  • 10 x12 harbor freight greenhouse on sale

    The 10x12 harbor freight greenhouse is on sale this week for $599 with coupon. While I know this might be the best greenhouse on the market, is it worth the money? Regular retail is $899. Does anyone have any experience with this product? Thanks

    Dave,

    I have seen a couple of them and they are not bad. If you live in a spot with a lot of wind I would reinforce the panels to prevent blowout.
    Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

      Thanks Wills, I have seen several videos on u tube that offered reinforcements for this model. They were within my abilities. For the price of taking a large family out to dinner,, I'm giving it some serious thought.

    Dave, I have the 6x8 one. It's not the best size to buffer temp extremes but it's helped enough with small projects to keep around. I've watched some youtube videos of these greenhouses framed out and with shelves added, too. I think I've had mine for over 2 years without anything added and it's survived Maryland snow and the wind just fine.

      There was someone on the other forum that had issues with snow load. You may want to at least reinforce the roof and the panels like Wills said.

      Here's a link or two from the other forum:
