Rion Hobby Gardener 2 8'X8'
Bought this in 2005. I would hightly reccomend it. Started to show some uv degradation about 10 years later. In March of 2019 we had a hail storm with up to golf ball size hail which broke several of the panels out on the roof. I attribute that to the uv degradation. Over 14 years this little greenhouse withstood winds up to 60 mph. It did withstand a hail storm in 2008 with hail stone of about a quarter size. The panels are pricey enough that I will not try to repair it but convert it to a shed of some sort. My opinion is that you can't go wrong by purchasing this little gem
Solid Little Building
Second Season. We live in a very windy area, Lethbridge, Alberta. Site will only give US areas. We are an hour from Montana border so... We get winds up to 50-60 mph. I had to silicone in a couple of panels on the west wind side but no problem since I did that. I would like to have more options for venting as it does get too hot. Looking into constructing something myself. Will make a vent fit somehow and might buy some sun screen. Bigger would be better, we have 8x8, but we only have so much space.
So so Greenhouse
I've owned a Rion 6X12 now for five years. The plastic is very weathered and getting brittle. It held up well for two years but now is leaking in several places. I have considered taking it apart and refurbishing but the replacement parts would be too expensive. The greenhouse is setup on a level concrete pad.
Mine blew apart in the recent tropical storm here in Georgia. It never fit together right and the vent windows BOTH broke in the wind. Junk. And replacement parts are expensive for this Israeli made greenhouse.
I have had this greenhouse (6'6 wide by 8'6 long) for about 12 years. It has held up very well through both hurricanes and blizzards. My only regret is that I did not buy a bigger one.
jury is still out
Haven't been able to set it up yet because we are under 18 of snow. I have been able to assemble the base so I could get an accurate measurement for my foundation and found the directions are sometimes lacking , they are easier if you take your time to figure it out. After all , it's not a race. I do recommend one inventory the parts. I was missing one piece from one box. Contacted the company via email and had the part within several days. Packaging is good but recommend better protection for polycarbonate.
