In first place we have Waltons. Now Waltons have a great selection of greenhouses that make use of polycarbonate panels, which is great if you do not want something made from glass standing in your garden. As well as having what we would class as a traditional type of greenhouse, they also have some cheaper, more unconventional  more...

greenhouses made from a type of plastic sheeting that cost well under £100. We feel this would be a great way to try your hand at gardening or even give yourself an extra bit of space to grow things. We love how they have things like this mixed in with larger and more expensive plastic greenhouses. The info they give for each one and the amount of pictures is just ideal and in all this really is the first site you need to look at when you are searching for a plastic based greenhouse.

Buy Sheds Direct have a very large selection of greenhouses for you to look at. They do put all their greenhouses in the one section, but we just love the amount of choice you have here. They have polycarbonate based greenhouses that are supported with aluminium, resin and even wooden frames which we thought was really cool. They  more...

do have a good selection of lower priced and more high end plastic greenhouses which we liked to see. Most of the greenhouses that we looked at had multiple photos as well as a good description so this was a very user friendly site to have a look around.

The reason that we really liked what Taylors Garden Buildings was offering was because they specialise in Eazi Click greenhouses. These are polycarbonate based greenhouses that are made to be much easier to put together. They are the only plastic greenhouse retailer who actually have these greenhouses in their very own section. The overall  more...

greenhouse selection on Taylors Garden Buildings may be a little bit busy for some of you, but if you do take the time to comb through their vast selection of greenhouses, then we are sure you will find that perfect plastic greenhouse for you. One thing to watch for is that many of the greenhouses they have only have one photo to showcase them – we really would have liked to have seen a few more photos used, especially for the more expensive greenhouses.

At first you are going to be blown away by the greenhouse selection that Shed Store has and with good reason too, as it is really is quite incredible. But they do lump everything together into one section and their options for narrowing them down to specific categories do not make it easy to put all the plastic based greenhouses together. Still even  more...

with this minor complaint, this site has some fantastic, polycarbonate based greenhouses that will be perfect for growing your vegetables and taking care of your plants. Multiple pictures and easy to follow descriptions make this a site that would be great for a first time buyer as you get all the info you need.

When it comes to plastic greenhouses, Sheds.co.uk do not have the largest selection. As a matter of fact they only have a couple, so you may be asking yourself why have we put them in our top five? Well that is because they have this tremendous line of white plastic greenhouses that are of a very high quality and interesting design  more...

that we have not seen anywhere else. Now these are on the high priced side, but for those of you who are serious about your gardening and only want the very best, then Sheds.co.uk do have some of the most impressive plastic greenhouses of anyone on this list. We really like how they show them off with a few photos and also give detailed descriptions of each greenhouse. Which is good as if you are spending this kind of money you want to know exactly what you are getting.

Here we have Homebase – now the reason that we have placed Homebase here is that they are the best plastic greenhouse retailer when it comes to budget priced plastic greenhouses. They of course have more elaborate greenhouses with thick polycarbonate panels, but they also have a series of low priced plastic greenhouses that may be a lot  more...

more basic in their design, but we feel are perfect for a person new to this kind of thing. So someone looking for just a little extra growing space and who does not want to spend any more than £50. With plenty of pictures and a descriptions that are easy to follow, Homebase is by far the site that surprised us the most on this list.

B&Q have plenty of polycarbonate based greenhouses, but they do also have two actual plastic greenhouses which are very low priced. One is even a walk in greenhouse that still costs under £50. So much like Homebase, B&Q is a site to use if you want to spend as little money as possible on a greenhouse. The descriptions that they give and  more...

the amount of photos is fine, but we had to rank them lower than Homebase as their selection was not as good. Still if a cheap greenhouse is what you are after then we do recommend that you have a look at the ones that are on offer here.

Wickes do actually have a very decent amount of polycarbonate based greenhouses that have a strong aluminium frame and this is something we really like. The site is easy to use and we found the descriptions to be mainly jargon free, so they are easy to follow. The reason though that we have placed them here is that they do not really have any lower  more...

priced greenhouses. We feel that the site really could have had a few cheaper plastic greenhouses like B&Q are offering.

Gardens Buildings Direct being so low is sure to surprise many of you, as they regularly crack the top three on our top ten lists, but the reason we have ranked them here is because while they do actually have a plastic greenhouse section on their site, it is totally empty! But they do actually have many polycarbonate based greenhouses that we  more...

feel they could have placed here, even if they do have a metal frame. The way they have left this section empty may lead to many people just closing the site and looking elsewhere, even though they do have a great selection of polycarbonate greenhouses on their site. So while you can get a truly incredible, polycarbonate based greenhouse here, you will have to do a little clicking around to find it.

Sheds World usually have a pretty straightforward site to navigate, but when it comes to plastic greenhouses they do not actually have a section dedicated to them. This means that you will have to look through all their greenhouse sections to find the right one for you. They do have a section dedicated to greenhouses with plastic glazing, but  more...

we would have liked to have seen a section specifically for plastic framed greenhouses. If a plastic greenhouse is what you have your heart set on then we would advise that you look elsewhere.
