Hercules - Superior Strength,Good Standard Features & Great Value!
The Hercules Trafalgar range has all the features that help create the perfect greenhouse environment, and its structure has been specially designed to withstand adverse weather conditions, especially the wind.
All Hercules models include lots of roof vents (all automatic) and a suitable number of louvre side vents. Additional ones can be added, if you require them.
Hercules has more metal in the frame and has extra cantilever braces in the roof for strength. If you live in a windy area, Hercules is the greenhouse for you.
Good quality downpipes are included as standard, and come with a 45 degree bend for you to easily run the downpipe into a water butt. A good range of extra bends and T pieces are also available.
There is an 18" high pane of toughened glass all around the bottom of the greenhouse - Should you accidentally ever flick a stone up from your lawnmower and break a pane, it is small, easy and cheap to replace.
All glass is held in with full length PVC 'bar capping' - This eliminates the traditional greenhouse clips and is far neater and stronger in the wind.
Hanging basket rails are also included. These full length rails are made from sturdy T-section and you can hang your baskets straight from them, making them easier to plant up and grow on.
Many greenhouses on the market have a step at the door which can be inconvenient. Hercules greenhouses have a level threshold, which is ideal for wheelchair or wheelbarrow access - and no step for you.
The single sliding door is lockable, keeping it firmly closed when it's windy. It can also be locked with a key, for additional security.

Q. Does this greenhouse need a metal base or can I put it straight onto level stone slabs?
Also, how much staging do you think would be enough?
I have never owned a greenhouse, but am now trying to decide which to buy!
I am torn between the Hercules or the Simplicity Ultimate package... 6ft x 5ft is the biggest I can go for, as I have a small space.
A. Hello, this one can go straight onto the slabs and comes with the fixings to attach it to the floor. A 4ft run on staging and 4ft run of shelving is usually what most people go for. The Hercules is certainly a much stronger greenhouse than the Simplicity, it also has a low level threshold and hanging basket rails.
