If you can't make a greenhouse for £300, don't make a greenhouse for £300.
I had read reviews before purchase which gave 3-4 stars and was expecting cheap and cheerful, but serviceable.
The wood is sprayed with a short lasting wood preserver and must be painted of stained properly before construction. The spray was applied patchily and is a horrific 'spray tan' orange (it looks less day-glo in the online pictures) which is very hard to cover with paint requiring three coats so factor this in to construction time.
Once painted we started construction. The windows aren't fitted to make painting easier so we did these first, but soon discovered the grooves for the plastic panes did not line up. We had to make the bottom grooves wider with a chisel. Even then the plastic pane was too long for two of the panels by a whole 10mm so we had to cut them to size.
When we started screwing the whole thing together we found that the opening window was damaged- it sort of works. There seem to be gaps between the roof and walls, which I wasn't expecting...oh well, at least it won't get too humid for my cucumbers.
Now the greenhouse is up it looks OK, and it will do the job but its poor construction meant the job took a lot longer (and more tools) than was expected. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend. Perhaps to someone I didn't like!

I knew from the description this was a budget greenhouse but I was still a bit disappointed for the price I paid. The greenhouse needed painting as the spray finish was very patchy, this was very time consuming. The instructions were not very clear and there are gaps in the finished version under the roof. Now it is finally finished it will do, but I would not recommend the product.

Not a bad overall greenhouse for the price. The order was all complete without any hiccups.
It will need laying on a level slab Base so make sure of that because it does not have a floor.
All of the windows will need sealing with frame sealant caulk after the greenhouse has been erected so don't expect it to be water tight with out sealing them.
Looks very smart after it was all painted and sealed.

i received this item on time and within the 2 week time frame.The green house is as expected but the instructions are rubbish.If you work them backwards way on they work.I would recommend it but it takes a full day to erect and needs 2 people to do it.
