THIS POLYCARBONATE GREENHOUSE: These great value metal greenhouses feature green powder coated aluminium frames with durable twinwall polycarbonate glazing, which is normally an expensive extra. These sensationally cheap greenhouses are always in stock and the price includes fast delivery. From a technical viewpoint this greenhouse is heavier and more rigid than others at similar prices and the glazing is held in better. The precise manufacturing and careful packing is a match for our most expensive greenhouses. Sophisticated features include well retained clip free glazing, additional bracing and numerous specially designed brackets and clips to improve the strength. With such a competitive price this metal greenhouse is a popular choice with first time buyers. With the ultra safe polycarbonate glazing it is also a popular choice for the elderly and families with children or pets.
EXTRA RIGIDITY: This greenhouse is heavier than most other polycarbonate greenhouses. It features a strong frame with a box profile aluminium ridge. The design includes the maximum possible number of diagonal corner braces, eaves struts and ridge struts to ensure maximum rigidity. The corners are securely fixed with triangular eaves and ridge brackets. In addition, specially designed brackets ensure that the vent frame and door framing are fixed more securely to the frame.
UNIQUE CLIP FREE GLAZING DESIGN: The unique glazing design ensures that the polycarbonate panels are held in place continuously along every edge including the top and bottom edges. With most greenhouses the glazing is retained along the vertical edges only and the top and bottom edges receive little or no attention. This greenhouse features a thick rubber cill gasket at the bottom edges of the wall panels. The other edges are retained within deep metal grooves in the glazing bars, the eaves beams and the ridge beam. The framing itself features an integral full length groove into which the edges of the glazing panels slide. The glazing panels are retained along the entire length of the framing. As a result, when the frame is fully assembled the glazing panels are more securely fixed and do not come out so easily. Unlike other glazing systems, no fixings, clips or capping strips are required.
STRONGER GABLE WALL GLAZING: The tallest glazing panels in the rear wall and to each side of the doors are divided in two for added strength. One piece panels are more likely to flex and spring out in winds. Strong aluminium glazing bars at the horizontal joints provide additional rigidity, unlike the plastic jointing profiles used by some others. The grooves in the horizontal glazing bars ensure that the glazing is retained more securely.
TWIN WALL POLYCARBONATE: Twin wall polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable and very practical. With small children or pets around polycarbonate greenhouses are safer. Polycarbonate is also safer to handle during installation. Polycarbonate greenhouses provide a similar growing environment to glass greenhouses with better insulation properties and reduced glare. Polycarbonate also provides good insulation from frost and maintains a more even temperature for better plant growth. Twin wall polycarbonate also diffuses light to prevent scorching. Twin wall polycarbonate glazing is stronger than the flimsy single skin polycarbonate sheeting supplied with some greenhouses.
POWDER COATED ALUMINIUM: The powder coated finish is more attractive than the stark silver finish aluminium greenhouses. The tough finish also has excellent weathering properties and retains its gloss and colour superbly. A good example of powder coating is the finish on your washing machine. Powder coated aluminium greenhouses have a similar finish.
BASE PLINTH: The base plinth makes installation much easier. It is designed to be a portable and prefabricated foundation beam. The plinth features a flat underside to spread the weight of the greenhouse over a larger area. The base plinth can be placed on any flat and level surface including soil, gravel, decking, concrete or paving slabs. It is best to prepare a perimeter footing of concrete or paving slabs for the base plinth to stand on. However, with care the base plinth can be placed on any surface including soil or gravel provided that the ground is flat and level.
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. Polycarbonate glazing is not recommended at exposed sites. Plants need plenty of water so your greenhouse should be close to a water supply and the site should be well drained.
SIZES - LENGTH AND WIDTH: The external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the length. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear including the door wall. The length refers to the side walls.

