This is a really great idea and cute mini-greenhouse, but it was frustrating to assemble. The instructions were not entirely correct and the diagrams did not always match up to the actual wood pieces that were shipped. For example, screws placed on the front of the unit blocked your ability to attach the door frame. One of the hinges was put on backwards, so I had to take it off, drill new holes, and put it back on correctly. Lastly, multiple pieces of wood had small splits from holes being pre-drilled in.
The craftsmanship was disappointing for the price. Once I made necessary changes including buying braces to complete the door frame so it would attach properly, I was content with the final build.
Please update your instructions and check the quality control on the pieces. Ultimately it's a good greenhouse, but could use improvements.
First the good:
Great size, arrived quickly, customer service was friendly and responded quickly
Now the issues:
It didn’t come together as expected- the instructions plus the pre-drilled holes left big gaps as the back piece was 1/2 inch too tall. Was missing screws, and replacement screws were also wrong.
Customer service gave me the vendor contact but the vendor never responded.
Some of the wood had knot holes so it’s not as sturdy.
Some pre-assembled pieces were cracked where the screws went in
However, I modified some of the pieces by drilling new holes and buying new screws, and was able to make it work ok. For the price, I would have expected better quality out of the box.
All that being said, I’m excited to try it out!
A must-have for starting lots of seedlings in a protective environment! I start 90% of the seedlings I raise in modules in a mini greenhouse, as the shelves are a fantastic way of maximising how much can be grown in a small area. In the same way a skyscraper has many floors to squeeze as much as possible on a single piece of land, this mini greenhouse allows you to at least triple the number of seedlings you can raise in a couple of square feet. It is very easy to assemble - all you need is a drill - and makes a smart statement for any garden, and the lid is also at an angle to help quickly warm up your seedlings during the day.
