getting close to getting a GH.. leaning towards Freedom Greenhouse.. Looking for your expert input....What do ya think..? The self tending is a must its for Dh who has memory/medical issues he likes to garden with me but has killed more plants with water or vent or close vents then I care to recall...

"The innovative design of our Freedom line of backyard greenhouses results in a totally self-contained, self-tending greenhouse which requires no additional power supply to maintain temperature and watering systems. The easily maintained Freedom Greenhouse is perfect for the household that does not have a gardener home at all times, but still wants to have healthy and vigorous plants.

Automatic ventilation controlled by a thermostat. One side of roof lifts off the frame drawing cooler air in, while hot air escapes through the roof peak.
A manually controlled roof option is also available.
With our automatic version no external power supply needed. A 12v battery and solar charger power the roof opening mechanism and the automatic Q-Wick watering benches.
Automatic watering benches are available.
Manufactured in Maine with eastern white cedar and triple-wall polycarbonate."

I like the concept of this greenhouse but from my experience wood is a high maintenance product to use in a greenhouse. High humidity and moisture are not friends to wood products. I elected to go with an all aluminum frame, stainless steel hardware and 8-10mm carbonate panels.

My 8 year old cedar/polycarbonate kit greenhouse still looks good and functions very well.

Gary, you may not be a typical GH owner. ;-)

Robert- I'll take that as a good thing....

Ontheteam- My 10 X 14 gh is from a co. in British Columbia. I am in the sierra foothills of California. I use it to grow vegetables inside, as well as propagating ornamentals for planting outside. It has a 1500 W electric heater and about 400 gallons of water storage under the bench on one side. Gary