GREENHOUSE ACCESSORIES - ALWAYS IN STOCK: As a specialist greenhouse supplier, established since 1981, we pride ourselves on supplying more options and accessories than other suppliers. All of our greenhouse accessories are always in stock all the time. Many accesories are only available when you buy the greenhouse and not available separately. However, we always make an exception for one of our customers - if you purchased your greenhouse from us we will always supply any accessory you need at any time, even many years afterwards.
BASE ANCHOR FIXING KITS - FOR SOIL OR CONCRETE: This kit makes it easy to fix your greenhouse down securely into concrete, paving slabs, decking or even soil. The brackets are profiled to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth with fixing holes on the inside. The brackets are fixed from inside the greenhouse with coach screws fixed down into the concrete, paving slabs or decking. If you want to site your greenhouse on soil you will need a concrete trench around the perimeter or smaller pockets of concrete into which the brackets can be fixed. You can fix the base plinth down with screws and wall plugs but it is much easier with our profiled brackets. Fixing the greenhouse down is recommended at all sites. The kit includes:
- Profiled anchor brackets - shaped to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth, with predrilled fixing holes
- Masonry drill bit - used to drill the correct size hole in concrete or paving slabs
- Zinc plated coachscrews - supplied complete with washers and plugs to ensure a neat easy fit
VENTILATION: Improved ventilation increases the air circulation through the greenhouse for better growing results. Automatic openers react to heat which ensures that in hot weather the vents open in your absence and then close again when its cooler. Louvred ventilators provide a healthy air flow through the greenhouse to ensure improved growing conditions and better crops. Some plants such as alpines require more ventilation than others. If you are not yet sure which plants you are likely to grow improved ventilation will give you more versatility.
HEATERS: We offer a huge range of heaters so whatever your specific requirements we have a heater to do the job. Our electric heaters require a standard domestic 13 amp electricity supply. Our propane gas heaters require permanent trickle ventilation when in use. As an approximate guide, a 3kw heater will heat a greenhouse up to 8'x12' or provide frost protection only up to 10'x15' in normal site conditions. A 1.5kw heater will normally heat a greenhouse up to 6'x8' or provide frost protection only up to 6'x12'. Internal partitions are often used in large greenhouses to create a smaller warm room which is cheaper and easier to heat.
HEATING REQUIREMENTS: Heating requirements vary for several reasons. Location is one factor with more heating required in Scotland than in southern England and less heating required in a sheltered position. The design is also a factor. For example, dwarf walls improve the insulation and lean to greenhouses absorb warmth from the existing wall. Another factor is the materials used. Polycarbonate greenhouses retain heat better than glass and wooden greenhouses retain heat better than metal greenhouses. We recommend you to buy a bigger heater than you need - you can always turn it down.
POLYPROPYLENE FLOOR TILES: A durable polypropylene floor or footpath is an affordable alternative to slabs or concrete. Easy to install within a few minutes, these interlocking polypropylene pavers simply click together with no fixings needed. Unlike slabs or concrete these pavers are lightweight, easy to install and fully relocatable. Designed to spread weight, the finished floor is capable of supporting 36 tonnes per square metre. First the ground is levelled and then the pavers are laid directly on the soil. The pavers can also be laid on grass, sand or gravel. The finished floor or footpath is self draining and suitable for wheelbarrows and wheelchairs. It fits comfortably inside the greenhouse with a few inches to spare. The tiles are easily prised apart by folding so the floor is even quicker to remove if required.

Although our greenhouse was purchased some time ago, and has only just been completely assembled, due to a number of factors out of my control, one of which was the preparation of the site and the laying of a sound paved area.
Having said that, we are very pleased with the result and impressed with the rigidity and look of the greenhouse. The instructions were followed with care, and although one or two items in the ‘construction manual’ were a little tricky, with some thought and ‘try outs’, the final result was achieved. Thank you.
There was one item, right at the end of the Assembly process that disappointed us, was the Rubber Seal, which was about 20cm short in length. If you would be so kind as to forward this shortfall, it would make our purchase – Perfect.
Roger, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV23, 6x6 Greenhouse 017, 9th November 2018
EXTRA NOTE:- THE RUBBER SEAL WAS SENT ON 12th NOVEMBER
I have now had the opportunity to assemble and erect my new greenhouse. I am generally very pleased with the product quality and the precision in assembly. I would like to add that more detailed assembly instruction would have been welcome. I have one request however. When fitting the lower seal on the greenhouse base I found that I the seal length was significantly short, but about 1.5 meters. It may be that I exacerbated the situation by installing the seal without due considerations of stretching into place, however the seal I have installed seems to fit nicely. I would ask therefore if I can obtain a further 1.5 meters of seal to complete the install.
Thanks in advance
Ian, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12, 6x6 Greenhouse 017, 5th February 2018
The item requested has been received, and is perfect. Thank you.
I was very impressed with your packaging, it took me ages to unwrap it. Great.

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.
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.

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.

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

Many thanks for your friendly communication and highly efficient service. Greenhouse and shelving received safely today, and an initial check seems to confirm that all components are present.
One further thought - if you could send a couple of days of good weather it would be greatly appreciated as I am now straining at the leash to get it all up and running.
Many thanks for everything - hope my feedback does you justice.
