Rhino Greenhouse

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.
