Rhino Greenhouse

Posted: 25/04/2014 at 12:28

I had a Rhino at my previous house, they are very strong , certainly the best I have seen, I put mine up on my own , only help I had was with the ridge.

The instructions were OK but not fantastic but I believe they offer phone or online support if you have any problems.

Pricey but I believe you get what you pay for.

How do irises flower?

Sounds too shady for Hemerocallis also, they need at least 6 hrs sun a day to perform well.

Which Growbag ?

I always use the Levington giant tomato growbags along with growpots, gives plenty of depth that way.
