    Need to get a 6 x 6, 6 x 8, or 8 x 8 GH

    Hey TF,

    Im need to get a glass small-ish greenhouse. DIYing is fine, i just need to find a cheap one. Im on a budget. Dont need any fancy vents and stuff. Just a glass GH with a real door.

    Thanks for any tips!

    I didn't know greenhouse and cheap could be used in the same sentence! LOL I dont know how much you can spend but here is a fairly cheap one.

    Does it "have" to be glass? Ebay has really nice deals if you look up greenhouses, usually the shipping is even free and on a 10' x 16' greenhouse that could mean a big savings! Some Ebay ads appear to be much better/bigger setups than the kits at garden centers around here (only 6' x 8' usually). If only I had some land I'd have a couple GHs, probably more than a couple before long!

    If you like to do DIY there are good books out there on building your own. Ortho published a book on Greenhouses which shows the construction of a number of interesting styles from wood, glass and or brick. Instead of glass I would buy 4' x 8' polycarbonate sheet which allows light but is like clear corrugated cardboard so it has a bit of insulating power but insulating from cold probably won't matter for you out in CA. Though the poly sheeting is far cheaper.

    Definitely don't see you finding a cheap glass greenhouse any time soon after poking about the internet.

    Haha, you italicized glass, so I figured you really meant glass.

    If you're looking for polycarbonate, there are a few nicely priced ones on the ebay

    Shipping is definitely a killer.

    Why don't you need fancy vents and stuff; are you planning to roast the plants? Greenhouses can be tempermental beasts and you should check with others who have them in your area to see how they do it. It's a rare greenhouse that doesn't need some fancy stuff.
