    Aldi have this with free standard delivery - but only one left online! Form a queue!
    Whether they're in store, I don't know!

    Can't remember the make of my first one. It's still up and I haven't had that plot for 2 years.

    Next 2 weren't as robust though

    Argos. I have the £40 walk in one, it's quite sturdy and can beef up the supports if needed but it's lasted winter in the garden, only taking down to replace with glass GH

    The ones with green covers are generally more robust I think, the totally clear covers are very weak in my experience. I make sure any blowaway is well anchored, in my case I cut holes in the cover, fed strong cable ties through and secured it to a fence. I reinforced the holes with clear repair tape.

    I didn't want a green one in my back yard though, as it doesn't get too much sun, I wanted to maximise the light so I got a clear blowaway 'growbag greenhouse', and bought a 20m roll of clear reinforcing tape. I spend a few hours reinforcing every seam with the clear tape, and finally stapled all the way along the edges of the zip, as they can break along there too. So far it's withstood 60-70mph winds that had my last blowaway tearing and flying across the yard.

    Here's the one I've got: Mini Outdoor Garden Plant Greenhouse Tomato Growbag Growhouse With PVC Cover | eBay

    Along with this roll of tape (which uis great stuff): Extra Strong Polytunnel / Greenhouse Repair Tape | Polythene | Clear 38mm x 20m | eBay

    I've got a couple of tube heaters in it to keep my Jalapeno and sweet peppers happy, they went out in it about three weeks ago now. I have got a wireless thermometer in there too so I can rescue them if it gets too cold, so far no problem down to about 2 Celsius.
