of 5Â by AloeVeraGrower Very pleased and happy plants
I bought two of these smaller greenhouses for my plants this winter. Instead of putting them on my patio I decided to put them in the back of my yard, sheltered on two sides by the fence and metal shed. I'm using spare bricks to hold them down instead of the metal stakes, and even in strong winds they remain standing. Christmas lights are keeping the inside aloe vera plants warm. The 3x3 greenhouse was obviously shorter and harder to scoot the plants into; I prefer the 4x4 version just because it's easier to squat inside and move the plants around. These are EXACTLY what I have needed for years and am thrilled to have them! I'll take them down at the end of winter and store in the round holders for next winter.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SciChick Worth Every Penny - Can't Say Enough Positive Things About It
I have many containers of tropicals (Plumeria, Adenium, Hibiscus, etc) and wanted an alternative to bringing them indoors for the winter. A friend recommended this little greenhouse and the price was right so . . .
Everything you need (except a heater) came with this greenhouse - stakes, little ropes to tie it down, a shade cloth and a storage bag. The quality is excellent; all the seams are well-stitched and tight, all the stabilizer pockets were well attached and the plastic/vinyl is heavy.
It took about 5 minutes to set up. I put it on the patio and, since I couldn't stake it down on a concrete surface, I put six cinder blocks on the inside flange (at the bottom). The greenhouse never moved. My husband made shelves to sit on the cinder blocks which increased the space while still leaving a decent open area in the center for taller/bigger plants. I put a remote-sensing thermometer in it and a $20 ceramic space heater (both bought from Home Depot) in it.
Winters here in north Texas are generally mild-ish but we got hit with some serious cold a couple of times this year including an ice storm that lasted almost 5 days with temps dropping into the teens and never getting out of the 20s. Between the greenhouse, the little ceramic heater and a lightweight blanket I threw over the top at night to hold in the heat, the temperature inside the greenhouse never went below 65. It was backed up to a south facing wall which I'm sure helped, too.
I put the shade cloth on when it began to heat up during the day but was still cool at night and, with the outer door partially unzipped during the day for ventilation, stayed in the 80s to low 90s.
Best of all, the hibiscus and Adeniums started blooming in February and the Plumeria bloomed shortly after I took down the greenhouse. All plants were healthy and green at the end of the winter instead of sad and pathetic from lack of light inside.
Easy to take down - just hosed it off inside and out, let it dry and folded it up. Everything fits in the storage bag, ready for the fall.
I'll be getting another, larger Flower House for some tall tropicals. You won't be sorry if you buy this.

Works great. We had a big wind storm and it made it through without any issues.

Looks like it will withstand the winter. Plenty of room inside.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ahamp1 Holds up to weather
I purchased one of these in November, thinking I would first use it as a shelter in the pen of a wounded Pekin duck we rescued earlier in the year, and then I would use it more traditionally. I just purchased another; the duck is attached to it and I don't think she'll be giving it up! ; )
We did use a lightbulb in the house, based on another reviewers suggestion, and it probably upped the temperature another ten degrees in the greenhouse.
It's made quite well and withstood our rugged weather this winter, including a snowfall of seven inches and some 50 mph winds. It cleans beautifully (thank heavens, see duck comments above), also.
The photo does not show that there are stakes included so that you can anchor the top of the greenhouse. In our case, we anchored to the pen so the stake lines would not hamper entry and exit, I could see where you would have to be more careful when entering if the stake line was towards the ground.
It's roomy, but you do have to "duck" when you are in it.
