I just installed the last pane of glass, the one you ordered for me and it’s perfect! The greenhouse is finished and it is beautiful!

My wife and I assembled it on a concrete pad in about 2wks. I’m handy but certainly not a professional builder. The junior orangerie arrived intact with clear instructions. There were videos and the phone help line were available and very helpful. David Kerr, our contact at Exaco was accessible and friendly. His support and advice were very much appreciated.

The Janssen greenhouse is a well engineered high quality product!

We are so glad to have found Exaco Trading co. from whom we purchased it and who assisted us in building it!

I’m am sure it will provide us with many years enjoyment.

I highly recommend Exaco Trading co. and the Janssen products.

"...a very robust greenhouse, was quick and fairly easy to build, and had some great customer support when needed..."

Bought a Jr Vic 24 it was very easy to build. Took me 2 weeks only working 2 to 3 hours a day with like 5 days of no work due to being rained out. Everyone at Exaco that I talked to over the phone or in emails were very nice and were able to either answer my questions or get me to someone who could.

Couple delivery problems but eventually got all the items. First problem wasn\'t even Exaco fault the freight company that delivered it to me didn\'t notice that it was 3 boxes and only gave me the glass at first but I got the other 2 boxes a few days later. Second I was missing the seed tray but Claudia sent that out right away after I told her it was missing.

The instructions are just pictures so sometimes it was a bit hard to see what to do. Even the video online was just a few animated slides again no narration not even a little bit of ambient music. Sometimes thought the video was buffering cause it lingered on a shot for so long and there was no sound. This is where I\'m removing 1 star. Although I made it through the build it would have been much more helpful to have instructions with both pictures and worded instructions on what you\'re supposed to do.

Few hard points of the build. First was where the roof brace next to the wind supports there is no room so the support has to either be on top of the wind braces or below either way getting your fingers in there to try and put on a nut was difficult. Second the sliding glass door has a few self tapping screws in the bag but the head on them is huge making it so the sliding glass door couldn\'t be put on with them there. I just went to my tool box and found some flat head self tappers and put those in place and it worked really well. Finally the clips they provide in with the shade cloth kinda suck. They are good for the top of the greenhouse but not the sides, they are just a bit to long and will catch on the screws holding the center supports and then pop out of the plastic loops holding them. I just replaced them with some zip ties and now the shade cloth opens and closes much easier and without the shade cloth coming undone. I also ran out of the crescent shaped rubber seal but again I was offered more of it which is pretty cool that the people at Exaco would offer that.

Amazingly the part I thought would be hard, and was a little worried about when I decided to build it myself, was really easy. Putting the glass on was easier then building the frame. I was worried I\'d be breaking glass and having to order more but the tool they give you made moving the glass around and setting it in place rather quick and painless.

All in all it feels like a very robust greenhouse, was quick and fairly easy to build, and had some great customer support when needed and because of that I\'ll add back in the star I removed before because their service is just that helpful. 5/5 stars from me. Big thanks to David, Claudia, Lorraine, and Alan over at Exaco.


Fantastic!

I have owned this for almost 5 years and love it. I live at 8,200 feet so growing is always a challenge. With this greenhouse I can grow anything including hot peppers. The self opening windows work perfectly and really help regulate temperature. It is well built and I have had zero problem. Punch line is that I love it

Yes! I recommend this product.

I’m wondering if you could advise on a size (BTU) heater I would need for my size greenhouse in my climate?

Tristan Throgmorton | 8/4/2020

Sorry – the answer is not that simple. For one thing I do not know your climate. You will have to tell me. And next: how warm do you want to keep it in side: over wintering outdoor plants requires less heat than, orchids or growing form seeds during the winter.

Secondly, it greatly depends on what you are doing with your greenhouse – for example the more plants the fuller it is the more natural heat is retained and generated. There is a big different between half full and full: can make 10-15º difference. Large raised beds are a great heat generator.

Another option is: to use 1 or 2 large open troughs – 70 gal. + (full with water) (from say Tractor Supply) – these to can add 10-15º at night. And at the same time they offer additional humidity during the cold winter months.

One of our major customers offers the following calculator: http://igctest.commercev3.com/greenhouse_btu_calculator

Generally you will need to experiment.


Hello, I am considering a junior greenhouse. What is the best way you suggest to anchor into ground for this type greenhouse?

Pamela | 10/15/2016

Hello, The Junior Victorian is versatile enough that it can be placed directly on the ground or on a perimeter concrete slab. The Junior Victorian comes with ground stakes at each corner that get inserted either into the soil or into the concrete to secure the greenhouse. If you have any more questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.877.760.8500 Thanks Customer Support
