Hello everyone, I recently bought a small plastic greenhouse. I read lots of posts about how they get blown about in the wind, so I've anchored it securely. But I've observed that my plants don't get much sunlight in there. The plastic is a greenish one. Is that going to be bad for my plants or will they grow alright in there? Any help will be much appreciated, thanks in advance

Something that's around 8 feet tall, 6 feet across and maybe 3 feet wide?

Hi everyone, I'm thinking of buying a small greenhouse, the one with the shelves inside (that actually looks like a cupboard). I would have loved a bigger one, but I'm pinched on space. I looked around online, but there are so many options it's mind boggling! Can anyone please give me some suggestions on what to buy? Any input wound be most appreciated!

Thanks Dovefromabove, I'll read the link, but keep them inside My precious you know, the beetroots and carrots that i had left outside in the hail survived  But you were right, the tomatoes and aubergines didnt make it, so i sowed them inside this time and have a lot of little plants on the window sill
