Spring Gardener Gable Greenhouse, 6 Feet X 8 Feet X 7 Feet

I’m so glad I bought it. I got it from Amazon at the link to the right and we put it up today. My husband and I had it up in about 1/2 hour. It’s so sturdy! The pipe frame that holds it all together is metal with a powder coat finish and it’s like the width of a canister vacuum cleaner handle, you know what I mean? I guess about 1 1/2 inches and it’s held together with wing nuts so you don’t even need a screw driver. Everything lined up just the way it was supposed to, unlike when I had to put the damn garden arch together in the front yard.

The cover is thick with big sturdy zippers and velcro. It has a front and a back door and 4 roll up windows with screens to keep the bugs out but allow ventilation on super hot days. It’s seriously cool. Also, to make sure the cover doesn’t flap around in the wind and weather, it’s secured to the frame with velcro straps on the inside at each corner and all these little bungie cords along the base and roof lines. (take a look at the pictures below)

I’m looking forward to getting some shelves in there and to get growing. I think I might want to move it closer to the house so I’ll be more likely to water frequently and it’ll be easier to get to in not so nice weather. The only spots closer to the house are quite shady now, but will get sun in the fall after the trees lose their leaves. So, do I leave it here, or move it? Decisions, decisions…
