Are you looking for a real greenhouse - not just a season extender - but something thick and sturdy enough to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers all the way though brutal winters and harsh winds? With a combination of strong materials and durable hardware, the Riga Greenhouse is by far the strongest greenhouse kit in the US. Clear walls, reflective shelving and an onion shaped roof ensure that that sunlight will always reach your plants, even after the heavy snowfall. This greenhouse has every feature you need, including:
- Enough insulation needed to grow plant year-round anywhere in the continental US. The glazed, double pane walls cost 40% less to heat than single pane walled greenhouses.
- Light weight polycarbonate walls and glazing that softly diffuses light as it passes through.
- More ventilation than similarly units. The automatic window vent opens at 80 degrees F and make the greenhouse much safer for heat loving plants in the summer. It also makes it more comfortable for gardeners, kids and pets!
- Two optional layers of shelving. Tall plants (beans, tomatoes etc) don't need shelving but that are using to pack in more seedlings, greens and flowers. The shelves are suspended so larger plants and yard tools can be stored underneath.
- All shelving is white, reflective polycarbonate. It is very sturdy and white color allows extra light to diffuse around the greenhouse.
- An optional 6 inch tall base frame can be used on top of soil, grass, mulch or any other well draining materials
- Once assembled, the Riga's grooved frames are permanently attached to each other and won't come loose from age or wind.
- The onion shaped roof will not collapse under the weight of snow. In fact, Riga greenhouses routinely withstand large hail and winds over 80 mph.
- Can be modified to create slots for an exhaust fan and heater.
- 6" base frame attaches to the bottom of the greenhouse. Can be mounted on top of grass, mulch, soil, flagstone, wood, concrete or brick floor. Provides 6" of additional inside height.
- Excellent for storing and ripening the season's harvest and for sheltering potted plants in the winter.
- Comes with both instructional DVD, assembly diagrams and fantastic phone and email support from the experts at Exaco.

About 8% of your personal carbon footprint comes from the food you eat! Of that, 40% comes from harvesting, shipping, preparing and selling food. On top of that, the modern supply chain for food results is a lot of food waste, which also means using excess fuel and energy for food that won't even be eaten! If you use your garden to replace 20% of our store bought food, then you can reduce you carbon footprint by at least 68 lbs of CO2 per year.
