    This greenhouse probably good for Sring, Summer and not to take the harsh Winter. So, around Fall just put it away during Winter. Please, America… Stop being lazy.

  2. Bob Lamb on September 20, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    We had a greenhouse similar (if not identical) to the one shown here and it only lasted about a week but that was because of some strong winds that came up before it was loaded down with plants, etc. I recovered the plastic with only minor damage but several of the frame pieces were bent or broken.

  3. chez moi on September 20, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    That’s sad, because it means your yard is polluted with plastic particles. Not good for the soil nor the critters. I hope you can clean them up well enough. MC is right, you and Grandpa Feral might be able to rig up something with polycarbonate panels in the future, which would have a much longer lifespan and is recyclable. To see the material, check out this, which just popped up in my notifications:

    Best things you can do is, buying some plastic sheets from Lowes of some sorts to cover it. You can cut it to fit ; the thicker the better. This only if you cannot reorder the original one.

  5. Zoa Langford on September 20, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    😻 I remember the first year.

  6. Tone Loc on September 20, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Thanks for posting this i was just going to buy one and now I know its not lasting….

  7. Lucky Ferals on September 20, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    UPDATE: The cover was replaced and the greenhouse is as good as new. I’ve been starting seedlings in it and also growing herbs and greens in it. Works great for that.

  8. Bill Randolph on September 20, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Net house! 😀

  9. Bear Indawoods on September 20, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I have had one like this for 10 years. 6Mil plastic in 100f x 20 f role. Use the old plastic as a pattern. Cut it out and clip on to the frame with bull clips. Make it a couple of inches bigger so it will over lap. Use a tube of clear NP-1 and put a small seam between the plastic sheets, and clip to the rails while sets up. It will remain flexible but will no come apart. Wait at least 24 hours before cutting in the door. Place a larger sheet over the front. Works well for me and I don’t have to spend money on something I know is never going to last any way. I still have plenty of plastic from the original roll. I just put it back in the box and put it in my basement and it has lasted.

  10. Paolo Ricci on September 20, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    did you take it down after the cold weather stopped?? if you leave it all year round it will not last,

  11. Unknown Stuntman on September 20, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Wonder if you cleaned all the old green plastic off. It’s possible to cover the whole thing in cling film . Big catering one should do it

  12. evilash3373 on September 20, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Cheap, foreign made garbage.

  13. Andre Demers on September 20, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Just a idea. What about removing the plastic for the winter. Have been doing this on all my greenhouses and have them now for over three years. These are not made for winter. I mean snow and ice.

  14. Marshmello Caterpillar on September 20, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    so sad that it literally pollutes the planet

  15. Debbra Lehrman on September 20, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    That sucks. StayWell. Love to the kitties.

  16. Plant Guru Gangsta on September 20, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    What climate are u in??? What brand is this? Not all brands sell replacement covers, trying to choose a good one.

  17. iceberg slimm on September 20, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    looks like cats clawed up the cover..cats are climbers. maybe this could have been an issue as well

  18. lbialk on September 20, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    If the seams and the green grid work was still good, you could probably just buy some 3 mil polyethylene sheets (not expensive) and cover right over top of the old cover.

  19. Tim Smith on September 20, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Isnt It interesting how we have all this plastic in the world that doesnt degrade but when you have something that you dont want to degrade or do so as quickly it does..

  20. magdalena hart on September 20, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Its just sad that it didn’t last longer, especially cause the plastic desintegrades into these small particles… huge environmental problem….

  21. Shawn-Marie Hale on September 20, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    I also purchased one and it only lasted one season. I put it up in November and it was destroyed by May. Less than 1 year. The sun dried out and cracked all the joints that held the poles together and the zipper ripped. It you just spend $50 and want to try out a greenhouse and see if this is a hobby you maybe interested in. Then go ahead and purchase one. Just don’t expect a long life. We are using the frame as a pattern and building our own greenhouse with PVC and UVresistant greenhouse plastic. I discovered I enjoyed the hobby and ready to move onto the "next step"

  22. Krane on September 20, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    That greenhouse is gone my dear. There’s nothing to salvage there. Just buy a new one

  23. Dward's Kitties on September 20, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Sad that things don’t last

  24. lastoftheurgents1965 on September 20, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    it was letting like rain in??? what? something like rain or just…rain?

