1 1/2 years of non-stop use & I can't imagine not having it

What made you get a Planta Greenhouse?
It seemed like the best product for the money. I was also able to pick the kit up in person from the warehouse saving me the shipping costs.

What competitors did you consider before purchasing from Planta Greenhouses?
I don't remember specifically, but did review a number of products.

Why did you choose to buy from Planta Greenhouses?
I was able to speak in person with the owner with a couple of questions and the personal approach really helped.

What do you grow inside your greenhouse?
One side of the greenhouse is a "garden bed" where in the winter months I grow hardy greens. In the early spring, I plant a few tomato plants, eggplant and peppers, along with some marigolds to attract pollinators into the structure. Later in the spring, I seed a trellis of cucumbers. The other side of the greenhouse is where I start all my vegetable and flower seedlings, very early in the season a few under lights (my location gets a little shady mid December through early February). I don't heat the structure, but employ heating mats. I also move a few overwintered (in the house) huge blooming geraniums in pots for color and scent.

How did your Planta Greenhouse improve your gardening experience?
I absolutely love having so much fresh, organic food year round! The hardy greens take off tremendously in the very early spring, I can't keep up with them. Additionally the extended season (early and late) of tomatoes and other tender veggies is fantastic. Having the tomatoes inside a structure also kept the blight off the plants, an additional benefit. Although I've grown my own seedlings under lights in the house for many years, the greenhouse seedlings are much hardier. There is plenty of space for everything that I want to start.

What was your experience like buying from Planta Greenhouses? (was it easy to buy? How was customer service? etc)
This company really had great customer service, during all phases of the project including helping me when I got stuck with the construction.

What's your favourite thing about the Planta Greenhouse?
After 1 1/2 years of non-stop use, I can't imagine not having it. The design really works well for my tall, 6'2" frame.

What would you say to a person considering purchasing a Planta Greenhouse?
Be prepared for considerable time/effort in the construction phase. The company's claim that this can be done very quickly is somewhat misleading. Also, this is truly not a portable structure, once erected it will need to remain in place, mostly because many of the screws have rusted. Also, be prepared to slightly modify things as you find the need, but the way it is constructed allows easily for that.

Anything else you’d like to add?
This really is a wonderful addition to my extensive gardens and food production!
