Got our 1st greenhouse!!

Hi All,
We finally got a greenhouse (sort of). It's actually a used GardenMart 2000 21X66. Our local Wal-Mart decided they were tired of killing plants and wanted to get rid of what they had. We got it for $1600 and got a 21X30 for $800. They came with everything (full shelving, brackets, 600 concrete blocks, even plastic trays to hold pots). I know we'll have to some mods to make it work. We've been looking for a long time and by being patient it fell into our laps. Can't wait to get it up and running.

You will enjoy it once it's assembled! Nice find!

RE: Got our 1st greenhouse!!

Hi Jake! Great bargains! I too, have a GardenMart frame. 21x30. We haven't built it yet, we only have the metal framing. So I'm reading anything and everything I can get my hands on before we put it up. Placement, plastic?, shelves? heat?, questions, questions, questions. I'm concerned that it may be too tall, but then again, never had one before and know nothing about it. Any info would be appreciated. Thx.

Hi regina,

We like ours, we placed ours east-west and have a single layer of 6 mil poly on it. I like the height, it allows for the higher side openings. Granted it makes heating a much tougher prospect. We want to try growing tomatoes, peppers, and cukes in there during summer. Our problem will be keeping it from getting too hot. We have some fans but they won't be enough, we're looking into shade cloth. We like the shelving, and it is heavy duty.

Congratulations. That's about $15,000 worth of greenhouses when purchased new!
