    Default Assembly instructions for 6 x 4 x 5ft walk in plastic greenhouse?

    Hi all

    Bit of a long shot perhaps, but just wondering if someone can help. I've inherited a plastic greenhouse, apparently walk in with shelves and dimensions as above. However, I don't have any assembly instructions for it, and I can't find a maker's name or anything to try and get instructions from the manufacturer. I did have a look on google, but couldn't find anything helpful. It has a thick plastic cover with green grid pattern reinforcing bits. Does anyone happen to have some sort of instructions to put this together? At the moment I've just got lots of poles of different lengths, a cover, lots of jointy pieces and some wire shelves. Just knowing which size poles should go in which part of the GH would be a big help, I can probably figure out the rest...

    Many thanks in advance,

    Giles

    Don't you just slot the poles together, then place a shelf on top?

    I have the small plastic ones, and there are only 2 lengths of poles: the longer ones are horizontal and the shorter ones are verticals. Of course, yours may be more complex

    Thanks.

    Technically yes, you do slot the poles together and put shelves on top (I've got one of the small plastic greenhouses too) but this one is bigger and walk in, so it has shelves on either side of the main entrance. It has lots of different length and shape of poles, and I don't want to manage to get it all together only to find I've used the diagonal apex poles for the bottom vertical section or something!

    Is it anything like the Gardman do you think? Does this photo help at all?

    Ah hah! Possibly. When I put the cover over my head, it seemed to be more of a normal greenhouse shape - long and rectangular. That said, I think I see some oddly shaped poles in the gardman picture that I have in my box of bits. And the number of shelves and green cris-crossed cover match too.

    I'll have another look at it tomorrow with a print out of that pic and see if I can make more sense of it. Many thanks indeed

    There are 1 or 2 here that may help with your dilemma.

    Cut out the middle man - chuck the cover over your neighbours fence a couple of doors down and bend and break the poles so they fit neatly in your bin

    Have you got these? Without them it could be a problem!
