How long will mine plastic greenhouse last? It is one of the larger models, has a sturdy frame and is wedged between shed and house wall - I had to tilt shed and slide it in then let shed drop back down so there is no room for it to breathe let alone blow LOL.flower

.....I am feeling optimistic, I will go for 2 years. tongue

Have you reinforced the roof at all? That's more likely to fail than the wind kill it, especially if water pools.

Yes, I thought about the rain on the roof, but no way of reinforcing it really.

Ha yeah, I googled! Very Happy 

That would be good to use when the plastic has gone, i imagine the frame would still be useable.

Ha ha Maitch.

Length 187cms, Height 185cms and 121cm width, bought it off one of my brothers 3 years ago but never used it because my back garden was too exposed, now at my mums it is totally protected. Just found it on Argos website...

So its about 6' x 4'?

You could probably get some twinwall for under £20 to put over the roof, which would make the greenhouse cover last longer.

6' x 4' Alright smart arse. Laughing  And to think I went and had a look on the instructions tsk. Funny you should mention the twin wall, when my Dad was alive he knocked up a greenhouse type structure made of the stuff in the exact same place, not for use as a greenhouse, more as a cheap/easy storage structure.

I'd say that will last a couple of seasons and the only problem will be the fasteners to the door/flap, the coverings are really strong,  An Poll - How Long Will It Last... 709307421

Already the roof has been holding water so need to keep my eye on it, a smaller one would have been better LOL. Laughing

TBH I'm not sure if I need to take this one out and put a smaller one in the gap between shed and wall, as there isn't really enough room for the rainwater to disperse. I need to have an think. Thanks a lot! Smile
