Buying guide for a polycarbonate greenhouse
A polycarbonate greenhouse has many more advantages of any you buy that is metallic with a cover. For starters, it is much more robust and consistent, which makes it deteriorate much longer. And although it is much more expensive, it can be amortized easily. In addition, you are more likely to find them in different sizes, not only small or medium, but also large (or even personalized).
But, to buy a suitable one, you first need to take into account several important aspects such as:
It is the main thing because it will depend on the space you will have in your house or in your room to choose one or the other. As it is for plants, you have to see the number of them, or how much you want it to occupy to opt for some models or others.
While it is normal to find standard sizes, that is, either small or large, it is also easy to build them yourself by getting the materials that are needed for it. For this reason, it is important to know what space is available and thus be able to discard the ones you find in stores that do not serve you.
As for the form, this is also important. You can basically find them at horizontal format, but there are also polycarbonate greenhouses made in the form of furniture and others that are minis (for succulents and cacti, or for mini plants).
We come to the price. And we are not going to lie to you, it is expensive. Really expensive. But you should see it as an investment.
In addition, it will depend on the size of this so that it will be expensive. For example, if you want it for the garden, you could find a small one from 200 euros (or even less); but if you want it indoors, there is very suitable furniture for less than 50 euros (or in a fork of this type).
Where to buy?
In the absence of going out to the street for it (or going to the computer to search the stores to find the one you like the most and buy it, we wanted to be even more productive. And we have looked at the most sought-after stores and this is what you will find.
Here you find variety, but the results will not only give you polycarbonate greenhouses, but of many other types; so you will have to take a good look at the titles and descriptions to make sure that it is so.
To buy a polycarbonate greenhouse at Bauhaus you will have to go to the store, because They do not have it available online as stated on their page. But they do have three models, similar to each other, but with different sizes.
At Leroy Merlin we have had trouble finding polycarbonate greenhouses. Although they have a greenhouse section, the truth is that when you specify that search, none of them come up, so it is possible that, online, they do not have this. You can always ask in stores because they may have a catalog.
Finally, you would always have the option of buying a second-hand one. This way you can find the one that best suits you and have it for a more affordable price. Of course, check well before buying lest you find yourself with a problem in the end.
