Great product. Recommend.
We have a small suburban garden and needed something that would have enough useful space without taking up half the garden. This item was perfect. I read the previous reviews and decided to take the plunge.
The greenhouse is delivered flat packed on a large pallet. We opted to paint it before assembly and after some outrageous choices decided upon the cream as shown in the illustration. It did take 4 coats to cover but looks lovely once done. Small niggle - you can't get to the underside of the two opening windows cross beams so they remain in the natural wood colour. A huge plus if you opt to paint is that all the windows are plastic coated both sides so you can slap it on with no fussy cutting in or masking.
Assembly definitely requires two people and took a day to do. We are really happy with the result. Pre-drilling of holes recommended and a power screw driver makes life much easier.
Neat little greenhouse. Easy to put together- my wife and I managed it tho the instructions aren't the best. Often the order of build was a little off requiring a deconstruct and reconstruction. Delivered damp so been unable to paint at the moment but the Perspex panes (not glass) are covered with a film so should be relatively easy once the weather cheers up. Cant see why you'd need a bigger one.
Great item, would recommend
if you are looking for a space saving green house this is the one for you. Really easy to put together as long as there are two of you! I've painted mine a sage green colour so I was thankful for the plastic covering the glass as it was easy to remove after painting and no paint on the glass!
Thank you for a great service in terms of ordering and delivery.
My greenhouse purchase was very easy and it arrived as planned the two men who delivered it were great and made sure it arrived in perfect condition.
The delivery pallet was great and doubled up as a drying rack when painting the greenhouse in county cream. The protective film on the windows meant that there was no need to mask the windows while painting and it came away easily once the paint was dry.
Construction probably took a couple of hours, the instructions were fairly easy to follow and it is great that once assembled you can customise it depending on where you want shelves etc.
I am delighted with this small but perfectly formed greenhouse just enough room for me to sit in, but also plenty of room to organise my plants.
It did take two coats of paint but it was worth the extra effort.....I love it.
Very good value for money
A very well made product, it is very easy to build and use.
Tall Wall Victorian Greenhouse
Fantastic value around £30 cheaper than its nearest rivals and free delivery!
Arrived in a very substantial wooden packaging container so I now have some useful timber for my allotment.
Excellent value for money
As with all Greenhouses/Sheds Flatpacks etc you have your moments, however have patience and take time to read all of the instructions twice. It wont always make sense and you may have to ignore the instructions and make your own decisions, we added a brace across the back to make it more stable. We had to plane off the leading edge of one of the doors to get them to shut properly. But when completed all trials and tribulations forgotten, divorce cancelled it looked really good.
I purchased this only after a lot of thought after reading other mixed reviews. I was planning to make one complete myself but just do not seem to be able to find the time. Product is what I expected for the price. It could be improved in some areas but I guess this would increase cost and put it out my budget range. I would not recommend this for a DIY novice as to assemble it took some time and I needed some clamps and tools that not all will have. Overall I am happy with the finished product and looking forward to the summer when it will be full of plants.
My wife has been on at me about getting a green house for years.
When I saw this I spoke to my daughter and we agreed it would fit in a place in our small garden.
The guys delivering were very helpful and polite.
Now we had a few issues putting together had to reconstruct some bits and found it hard to fit the the doors oh and you need to add some extra screws!!
On the whole very pleased with this product and is good value for money.
A bit disappointed, if i'm honest
I perhaps had too high expectations when ordering this, based on the nice pictures of the painted growhouse provided by the manufacturer. I was going to paint it myself until I read the small print on the instructions - "if it is altered in any way (eg. Painted) the manufacturer cannot be liable for any resulting damage". Given there is a 15 year guarantee I wouldn't take the risk of painting it just in case they dont honour the guarantee.
Anyway, I checked all the bits and fair enough, they were all there as listed. Two of us started building it - don't try doing it yourself, as it will be a real struggle until you get the back and sides all screwed together. The first thing I noticed was that one of the back panels was about 1/2 inch shorter than the other, and the horizontal battens didn't line up because of this.
Other bits lacking in quality were one of the roof panels where the corner joint had not been fully pushed home before it was nailed together, resulting in a poor fit on the roof. This same type of fault was present on two of the door panels.
Another gripe was that when I fitted the two doors with the supplied hinges, they wouldn't close in the middle. When I looked closely, the photograph of the painted growhouse on the delivered product showed it was fitted with flush hinges, not the butt hinges supplied in the kit. I went out and bought some for a couple of quid and hurray! The doors closed.
Also, there are not enough screws supplied in the kit to fix all the bits together (the amount listed was correct as per the instructions). If you screw together using all the fixing holes as instructed, you are quite a few short. I had to go rummaging in the garage to find enough to complete it.
Having said all the above, despite all the messing around to align the shelves properly because of the wonky back panel, I am quite pleased with the overall result. If they just paid a bit more attention to quality control, and gave you the right bits it would have made it a lot easier!
