I like to grow herbs and different vegtables but often find tha tI have a problem protecting them from the kids and the dogs. By purchasing the Greenhouse shelves however I have found tha tthis is the easiste way to keep everything organized and out of reach of little hands. It comes with a shade cover so that nothing can get to it. I did think that the price was little on the steep side. For fifty dollars I would really think that you could get a lot more for your moeny. I did like the fact that the shelves were pretty spacious which allowed you to be able to fit multiple items on one shelf as long as the post were not too big. I would highly recommend this item to anyone who happens to enjoy gardening but you will need to make sure that they have the room for the shelves if you are buying it as a gift.
