    My wife loves it. The two of us put it up together in October, it took about three 8 hour days but one day was partly getting the ground ready. Pretty easy if you just follow the videos online. Installed the self opening windows this spring and everything is working great. Couldn’t be happier. Highly recommend

    Thanks Planta greenhouse!

    I really appreciate having the greenhouse. It was a challenge to assemble, but very rewarding after completion. I planted from seeds and within 3 days, radish had popped up and within 1 week cucumber also came up from seeds. Now everything is growing with gusto and I have received so many compliments on the greenhouse. It has only been finished for 2 weeks and it's the end of August 2023. Thanks Planta greenhouse!

    Mostly positive.

    A handle was set for the wrong side and the tape for sealing does not stick well.

    The stability of the greenhouse is really good even in the wind

    We installed our greenhouse in 2021 and right now we are starting the new garden for 2022, so we’re growing seeds and other plans that can’t handle the cold. I believe it will add to the times we can grow. With the heater we bought with the greenhouse we should be able to grow year round. The stability of the greenhouse is really good even in the wind. And we had snow just this week (February) and it is holding up perfectly.

    My buying experience from Planta was good. It was challenging but rewarding to work through the instructions and also follow online video instructions for putting the greenhouse together. I’d recommend using both the paper manuals and online step by step videos when putting it together. If possible, have more than one person to construct the greenhouse. I was able to do it by myself but I’m sure it took quite a bit longer.

FAQs

Residential Greenhouses

Are there doors on both ends of the greenhouse?

Yes! All of our Sungrow models come with manual doors and a manual window above the door on both ends of the greenhouse.

Do you have lean-to greenhouses?

Unfortunately, we do not have any lean-to greenhouses available at this time.

Do you make custom size greenhouses?

All of our products come pre-packaged by the manufacturer and can only be customized in length (2m extension). However, the height of the greenhouse can also be increased if placed on a base (up to 1.5m above the ground).

How is the greenhouse anchored to the ground?

Every greenhouse kit comes with optional legs that can be dug directly into the ground. The amount of legs included depends on the greenhouse size.

What is the frame made of?

The greenhouse frame is made out of heavy-duty galvanized steel.

What is the width of the door opening?

For our Sungrow models, the door opening width is 800mm.

What polycarbonate panels are used for residential greenhouses?

We use 6mm heavy-duty, double-walled polycarbonate panels with a UV-protected outside layer for our Residential Greenhouses.

What type of base/foundation is the best for me?

There are several different types of greenhouse bases, information, and pictures posted by our customers on our Customer Stories page and our Planta Facebook page. Additionally, you can learn more about "Types of Greenhouse Bases - With Pros & Cons of Each" on our blog.

FAQs Sigma ventilation window

Can I add windows for my greenhouse later?

Roof ventilation windows work as an add-on and can be installed only once the greenhouse installation is complete. Windows can be added later as well.

How many roof ventilation windows are recommended for the greenhouse?

It is strongly recommended to go with an even amount of roof ventilation windows. This is so you can place at least one on either side of the greenhouse. The amount of windows required depends on the greenhouse size, the climate you are in, and the types of plants that will be grown inside the greenhouse.

FAQs Sigma automatic ventilation window

How do the Automatic Ventilation Windows work?

Our Automatic Ventilation Windows do not require any batteries or electricity. A heat-activated mechanism will open/close the window once a certain temperature is reached.

What are the opening and maximum opening temperatures for the Automatic Windows?

The opening temperature is between 17 °C and 25°C, while the maximum opening is at 30 °C.

Sigma Greenhouses

What are the snow load and wind resistance on the Sigma models?

Sigma models can hold a snow load weight of 160 kg / m2 or 91cm of fresh snow on top of the greenhouse. The wind resistance is 100km/h.

Sigma Installation

Is there support post-purchase?

Absolutely! Our after-sales customer service team is available to answer any and every question. You can fill out our contact form or give us a call at 1 (877) 669-1286.

To better understand the different options available, you can find several different types of greenhouse bases, information, and pictures posted by Planta Greenhouse owners on our Customer Stories page and our Planta Facebook page. Additionally, you can learn more about it on our Greenhouse Bases blog.

Customization Options

Can I add my own vents, fans, heaters, and lights?

Of course! The polycarbonate is very easy to work with, and the galvanized steel frame is strong enough to support any additional accessories.

Can I get a longer greenhouse?

Most of our residential and commercial greenhouses are extendable up to 30 metres. Learn more about our extension kits for both the Sungrow and Sigma models.

How can I customize my greenhouse?

The customization possibilities are truly endless with a Planta Greenhouse. To help you get started, take a look through “16 Ways to Supercharge Your Greenhouse” on our blog.

Is hanging plants, heaters, and hammocks safe from my greenhouse frame? How much weight does it handle without affecting the guarantee?

It is safe to hang plants and accessories on a Sungrow greenhouse since each internal reinforcement arch can withstand up to 45.3 Kg. On the Sigma series, you can pre-drill the holes on the framing and hang small things. We would not suggest hanging anything heavier than 2.2 – 4.5 Kg per arch.

May I heat my greenhouse with firepits or similar?

You can use any heating source inside, like electricity, gas, propane, and even wood. It may be tricky to heat with wood, as you want to ensure that you keep the stove/pit away from the panels to prevent them from melting or burning if they are too close to the fire source. In this case, the customers ideally would want to come up with an exhaust system, making sure it’s not in contact with the panels, for being a flammable material.
