About Us

Nestled in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, inside the Port of Tacoma, Washington, is the factory of Solar Gem Greenhouses and a team of skilled craftsmen who delight in building top-quality greenhouse products for gardening enthusiasts across North America. It has been our home since 1991, and our entire staff here sends you warm greetings and sincere wishes for the years ahead to be filled with an abundance of happy gardening.

In a sea of sameness, Solar Gem Greenhouses boldly stand out from the build-it-yourself/do-it-yourself kit greenhouses that depend on panes of glass or panels of plastic, and consumer assembly, which online retailers and big box home improvement stores peddle. Sadly, most of those products are built or assembled overseas, with foreign materials and foreign labor, and many are meant to be thrown away in a few years. But NOT a Solar Gem! Our products are ALL AMERICAN…materials, labor, and know-how…and are designed to perform like no others can, for decades!

Prior to 2014, the Solar Gem business model was focused almost exclusively on displaying and presenting our wonderful greenhouses and accessories at Garden Shows, Flower Shows, Home Improvement Shows, Fairs and the like, to gardeners living in the states of Washington and Oregon. But today, bolstered by a widely read 2013 article in Mother Earth News that highlighted the best backyard greenhouses available and public demand that has grown very strong over the years, Solar Gem launched its independent Stocking Dealer program. Our growing network of gardening entrepreneurs are bringing our legendary products to previously unserved markets across America and Canada. So, if you’d like to see a Solar Gem Greenhouse up close and personal, at a location closer to you, be sure to visit our “Find a Dealer” page for a Solar Gem Dealer in your neck of the woods. Also, you can visit our “Events Calendar” page to see if we’ll be at a show or fair near you soon.

No Dealer near you yet? No problem. The Solar Gem Factory will serve you directly by shipping your new Solar Gem Greenhouse directly to your home, no matter where you live. Visit our “Shop” page and pick out the greenhouse and accessories that are perfect for your needs and you’ll be backyard gardening in no time.

Thanks for visiting our website! We hope you’ll take the opportunity to navigate around here for awhile and see why so many people like you swear that Solar Gem Greenhouses are the finest YEAR-ROUND backyard greenhouses that money can buy. If you have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you.
