This is the ideal starter greenhouse, and is now rapidly outselling the Halls Popular due to its superior strength and larger range of options including bar capping.

The Simplicity Classic has better  features such as quality door wheels which have a turned brass centre with ball bearings for longer life and smooth running.

Box section corner bars, gutters and ridge ensure good performance in high winds. Many customers also prefer the Classic over the Halls Popular because it has better quality vents, door wheels, draught excluders and quality stainless steel band clips to hold the glass in.

What's more, if you upgrade to Toughened safety glass (in large panes, with no overlaps) you can also upgrade to the bar capping system which eliminates clips completely from your greenhouse- Glass will then be held in along it's full length with matching PVC capping- providing a far neater finish and superior strength in windy conditions.

Please note that we are INCLUDING the galvanised base in the price sometimes retailers price the base as an optional extra  but most customers need the galvanised base as it removes the need for a brick plinth  just sit the greenhouse straight onto slabs or soil (soil anchors included add the concrete anchoring kit for slabs or concrete)

We strongly recommend that you upgrade your glass to the toughened safety glass.

Toughened glass is about 7 times stronger than horti glass
When you upgrade to toughened glass you increase the strength of you glazing by up to 7x. As a rough guide - it may take a football (but not a cricket ball)
Toughened glass is far neater
The standard horticultural glass is in small 2ft panes with overlaps between panes. these overlaps can become filled with dirt and algae in time and then it is hard to keep your greenhouse clean. When you upgrade to Toughened glass, we supply this in large panes with no overlaps between panes so your greenhouse looks better from the start and is far easier to keep on top of. Remember too that cleaner glass gives you more light transmittance which improves growth.
Toughened glass is safer.
Anyone can slip, trip or fall near a greenhouse and when you upgrade to toughened glass you do so with the peace of mind that when it does break it will disintegrate into thousands of smaller pieces rather than dangerous dagger-like shards. toughened glass is far less likely to cause injury than horti glass.
If you add nothing else, then do add the toughened glass, it’s a little more money of course, but in the long term you will be pleased that you chose it (and of course you can’t add it later)

Q. With full sheet toughened glass, if I have extra louvres will I need to cut the glass to make them fit?

A. No, you won't have to do that. We automatically adjust the toughened glass for you, it is quite often the case that extra louvres and vents are added. You will have the correct glass delivered.

First, if you live on a road that's hard to negotiate, make sure you insist on a van. Despite our warnings, the first delivery came on a removal lorry-size vehicle and we had to wait 10 days for a repeat delivery (although the delivery fee was refunded as a result). Erecting the greenhouse is relatively simple (especially if you played with meccano as a child), but check the diagrams closely to see the order in which pieces should be attached. Easy to overlook are two screws that hold the bottom of the access window in the roof which must be inserted BEFORE attaching the vertical struts to the apex. The toughened glass went in smoothly apart from one panel that exploded as it was pressed into the frame (a new pane was shipped to us free of charge within 24 hours). The final result is very pleasing and seems quite sturdy; we haven't even attached the base to the concrete.

The greenhouse arrived on time and the delivery driver was very helpful. The instructions were a bit unclear to start with so it took a little while to understand them but once we had worked them out it was fairly simple to assemble. Glazing was easy except the clips were very stiff and almost impossible to put in but that was because we didn't know the right technique to put them in as the instructions didn't say. we only worked it out on the last pane of glass! The frame and base took 1 day to assemble and the glass took an afternoon to put in. We are very pleased with the finished product, it is very sturdy and well made. The greenhouse people gave us excellent service and the only thing that could be improved is the detail of the instructions.

It took me 6hrs one day on my own and 6hrs with a friend the next. It really pays to put all the frame pieces in separate stacks (ie front, back, sides, & roofalong with all thw relevant fittings. Try a 'dry' run so the instructions actually make sense! The toughened glass is a necessity as inconstruction you can't help knocking it occasionally. Ver well pleased with the finished product - delivery on time and excellent value.

  • Simplicity Auto louvre opener

    More information
    £32.00
    Simplicity Auto louvre opener

    This mechanical device is designed to automatically open and close a louvre vent, in response to temperature. A wax-like substance, contained in the cylinder, expands with heat, operating a piston which opens the louvre via a linkage arm. As the temperature falls, the process reverses, and a spring closes the louvre. There is also an adjustment knob, which enables the opening temperature to be altered to between 15 and 25 degrees centigrade.

    Some simple drilling is required to fit the opener to the side of the louvre vent.

    Height: 32" / 813mm

  • Simplicity Bar Capping set (White) for Classic 8ft

    £89.00
    Simplicity Bar Capping set (White) for Classic 8ft

    This capping will only fit Simplicity brand greenhouses

    IMPORTANT: Bar Capping will only fit toughened glass, it will not fit normal horticultural glass. 
    All glass on this model is held in place with stainless steel clips. These are fine, but they can show up against a green frame and your glass can sometimes be a bit vulnerable in high winds. So now you can replace these clips with the optional bar capping System.This is a set of full length PVC strips which hold the glass along the full length.This gives a far neater finish plus it is a lot easier to keep clean because the clips are no longer used. Your whole greenhouse is stronger in the wind when bar capping is used. The capping is a similar shape to the stainless steel clip and it clips in,in a similar way- the difference being that the PVC is the full length e.g. 5' long).You can only use bar capping with the whole sheet toughened glass.