  25. David H on September 20, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    I bought this a few years ago, still have it best greenhouse ever. only replaced the cover three times and the frame twice. Still original 😁

  26. Lisa Havekost on September 20, 2021 at 11:57 pm


  27. sccolamale1 on September 20, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    What kind of Christmas lights? Did they warm enough at night during the dead of winter?

  28. Antiques & Collectibles on September 20, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Hello, do you have any proven solutions for heat management? That is stopping this type of greenhouse getting too hot.

  29. S A on September 20, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    One of the best, honest reviews. Thank you

  30. Owl Poodle on September 21, 2021 at 12:00 am

    I recently purchased one and saw a replacement cover for sale too, I think on E-bay.

  31. Susan Hebert on September 21, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Where do you get a replacement cover?

  32. Yolanda Ruiz on September 21, 2021 at 12:02 am

    If you cant find another cover for it, you can make a pattern out of the old one, and with the clear plastic they sell at the dollar store, cut out the shapes that fit around it or even glue it onto the existing one. I luv your babies,and enjoy your videos. Stay safe, healthy and happy Mama LF!

  33. Stephanie Perdue on September 21, 2021 at 12:02 am

    I just out one of those up last weekend. As long as the frame holds up I will be happy. The cover can be replaced.

  34. Willa Johnson on September 21, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Go to walmart or lowes and buy a roll of clear plastic to put over the top to prevent this, also helps keep heat in.. Mine did the same thing. I have a cheap tarp from Big Lots over the top of my new one now that leaves and limbs and hard rain is with us.

  35. josn1053 on September 21, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Will this mini greenhouse protect the potted plants when temperature goes down to 30’f ? I just want to use it to protect my potted plants when the temp goes down to freezing temp and then take the out the next day. Will this be good for that? Thanks

  36. T Buttercup on September 21, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Can you cover it up during winter with a tarp?

  37. GreyDeathOne on September 21, 2021 at 12:06 am

    What state are you in? I am in Northern California and it gets hot in the summer and want to see if your in the same zone as I am and I know plastic like that will break down faster in my heat.

  38. M C on September 21, 2021 at 12:07 am

    You can possibly buy transparent Perspex panels and attach to the framework. It may cost more but you can use what’s left of it.

  39. Ian Borland on September 21, 2021 at 12:08 am

    (thanks) 2021 in the UK and I just bought one for about twice the price, looks like the same sort of kit though.
    Disappointing that it deteriorated so quickly. I’m hoping that our sun isn’t as harsh as your location, but in any case, I think our harsh Winters & high winds are going to be tough on my "tent".

    I had a little one and it didn’t last, so, to be fair, I wasn’t optimistic, but I figured at that price I could live with it being ‘temporary’ to see if I will actually be capable of using/manging a greenhouse properly enough before I invest in a real one.

    I had built a glass & aluminium greenhouse at a previous house and, sadly, although I went to a lot of trouble to ensure the base was level and concreted into place – I missed one very important thing: The corners needed to be square.
    (of course they do! – silly me!)
    Consequently it wasn’t till I was fitting the very last pane of glass that I realised I had made the base a parallelogram, so there was a gap. The whole thing wasn’t truly squared off at 90 degrees.
    So, the wind got in that tiny little triangular sliver of space and it was a losing battle as it took out one pane after another till I decided it was a lost cause and opted to knock it down and bury it where it stood.
    I was gutted, because I’d always wanted my own greenhouse and I’d worked so hard and spent so much money on it. Things were starting to grow too.
    Months later, I paid a guy to help me do some garden work, and, when I was out one day, he dug up the greenhouse, thinking he was doing me a favour, so now I had all this broken glass and an aluminium frame to get rid of. :(((

    I figure if I get a year out of the plastic one, then I’ll be a happy bunny, but I read some reviews and, once again, the wind is my biggest fear.
    As for re-covering it, I will check for replacement covers, and research ‘spray-on’ solutions, but I’m wondering if certain types of plastic block UV light.
    I’ve found some wonderful stuff for taping over my inside home windows as "Triple Glazing" (which you can google) and it is marvellous stuff, because you secure it into place with tape – then heat it with a hair dryer (or warm air heater) and it shrinks taut and looks fantastic, it goes tight as a drum and the finish is superb. I put it on all my windows and save a fortune in heating bills.
    Only thing is it says somewhere "helps prevent furniture & carpet fading – because it cuts down UV light".
    However, if my cover starts to disintegrate to just the green mesh – I might try this stuff as a cheap fix.

