About Farm Wholesale
We discovered corrugated plastic at an agriculture show back in 1986. There was a demonstration of tomato hot caps made with the material. What impressed us most were the results - results verified by independent research: accelerated plant growth, increased fruit production, and best of all...an earlier harvest!
With our interest in gardening and backgrounds in biology and plant science, we saw an entirely different opportunity. We saw the opportunity to develop an attractive, affordable greenhouse...a greenhouse for the average home gardener...a greenhouse that put function over fancy.
We knew our greenhouse had to be environmentally friendly. It also needed to be lightweight, inexpensive, easy to ship and most of all strong...strong enough to withstand heavy winds and snow. It also needed to help gardeners like you grow healthier, stronger plants. The greenhouse we introduced three years later met those goals.
Farm Wholesale's Solexx™ greenhouses feature a unique combination of steel, outdoor grade PVC and composite tubing (the same material use to make bridges) to give you years of service with absolutely no maintenance required - just put it up and use it. And every one of our Solexx™ greenhouses feature that amazing corrugated plastic covering material we discovered way back in 1986. We use it because it works - it works better than anything else we've ever seen.
With several models to choose from, you're bound to find a Farm Wholesale Greenhouse suited to your specific site, growing and gardening needs.
- The Solexx Garden Oasis Greenhouse is our most popular greenhouse. With four 8' bench frames in the Oasis model you get about 76sq. ft. of bench area in the basic 8' x 8' unit. The 6'5" door height provides plenty of headroom for the taller gardener. All Solexx greenhouses comes standard with a large louvered vent and are covered with our 3.5mm twin-walled Solexx™ greenhouse paneling.
- The Solexx Harvester Greenhouse is designed to hug the side of your house, hedge, garage, sit easily on deck, or stand alone on a stable foundation. The Harvester provides the best of both worlds: a single bench frame for easy work-space or taller plants and a double-decker bench frame for growing space. Perfect for use on a deck or patio, all Havester models are completely enclosed for maximum strength, insulation, and solar heat collection.
- The Solexx Conservatory Greenhouse is perfect for the business-minded gardener! The storage and workspace available in this model is great for the beginning commercial operation. These spacious greenhouses give you the most growing area. Conservatory's feature two single level steel-reinforced side benches and a large 5' wide, double-decker, steel-reinforced central bench unit.
- The Solexx Garden Master Greenhouse with 6'6" outer walls and a gable that peaks at 8'9", has ample room to trellis plants like cucumber, cantaloupe and tomatoes. When you complete your Garden Master Greenhouse, you will be amazed at how much room you have to nurture and grow all your favorite flowers, herbs and vegetables. Like all Solexx greenhouses, the Gold Garden Master is freestanding and requires no special foundation or site preparation, just level the ground beneath it.
- The Early Bloomer Greenhouse is popular, functional, and affordable. A pair of overhead hanging rods provide ample space for all your favorite plants. The 6'3" height of the greenhouse allows the hanging rods to be easily accessible. The greenhouse is easily portable to place directly over your garden bed to start seeds early and extend your harvest into early winter. Or add heat and grow year round!
Cold Frame Kits are designed for those that have limited space:
- The Deluxe Cold Frame is perfect for starting seedlings in the spring, acclimating greenhouse-grown plants before transplanting them into the garden, or holding off the winter frost a little longer. Farm Wholesale's Deluxe Cold Frame gives you all the benefits of our greenhouses in a portable, convenient unit. Larger than most cold frames, the Deluxe Cold Frame is 8' long, 6' wide, and 31" high, providing ample storage space for those prized summer plants that you cannot bear to let wither away with the gray winter ahead.
A combination of our uniquely designed framing with double-walled Solexx covering creates a durable structure that withstands heavy snows and strong winds. The exterior 3.5mm Solexx covering fills the greenhouse with soft diffused light, ideal for plant growth. White galvanized screws with neoprene washers make it easy to attach the lightweight, flexible, Solexx covering to the frame.
The interior is designed to be an integral part of the structure. Bench frames and hanging rods are steel- reinforced for stability and strength. Hanging rods are designed to suspend up to 200 lbs each. Each bench frame supports up to 500 lbs of equal weight distribution. Most kits (except cold frames and the Early Bloomer) include pre-cut, color-coded PVC framing, along with a large Louvered Air Vent on the back wall, two hanging rods, and bench frames.
Our revolutionary Solexx greenhouse covering sets Farm Wholesale Greenhouses apart from other hobby greenhouses on the market today. The translucent greenhouse covering transmits 75% soft diffused light, encouraging lush green plant growth. The strength of the corrugates provides maximum wind and snow protection. The trapped air space in the insulated panels provides optimal solar heat collection
Double-walled high density Solexx covering is mildew, water, and chemical resistant and it will not yellow. A double ultraviolet treatment extends the life of the glazing. All Solexx™ glazing has a 10-year limited warranty against ultraviolet breakdown.
The covering is strong, durable, and lightweight with many useful applications. Purchase Solexx covering separately and create your own cold frame, mini propagation chamber, or custom designed greenhouse.
Want to enjoy a relaxing lifestyle change? When you purchase a Farm Wholesale Greenhouse, you get more than you pay for! The soft difussed light in your greenhouse provides a relaxing lifestyle for you. You can grow specialized varieties of flowers, herbs, or vegetables that are not always available at the local garden center. As your garden grows so can your greenhouse by adding an 8' extension.
