The Simplicity Shugborough is based on the Stramshall greenhouse, offering a higher eaves height.

There are several reasons why it's better to have a greenhouse with high eaves:

- A larger volume of air creates a more stable growing environment, with less dramatic fluctuations in temperature.
- Your plants have more headroom.Taller plants such as tomatoes and chrysanthemums need the height.
- High eaves give you more headroom- Ideal if you're tall.
- High eaves give you room on the side for a high level shelf. 

NOTE: this greenhouse has the option of bar capping which is not normallay found in greenhouse in this price range 
 
Most greenhouses do not include diagonal roof braces. Simplicity models come complete with 4 (or 2 on the smallest models). These useful additions dramatically improve the strength of the frame, plus they make the greenhouse easier to assemble because they make the greenhouse more inclined to go up square.
 
Simplicity models use the better quality stainless steel band clips to hold the glass in rather than the more flimsy galvanized wire clips
 
All prices for this model include a sturdy aluminum base 4" high, complete with anchors. The Alu base gives you a firm foundation which can be assembled on soil, slabs or concrete and makes the job of assembly quicker and easier
 
The unique Simplicity double box section corner bar gives the frame more rigidity than most other greenhouses. Along with the exclusive foam cushion glazing seal, this helps prevent loss of panes in windy weather. In our simple test, we were able to suspend 6 bags of cement (150kg) where as other makes of greenhouse were buckling with 50- 75 kg
 
Door wheels are made from nylon for hard wearing characteristics. The door wheel bolt is turned from solid brass with a smooth shank to reduce wear on the wheel. This costs us more than other ways of doing it, but we know how frustrating it can be if wheels disintegrate on your greenhouse after a few years- and spares can be hard to come by
 
Upgrade to the bar capping system and you can eliminate clips completely from your greenhouse- Glass will then be held in along it's full length - providing a far neater finish and superior strength in windy conditions.

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.

I am very impressed with my greenhouse as it feels very sturdy and strong. This by far beats my last greenhouse and would recommend the greenhouse people to be the first place to look for a greenhouse. Found the greenhouse simple to erect and the instructions were not to difficult to follow and took 2 days to erect and put glass in would also recommend the bar capping option as this was easy to install. 5 out of 5 for this greenhouse

We bought our greenhouse late in 2013, so I'm embarrassed that I'm writing a review so late! The delivery turned up bang on time, the delivery driver was absolutely lovely and everything was delivered intact. My husband found the greenhouse quite easy to put up, but he spent a lot of time reading and understanding the instructions. The greenhouse is very solid and survived a few nasty gales. The extra height was well worth the extra cost, as was the toughened glass option. So far, so good - very happy with the product and the service.

great product. The numbering of the sections made the whole process straightforward. The installation of the glass does require two people though. Would recommend the this company both in terms of product and delivery

Worth paying the extra for high eaves, toughened glass and bar capping. The finished item seems huge and feels very substantial. It has survived the first gale anyway! I'll tell you more after a complete winter....

  • 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.

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

    £98.00
    Simplicity Bar Capping set (White) for Shugborough 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.
