THIS ALTON GREENHOUSE: The traditional style of Alton cedar greenhouses will grace any garden old or new. Features include toughened safety glass throughout with large pane glazing and cedar glazing beads. These high quality Alton greenhouses also include concrete base kerbs and a kerbless doorway to provide easy access. Gutters and downpipes are included. The panels are prefabricated which makes Alton greenhouses easier to install than an aluminium greenhouse. Options include attractive built in cedar slatted staging and high level shelving.

WESTERN RED CEDAR: Western Red Cedar is a naturally resilient timber which lasts longer than pine and other softwoods, even if never treated from new. It has been widely used in construction for over a century. During this time cedar has deservedly earned an unrivalled reputation for its attractive appearance and extraordinary durability. It is the ideal choice for people who are too busy to maintain their garden building. This oily timber has a strong but pleasant aroma which repells insects. Cedar contains hardly any knots. If untreated it will fade to a silvery grey colour. Western Red Cedar is a sustainable resource from the well managed forests of North America.

CONCRETE BASE KERBS: The concrete base kerbs make installation easier. They are designed to form a portable and prefabricated foundation beam. The frames are fixed into the base kerbs which helps to strengthen the frame and increases wind resistance. In addition, the concrete base kerbs ensure that the greenhouse frames are not in contact with the ground which provides improved durability. It is best to prepare a perimeter footing of concrete or paving slabs for the base kerbs to stand on. However, with care the base kerbs can be placed on any surface incuding soil or gravel provided that the ground is flat and level.

TOUGHENED GLASS: Toughened glass is the best glazing material for use in greenhouses. It is around 6 times stronger than normal glass so it is less likely to break and when it does break toughened glass breaks into harmless small pieces. This makes toughened glass the best option for all the family including children, pets and the elderly. Toughened glass also strengthens the frame and it is heavy which helps to resist wind. Full height toughened glass is supplied in larger sizes than horticultural glass with no overlapping glass.

CEDAR PANELLING: The integral cedar panelling is tongued and grooved cedar matchboarding. Cedar panelling offers better heat retention in the winter than fully glazed greenhouses. It is also ideal for growing shade-loving plants such as ferns. The cedar cladding boards are fully built into the greenhouse frame as an integral part which cannot be detached.

GREENHOUSE LOCATION: Ideally your greenhouse should have a clear space at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. This ensures easy access for both installation and future maintenance. In reality this is often not practical and at many sites it is not needed. A reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. You should cut back or remove any nearby shrubs and trees. Remember to allow for future growth. Ideally the ridge of a greenhouse should run from east to west. The best position for a freestanding greenhouse is a sunny spot outside the shadow of nearby buildings and trees. A sheltered position is best otherwise additional screening may be advisable. Plants need plenty of water so your greenhouse should be close to a water supply and the site should be well drained.

OCTAGONAL BUILDING SIZES: For ease of reference these octagonal greenhouses are measured as a rectangle. The first dimension listed is the overall width from side to side and the second dimension is the depth from front to back. The external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. These sizes do not include the roof overhang. Many other suppliers quote the overall roof size which is much larger.
