i bought the second link a few months back the plastic was really good quality but the metal wasn't and the welds were terrible ,it wasn't weighed down properly and blew away the metal snapped but the plastic was fine i need to get a special welder cause the metal is so light :mad: its a good product but needs a lot of weighing down (im sure if its weighed down properly you wont have any trouble)  if i were u i'd get the one that wasnt in the garden picture as the one i bought was nice and big... hope this helps if you have any other questions just ask

As I said on another topic about these(not the one I've already linked)........my plastic (the green cross hatched type) is strong ..I'll agree .........but after a year is now porous, no watering needed in my polytunnel this winter. So it means in a years use....the frame has buckled twice and it would now need a new plastic...if it was worth buying one to cover a frame held together by plastic tape and ties.

I got mine cos I thought it would last while I saved up for a 2nd greenhouse..............and I suppose it has just about done that................
