I ordered a 10x20 abba greenhouse.  I had one about 10 years ago and that same greenhouse is still performing like a champ (gave it up in a divorce).


I want another one so I ordered it and the shipping company (Pilot shipping) botched the delivery twice.  In the meantime I am reading more reviews and it appears that there are a GREAT MANY bad reviews with in the ltwo years  Including pictures of deteriorating fabric etc. I am concerned that possibly the product is not as good as it once was.


Can anyone recommend a good, durable, greenhouse kit to purchase?   I want plastic film as I feel that it stands up to our winds better than plastic panels.

And..... has anyone bought the abba brand in the last couple of years?  If so how is it holding up?

I am looking at a 9' x 20' at both farmtek and of course amazon.  It will be a while before I have to make my choice.  It is on the TODOLIST.

Farmtek/clearspan kits are awesome. 7 or 11 year warranty on the cover... cant remember.

Frame and hardware are good. Door and end wall kits are good (had rust on latch hardware after one season though). Cover is tough. Woven or film.

Just about any size. Hreat site to explore. We sourced and built one for a client. Great materials.
