I bought my Village Green- Deluxe Walk-in Greenhouse- “12 sturdy shelves for pots and seed trays” at the Big Lots in Santa Ana, CA (USA)
3321 S Bristol St
Santa Ana, CA 92704
when they had all their Summer products on sale for 80% off. It came out to only $12! (Originally $119). If it turns out to be amazing or Eh, either way, $12 is an amazing deal! Can’t beat that! I was surprised they had so many left! 🙂
*Remember that I bought this at the Big Lots! end of Summer blow out sale in 2015 so i had to wait ALL Winter long until it was finally time to set up! Every time I walked passed the box in the garage I became so anxious to pull it out! But FINALLY the time came, and I actually just finished setting it up last week, and now it’s almost time to start planting!
So, like I said, I will keep you all updated and let you know how it holds up this year throughout the seasons. I did some research after purchasing the Greenhouse to hear about what other people’s experiences’ were with it. It was pretty much 50/50. Some people said that it did what was expected for a inexpensive plastic greenhouse and others said that it didn’t even hold up a week through their extreme weather conditions. They said that it blew across their yard after the first day. I figured that I would be OK because I live in Southern California and our weather is… Well as you all probably know… is PERFECT almost 100% of the time. I also knew that I wouldn’t be hard on it, to where I had to worry about the plastic ripping. All I would need it to do it sit there and pretty much just “look pretty”. Although, just to be on the safe side, I took my Grandma’s advice and put these big gray Cinder Blocks (that were already in my backyard) on top of the metal bars that were on the ground. I will post pictures of the final set up of my Greenhouse tomorrow because it’s already to dark to take a picture tonight.
UPDATE!!! 1/26/2017 –
I just wanted to give everyone an update. So a year later, and my “amazing” $12 Greenhouse has finally come to an end. :,( This past weekend, we were hit with Flash Flood/Extremely High Winds and it totally just DESTROYED the poor thing. The sun had cracked the plastic about a month ago, and then the wind was the last straw for the sun-damaged plastic connector pieces. I walked in the back yard and everything was EVERYWHERE! So if I had to recommend anything to anyone. I would say, You get what you pay for. You pay only $12, you get a cute “decorative” greenhouse for about a year. You pay more, you get longer lasting products. But if you DO decide to buy this product, I STRONGLY suggest that you do not put ANYTHING breakable inside on the shelves, because more than likely, they WILL fall off and die. I learned that the hard way with my Mini Fairy Garden and my Terra Cotta Pots.
