My little 6 x 8 HF GH is too full. Your mother was right when she said to get the biggest one you could afford. The lemon tree just has to move out, but survive the winter. Might add another HFGH 6 x 8 next year. Got this popup GH from Amazon and the lemon has a new home along with some other large potted patio plants. Put it up on the patio in under an hour. Hopefully a good solution for now.

I have the 10 x 12' Harbor Freight. When I finished building it, I thought, "WOW! I have so much room!" then I added the potting bench. "OK. Ill just push it into the corner". No, the sink had to go in that corner. Then build the shelving for potted plants. Wow, that was about 3 1/2 ft wide cutting my GH almost in half! Now that the 10 large pots are taking up the floor space, the generator housed inside, too. There is barely enough room for me to walk! And to think I left 7 more large pots in the garage. I know they make bigger GHs, but that would mean I'd have to move to a bigger yard!

This new little GH is holding its own and staying around 55 tonight with only two 65 watt light bulbs. I put a short row of that pink foam insulation board around the walls but only about 3 feet tall. Also "tented" the mylar blankets around the plants inside. It's on the patio against the house so it has that for wind block plus the patio has a roof. It's quite windy and cold at 42 degrees tonight, and we had no sunshine today, so I'm pleased that the new GH is going to work out for the patio plants.

Meanwhile my HF GH is managing to stay around 56-58 tonight with a small heater. Glad I got the solar pool bubble cover on it, but I still added the mylar blankets around the walls today since it is so cold and going to freeze. Using those cheap ones from Amazon. They add a nice additional warming factor.
