Dear Sirs,

Just a short note to say the Greenhouse was received today in two undamaged boxes and a package containing the Anchor Kit. I have opened the boxes and everything looks fine, but being cold outside, I will do the contents check tomorrow.

Thank you very much.


Good morning

Firstly I would like to say that I am really pleased with the greenhouse and its quality. Now that it is assembled I can confirm that it is really solid and well produced. However I lost a few nuts and bolts during the build and wonder if you could please send me 10 of each please. I built the greenhouse leaving these to be added in place that would not require disassembly.

Many thanks

Colin, Walton Park, Milton Keynes, MK7, 6x8 Greenhouse 017, 27th November 2017

Hello, thank you for confirming the below order.

I have two questions re Installation:

There is a very narrow driveway to our property. A transit van can fit but anything bigger will need to park road-side. Is that ok?

The greenhouse is going on a gravelled area. I would like to talk to the installer as soon as possible about any preparatory work that needs to take place before the greenhouse is installed. Please can you advise on what the process is re the installer that I chose when making the order?

Many thanks,

Good morning
Thank you for the prompt attention to my problem with the staging brace. Correct piece now received. Perfect fit and staging now complete.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are happy to hear that you are pleased with your purchase.

The best place to fit the louvre vent is in the centre of the rear wall at the bottom. To do this you need to remove panel 8 and cut it down with a sharp craft knife to fit the gap above the louvre blades after you have installed the louvre kit.

The dimensions of the louvre are in the separate instructions supplied with it. These also advise on the relatively simple task of fitting the blades in the louvre mechanisms and fitting those to the greenhouse frame. I have attached a copy of these to assist.

Best Regards

I received my order of an Aluminium Greenhouse 025 last week and have had sucess assembling it! I am very happy with the product. However, I cannot work out how to install the louvre vent that I purchased in the optional extras. I would be grateful if you could advise me where it is to be positioned and how to fit it. Many thanks, David


Just to let you know that I have received my planting table and I am delighted with it.

Richard, Enfield, EN2, 6x6 Greenhouse 005, 11th August 2017

feedback on aluminium green 005 6x6
delivered as promised
exceptional packaging and protection, took me 1.5hrs just to unpack.
went together very well, with only 1 person (me)
some negative comments,
bolt material so soft as to start stripping the thread at little more than hand tight. somewhere on your website it mentions a powered socket to save elbow grease!! a definite no no.
Glazing panels (toughened glass), glass or packaging not marked with code identifiers R1, R2, etc, easy to figure out after the first wrong offering.
assembly instructions make even the experienced DIYer stop and think in places, ie A1 step 1, "flat side of bottom bar faces inwards" (Flat side to me means horizontal)
profile end caps and gutter end caps are flimsy and tend to fall off.
base frame is flimsy and could do with being more rigid, especially in the door area, with maybe a simple diagonal to assure square.
second thoughts means I want to install a lower louvre vent, but on the website it states "replaces a normal size pane of glass", ??? the only locations suitable are in excess of 1000mm, except for the door lower, which you can not fit a louvre vent to.
all in all a great product, with some annoying niggles

Andy, Southampton, SO18, 6x6 Greenhouse 005, 5th August 2017


Dear Shane,

I am very happy with the item it is exactly as described on your website and if i need any other items i will not hesitate to order from you again.
Once again thank you for the telephone call and the prompt delivery and also for providing me with what i required.

Stephen, Coalville, Leicestershire, LE67, Growhouse 443, 7th June 2017

When I spoke to you today to order an automatic vent opener for the greenhouse that you supplied, you asked me concerning the fitter of the greenhouse. I was extremely pleased with (INSTALLER 196). He arrived on time. He knew exactly what he was doing. There was never any untidiness and generally he was a pleasure to have on site. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone requiring the installation of a greenhouse. Currently, he works only at the weekend for this type of installation working the rest of the week all over the country on specialist garage roof repairs.

Thank you for recommending him as the installer.

Once again many many thanks.

Peter, Wellington, Somerset, TA21, 8x10 Greenhouse 090, 23rd May 2017

Thank you for your help re Greenhouse 014 - I now have a very happy wife but see much less of her!

Thank you for supplying a spare door handle - I'm rather embarrassed as it had fallen out of the packaging so you supplied all parts correctly.

Re the additional pack I ordered. The louvre unit was not installed as the kit didn't include a metal bar (similar to the opening window) which I fell was not strong enough without, nor were the anchor bolts used as you supply as standard long angle plates to bury in the ground. Can I return these items to you in exchange for a second automatic window opener please?

Some notes on the unit as promised.

The frame is very well designed and when assembled, a strong structure. I particularly liked the triangular corner supports & roof stays. The assembly instructions were on the whole very comprehensive although at times difficult to follow.


