Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larose Just what I needed!
I was looking for something to house my tropical patio plants in for the winter in Louisiana. This heavy duty greenhouse is the perfect for my needs. The zipper closures are double-sided and heavy duty as well. Includes a mesh door and window for aeration and I love the the access ports for hoses and/or electrical wiring. As a 62 year old female, I am usually able to master projects, however with this one I had to ask my son to help me get it up as the tension on the rods is very strong. It took him about 20 minutes. It stands under my patio roof line so it is protected from wind. So far, it's worked out great for my needs!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Symbiot55 Better than I expected
The greenhouse frame is easy to set up and pops together like a camping tent frame. The cover is well made, with a vent window in back and a double zippered screen and cover door. I was able to stand up inside and easily fit all my large and small potted plants inside for winter protection, which is exactly what I bought it for.
It does not come with any internal shelving. Fortunately, I had some leftover from an old portable greenhouse that had dissolved in the sun.
The plastic cover seems strong, well made, and looks like it will hold up against sun/UV light for a long time (meaning at least a couple of years).
The instructions advise taking it down and storing when not in use, which will extend the plastic cover's life even more.

I got this to overwinter my potted plants in, and I also have a water plant that I don't want to lose. I had planned to turn my patio into a sunroom, but to do that I need to work with the HOA, architects, contractors, etc. When I saw this, I decided to use it to prove the concept (it's not quite 1/2 the size of my patio) before beginning the sunroom process.
Setting it up was much easier than many of the tents I've set up. I would have given this a 5, but the front frame was bent in shipping and the bottom of the door doesn't lie flat on the ground, it's about 3 inches above. I put 2x4s around the thick cloth edges to keep the greenhouse down (and critters out). My patio is partially enclosed so I don't expect the bent frame to cause many issues.
They included a sun shade, which I am using because it gets really hot in my little greenhouse (as expected). With my plants, I have enough room in there for two chairs and a table surrounded by the plants, so I can go enjoy it this winter like a mini sun room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ESS GREAT PRODUCT, BUT.........
As of now, I have 4 greenhouses of various sizes. They all work well for me with a little help. I usually cover them w/heavy duty clear plastic and install a small heater to get my plants through a New England winter. I put a stick-on zipper on the front and that works well for a couple of years.
The two biggest problems are:
1. The door zippers...they seem to break after a season or two and you need to be creative to keep the greenhouse usable. Really bad door design in my opinion which results in stress for the zippers.
2. Taking the house down! Pictures are of no help and I end up folding it best I can and stuffing it into my one permanent greenhouse. A step-by-step video would be much more helpful!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GeorgiaGal Okay, but one major problem
I am in Georgia and purchased and assembled this unit, and even though I thought it was fairly well designed, I immediately saw a problem with the doorway. There is a nice piece of webbing with a quick release buckle at chest high, when you close the door, but there wasn't one at knee high where the bottom of the zipper door is very stressed. After 2 months, the plastic wall pulled away from the zipper and now I have a large hole, just to the right of the zipper at knee height. Please be aware of this, but otherwise, the unit has done well. I just have to figure out how to fix the hole in the torn plastic wall.

The instructions were not very clear, but I figured it out. It would be a lot easier with two people, but one person can handle it. Once it was all put together, I love it. I actually bought it for a "shop" area rather than a greenhouse. It has plenty of room for my work table and concrete molds, and supplies.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Golfin Great winter storage for my wife's potted plants and tall vines.
Easy to assemble and an attractive addition to our deck gardening area. Its portability makes it easy to move to sunny areas for spring seedlings or sheltered winter protection. Plenty of room inside for our purposes. So far it has held up well through several wind storms. The venting features are very good. Works well with a small heater to prevent freezing. Wife's happy so I'm happy.
