A few weeks ago, we had a very unusual emergency alert come through the Portland community. The alert said to not drink tap water until further notice due to a potential ecoli scare. Immediately, we realized we were not prepared with extra bottled water on hand and headed to the nearest store.
Great to hear from our customers! We just got a new post on the Garden Watchdog from a customer in Aurora, Colorado.

Whether you’re an experienced greenhouse gardener looking for the perfect way to improve your greenhouse gardening, or a complete beginner looking to get started right, you should consider the features and benefits of Solexx greenhouses. Solexx greenhouses are constructed of a sturdy, composite frame and strong, flexible plastic walls and ceiling.
