Gardman R700 5-Shelf Steel Frame Greenhouse

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

I’ve been very happy with my Gardman Greenhouse, except that it’s tearing away from its zipper towards the bottom. Really not cool, considering it’s only been in use about a month!

The pros: love that the cover is dark enough to keep seedlings from being burned by direct sun; the moveable shelves; lightweight enough to pick it up and move it if it’s in the wrong place; it looks great in the garden! Nothing says “serious gardener” like a greenhouse, and I’m a show-off!

The con: the tear that I mentioned. It doesn’t affect its function, but after only a month in very gentle hands: really?! It’s about six inches now.

I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of this item over the years. Even if the cover wears out from the elements, I’ll always use the shelves and grids. It’s fastened to the ground with landscape staples and leaning against the side of the house so the wind can’t knock it over. If it weren’t fastened down, it would blow over probably by blowing on it — this is a VERY lightweight item! I love it!
