    We purchased a greenhouse over the winter, and while I haven't put anything out there as of yet since its been too cold in our area, I can attest that it seems to be well made, and sturdy. It's lightweight, and the wind has picked it up and blown it into the woods, so whatever greenhouse you get, anchor it WELL lol. We've since put cinder blocks on the plastic around the bottom, and it hasn't gone anywhere.

    At the risk of being just seen as self-serving here....I sell Palram Greenhouses on one of my websites (www.SunScapeDesigns.com). They are good quality, have a good reputation, and while some of them are high end compared to a lot of greenhouses out there, I have some of the best prices for Palram on the Internet.