    I’ve always wondered if I could cut up plastic drinks bottles (cut off top & bottom, slice lengthways and unroll, then iron flat) and glue or join them somehow as a cheap ‘glazing’ solution.
    What I am actually thinking of is attempting to create a "Geodesic Dome" by making lots of panels that will fit together with wing nuts.
    The ‘plan’ (ha-ha-ha "plan" LoL) is to figure out how to make 5 sided panels indoors as a DIY project basically in my spare time – like knitting squares to make a quilt. Then have a stack of them I can assemble to make the dome in the spring.

    Remembering my small one, I’m also thinking maybe giving the frame a coat of tough paint might also help, because the original paint just flaked off, then the tubes got rusty and it is basically going to be some spare shelving for my walk in plastic greenhouse or I will have to throw it away.

    I’d rather have paid a bit more and got a product that might last than have bought a "disposable" greenhouse in today’s world when resources are at a premium it doesn’t make sense to "Buy Cheap – Buy Twice" as my old Boss always used to say.

    Shame, because I’ve started loads of seeds and was really looking forward to erecting my new greenhouse tomorrow, so that has kind of disheartened me.
    Nevertheless, I’m a realist and, while I hope for the best – I like to understand the worst case scenario and be prepared.
    So, thanks for taking the trouble to share.

  40. Heather Loves Deuteronomy on September 21, 2021 at 12:08 am

    I’ve actually seen this same greenhouse recently listed for (sit down) $400!!! Crazy!

  41. Jane Doe on September 21, 2021 at 12:09 am

    I recently lined mine with some shade cloth as the sun in Australia can be intensely hot even in spring!

  42. TheFunkadelicFan on September 21, 2021 at 12:11 am

    I’ve just bought this greenhouse.

  43. David on September 21, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Why would you leave a cheap greenhouse up like that all year long. Take it down after the growing season and it will last a lot longer.

  44. s andy on September 21, 2021 at 12:12 am

    i have same issue starting with my two smaller ones covering raised beds. this is only 2nd season, it was stored 6months. $89 each, i had hoped for long use, but now that i see your video, perhaps i can figure out a solution before next season. thank you

  45. RainSunBloom on September 21, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Tip: Before purchasing one of these temporary greenhouses, check with vendor to see if they have cover placements. If the cover is cheaper than replacing the entire greenhouse, and most of the times it is…may want to go with that vendor instead.
    UPDATE: Just noticed your comment about you replacing your cover. Awesome!

  46. Adrian Kap on September 21, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Just a thought but there’s a somewhat clear/opaque Flexseal spray I found at Home Depot/Lowes. If I sprayed it on while it’s new, would that help in it lasting longer? Anyone know anything about that idea?

  47. Diana Ellul on September 21, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I think if you fold those things up and put them away you’d just find them degraded when you unfold them anyway. Not worth the money.

  48. Cary Ryan Chauvet on September 21, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I’ve had these greenhouses for a number of years and yes, the plastic will disintegrate with time. Buy a new cover. OR put out $2-4,000 for the same size greenhouse made of cedar wood and glass. I replace my covers every year and the cost is generally $20 to $30 per cover.

  49. Laura Moore on September 21, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Thank you so much! I am just starting out and doing research on how to start seedlings and not take over my house

  50. Bradwick1 on September 21, 2021 at 12:16 am

    That platic is just crazy hideous to a place where plants are meant to grow. This company really profited at $80 avg by using 50 cent plastic. Shop vac the rest of it off the cover before taking the cover off.
    Just an idea if there is a new cover in the future, coat the outside with a UV blocking spray. But then the plants may not get the full light spectrum they might need. Maybe it will last 2 1/2 seasons. Id guess they expect it to be taken down before summer.
