All parts of the greenhouse are in very good original condition with all lugs and hooks complete to hold shelves and lock sides. There is a fracture to the top rail of the door threshold and part of the lower threshold is missing so the door has to be manoeuvred carefully into place. Components have only minor paint loss and it is rare to have the original plastic ‘window’ inserts that are just lifting slightly in a few places, mainly the roof. Plastic window missing from one long side and door. Box and lid label are complete and in very good original condition with just one small hole to lid where closed onto the spike of the roof in the past.
