Has anyone else on the forum purchased the Walk-In Greenhouse €59.99 from LIDL this week ? I got the second last one left in Dundrum last night, Grange Rd. were all out. It only took an hour to put together and I was really impressed at the size (4ft 8in square) and its sturdyness.

This is my first venture into greengouse gardening and I did not want to commit major money until I get a fee for what I can achieve and this little greengouse seems to be just the ticket to get a taste for it.

I did see it but I didn't buy it, might do yet if there'sany left. I'd also like to test the water there too. But I have to say the stuff there is generaly good, I got some tools last year that are holding up well and the bulbs I bought last Oct are starting to show.

Hi Lius

I bought one last year, because like you I didnt want to commit too much.

It was great and really sturdy, but just a word of warning to take it down before the weather gets bad, at end of year, my one took off a few times even though i had the joints tapped and it was weighted down.

But a great buy, I got lots of chillies and tomatoes last year out of it, plent of room to move in too, and i even hung a hanging basket with strawberries out of the middle bar to help weigh it down.
I got a good bargan of a glass one this year, so another steep learning curve ahead.

Enjoy

Thanks for the comments;

I was worried about the aeronautical aspects also epically after reading the various runaway poly tunnel threads.

I put my greenhouse on an existing paved area backed-up against the 6ft north garden block wall with the door facing south and screwed heavy eyelets into the wall and paving slabs for tying it down. I hope this keeps it gounded.

I have one i bought in Argos. Just be careful of heavy rain as if there is any slack in the plastic it causes pools. It has damaged the frame slightly and we have ha to repair. Is just something to watch out for.
