Well, i saw this on a site, and wondered if it would be of any use growing Carnivores. Being just £55 it seem pretty good, and i can secure it down easily enough. Or add bubble wrap if needs must, but i need some opinions. http://www.greenfing...0&pf_id=LS9874D

As a cold greenhouse for Sarracenia and perhaps VFTs it should be fine. Until it blows away if we have any more of those storm force winds!! For tropical plants like Neps even with bubble wrap not really.
With all these types of greenhouses I suggest that you check availability and pricing of replacement covers. You might also want to consider looking at those on eBay that have reinforced plastic covers (green reinforcement).
Well, i wasn't planning on keeping Nepenthes in there anyway.
I'm using some bungees to keep the cover down, an to make it stay where it's meant to. And will be using some woods to create a floor, and staging for it, too keep it in the right place, may even make heavy wooden shelves for it, to keep the whole thing from blowing away.
I have to agree with Alexis, you are better off getting a second hand glass Greenhouse from gum tree, ebay or loot or somewhere similar. I got two greenhouses this way and it was the best thing I did, couldn't be without them now. If you do go for this sort of Greenhouse I would put money on it you will be replacing it very soon and end up getting a glass one anyway so why waste your money? just get a glass one now.
Might be a bit far for your Grandad to come It really would be worth getting something that'll last. I know it's a lot of extra effort with having to find a second hand one and then finding transport, but if you're lucky you might find someone selling or giving away one who would also give a little help with dismantling.
I have one of those Daniel. Its been outside for almost a year with minor damage. Put sand bags on the bottom and it wont go anywhere. Ime they are very good temporary greenhouses. I plan on getting a real one in the next year or so.
My zippers broke on it the first week I had it so if you do get one just keep that in mind. I had to make a velcro door for mine.
