There are lots of greenhouses for sale for the home gardener. Some appear to be very cheap – but when you delve into them, you will find they are made from cheap materials. Ask how thick the polycarbonate panels are. Ask whether the frames are aluminium and powder coated to minimise rust. Do they come with a guarantee ?
GardenSmart Hydroponics is one of the shops here at Gardenworld.

These New Zealand made greenhouses are designed for harsh kiwi conditions. In fact they have even been snowed on many times over there. They come with a 10 year guarantee. The panes have UV stabilized 6mm twin wall polycarbonate which helps keep the warmth in.
New Zealanders have learnt to live and survive in a harsh climate. In fact they have one of the most advanced hydroponic vegetable production industries in the world. the majority of their tomatoes, capsicums and cucumbers are all grown in greenhouses.
