You can always replace the plastic as needed about every 4 years is normal even with good green house plastic.

Grow bigger!!!!

I have to agree that bigger is better, but the 'cheap' pup-tent type hoop houses just will not hold up to the wind with their coat hanger type frames and light weight. Need wood and HD Plastic or acrylic walls with a heavier frame, or we are talking about a yearly disposable greenhouse which could end up trashed by mother nature even before one season ends.
