Snap & Grow Greenhouse

mantismanSeptember 4, 2010

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and need some advice on a greenhouse to overwinter our tropicals. I'm in Central Texas and our winters are usually pretty mild. The greenhouse would be located on the south side of the house.

I'm considering the Snap & Grow 6x12. I really don't have room to go any wider than 6 feet and this one fits the budget. Does anyone have a Snap & Grow greenhouse or have any information on them?

In looking at the specifications for the snap & grow, they are offered with single layer polycarbonate panels. If you are planning to add heat during the winter, single layer requires approximately double the energy input of double layer polycarbonate. Even in zone 8, which we both are, the difference can be significant.
