Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse – Our first impressions
The Rion Grand green coloured greenhouse is a fantastic choice for the growing enthusiast. It is a great size which means it is spacious enough to grow plants, vegetables and flowers of varying size. The structure is such that it is able to trap heat so you can even grow exotic plants that are not available normally in the UK. Constructed from 4mm polycarbonate glazing with a thick resin frame and with special UV protection against harmful rays this is a superb product at a very reasonable price. Your plants and vegetables will no doubt flourish. With a height of 8ft the greenhouse interior has a spacious feel, with the added advantage of being able to grown tall plants with ease. Internal freestanding shelving can be added to have numerous projects, flower, plants and vegetables organised into sections and levels. Due to the warm temperatures created by the greenhouse you will be able to grow exotic plants, flowers and vegetables that would have been previously impossible in the typical British climate.