The Base Plinth gave a lot of problems because it showed the bottom frames of the greenhouse assembled to it when it was a simple case of bolting the angled corners together. It would have also been useful to mention digging the 4 holes for the angled anchor.

The side & rear wall assemble went quickly when I laid the items out on the lawn in their position. Diagram 3 shows the door runner but doesn't identify its upright support & fixing - found by elimination. The aluminium nuts & bolts a very good idea but a few extra would have been helpful as some members had to be refitted a number of times due to yours truly!!!


My version was the 6mm which was hard to install particularly over the bolt heads of the triangular strengtheners -wished I'd gone for the 4mm version. Possibly bolts with thinner heads would have helped.
the box shaped capping pieces had to be cut where the angled supports joined the frame and at the end to fit over the bolt heads with a fine hacksaw. Instructions for this would have saved time.

Finished unit though was well worth the effort.

Hope these notes be useful for your rewrite.

Kind regards

Ken, Chinnor, Oxfordshire, OX39, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 22nd May 2017


Hi sgb thankyou for your email. I have placed an order as you can see for 3 sheets but I must stress that I do require 6MM THICK TWIN WALL it must be 6MM to match the rest of the glazing in my greenhouse as it came with 6MM specially ordered when you sent it . So just to reiterate if I may please send me only 6MM.
Thankyou once again and it is a pleasure to do business with you. I would like to say that my greenhouse is up and running fully with heater cooling fan thermostats etc and the build quality is awesome very sturdy with the Base concreted in . Very pleased and if I need any accessories or a larger one i will shop with you again in the future .

Russell, Blackburn, Lancashire, BB1, 6x4 Greenhouse 014, 4th May 2017

Dear Sir / Madam:

Today I finished erecting my greenhouse which looks really nice. However I had 4 brackets left over and I can’t work out where they are supposed to go. I must have lost the bag they came in with its identifying part number. Below is a picture of 1 bracket,hopefully you can help me, thanks.

best regards

Good afternoon, my order has arrived as planned, no damage and delivered right up to my gate. I'm particularly impressed by the glass protection!

Thank you Shane for a very well executed order completion 😊

Have great Easter!

Colin, Wigan, WN1, 6x8 Greenhouse 005, 12th April 2017

Just a quick message to thank you for a great service. Delivery on Wed 5th April was completed as arranged, no problems and done by two very helpful guys. Did not have time to check all the glass but packs seemed intact so will take a chance on that. Everything was excellent, will pass on your details to my friends and colleagues who may need something in future.
Many thanks

Hi there, my partner and I bought a 6x10 Aluminium 017 greenhouse a couple of weeks ago and we just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with it and your customer service.

It was delivered very quickly and was packaged very well.

Within the boxes many sections were packaged separately and it was all labelled clearly, making identification of parts very easy.

The instructions were clear (although some of the diagrams could have been a bit bigger to be clearer). The construction was a relative breeze, especially considering I am a novice and have not built a greenhouse before.

I did have need to call and clarify a couple of things, one regarding the base plinth supports, as I was mounting onto a hard surface and one was fitting the roof vents (I had missed the arrow on the plans, indicating that they were slid into place). On both occasions I spoke to a very helpful chap, who answered the queries and couldn't have been nicer.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone thinking of buying. We are delighted with the quality of the product and cannot wait to fill it up!

Kind Regards and Many Thanks

Debbie, Weston-Super-Mare, BS23, 6x10 Greenhouse 017, 9th April 2017

Hi. Just to say that I have now constructed the new greenhouse (017) which replaced the one I bought from you 10 years ago. I must say the improvements to the structure are immense (so much stronger). I found the instructions a bit difficult to follow as the photocopy was very faded, but got there in the end! Other that that really chuffed with it. 10 out of 10 for good, helpful service and quick delivery.

Well done. Thank you.

Kind regards

Ray, Carlisle, CA2, 6x8 Greenhouse 017, 7th April 2017

Dear gentlemen,

Thank you for sending a replacement runner wheel for my greenhouse. I was able to get out this afternoon to see about it and it is now running properly again.

Having ordered a 6x6 greenhouse from yoursleves late last year, I have eventually got round to constructing it.
I have to say, what an absolutely fabulous product - it was everything I'd expected and more.
Well built, good instructions, and not a single pieceof damage.
Even your chosen delivery courier was first class.
If you ever need a testimpony regarding your company or this product then please do not hesitate to ask.

I do have one favour to ask, however. :-)
During construction I mislaid one of the small black plastic gutter ends, and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sending me a replacement? I'm happy to pay if necessary.

I look forward to hearing from you.
