THIS POLYCARBONATE GREENHOUSE: These great value greenhouses include a number of unique features to improve the structural rigidity and the glazing. Standard features include vertical and horizontal PVCu bar capping with triple corner brackets and additional bracing to improve the strength. The aluminium frame is green powder coated as standard and the glazing is twinwall polycarbonate, which is often an expensive extra. These sensationally cheap greenhouses are always in stock and the price includes fast delivery. The precise manufacturing and careful packing is a match for our most expensive greenhouses. 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 weighs more than most other polycarbonate greenhouses. The strong frame features three corner brackets instead of one like other greenhouses. This ensures a stronger connection between the front, the side and the roof. The design also includes the maximum possible number of eaves struts and ridge struts to further improve the strength and rigidity.
UNIQUE ALL ROUND PVC BAR CAPPING: The unique glazing design ensures that the polycarbonate panels are held in place better than most polycarbonate greenhouses. A few other greenhouses feature PVCu bar capping but normally this retains the glazing along the vertical edges only. The top and bottom edges receive little or no attention. This greenhouse includes additional horizontal bar capping which retains the glazing at the top and bottom edges aswell. Because the glazing panels are retained on all sides, when the frame is fully assembled the glazing panels are more securely fixed and do not come out so easily.
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.

Thank you very much for your help this morning.
I have received the first package of 30 nuts and bolts in the late post today.
Looking forward to the receipt of the remaining 4 nuts and bolts and 4 replacement square end caps that I damaged.
Thanks once again for your excellent customer service.

David, Burradon, Cramlington, NE12, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 7th March 2019
Delivery received (3 parts) 1730 today haven't opened packets yet. What great service.
Barry, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 24th January 2019
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.

EXTRA NOTE:- THE UNWANTED ACCESSORIES WERE EXCHANGED FOR AN AUTOMATIC OPENER AS REQUESTED
Hi sgb thankyou for your email.

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
I've assembled the green house and it is really nice. However, my greenhouse cropped head nuts and bolts which I need to attach shelves do not fit in the frame of this green house. Can you supply me with cropped head nuts which will fit?
Sam, Okehampton, Devon, EX20, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 27th October 2016
EXTRA NOTE:- THE ACCESSORIES WE SUPPLY ALWAYS INCLUDE ALL SUITABLE FIXINGS BUT ACCESSORIES SUPPLIED BY OTHERS MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE WITH OUR GREENHOUSES.
Today I took delivery of order (ORDER NUMBER). I signed for 4 of 4 packages and soon realised that the 2-tier, 4-foot aluminium staging with green finish was not included within the shipment. I called to inform you of the missing item at around 13:30 this afternoon and was told that I would be contacted later today. Please can you advise if the missing item has already been sent as a separate shipment or whether this item has been overlooked.
I'm halfway through installing the greenhouse at the moment and would like to thank you for what seems to be a good quality product.

Dear Summer Garden Buildings
Thank you so much for the service and supply of our Greenhouse. A mad rush to get it set up before I had to fly out of the country on a business trip, but all works perfectly well and it is now full of produce that is rapidly growing. However, I do have one problem, I seem to have misplaced the two catches that hold the window opening arm. Please could you send me replacements and advise cost so I can make payment.
Once again, I cannot rate you highly enough on your overall service, from ease of order to deliivery and then to quality of final product.
Tony, Calne, Wiltshire, SN11, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 24th April 2015
