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.

Great greenhouse, easy to put up after you've sorted out the various pieces in number order. I put mine on a concrete base. Handy tip for drainage (after an idea from my brother-in-law) is to set 3/4" pipe sections into the top surface of the setting concrete so that they'll go under the greenhouse side. Then when it's set, remove them (see photo)
Didn't find it as easy as the other reviewer. I was working on my own and it took me three days. However the instructions were pretty good though a little more explanation to go with the excellent diagrams would have saved me time. My only problem was a few panes being VERY tight fits and one pane just not fitting ... I needed to have that one cut down ... I expect down to me not getting the frame totally square ... but itwasn't a big issue and the final result is a really excellent greenhouse ... very robust and a roomy and at such a good price!
Easy ro erect - frame up in half a day, glass in place in another half day - one and a half people working on it at a fairly leisurely pace. Strong design and loads of space with the extra eaves height.
