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.

The extra height makes the greenhouse feel a lot more spacious than my old 6' x 8' which was on the same site. I would highly recommend this model if you are tall! It was fairly easy to put up even though it is in a very awkward space and some of the glazing had to be done from the inside which was tricky, but possible with a bit of help from another person. It's well worth taking time to read all the instructions carefully before you start. You do need two people for the roof glazing especially if using toughened glass as the panes are bigger than the horticultural glass panes. The help given over the phone was great, and I'm very pleased with the finished result.
The Simplicity Shugbborough 8x6 greenhouse I purchased from The Greenouse People Is now up and running just a few weeks after placing the order. From start to finish I have been impressed with the time scale, information provided, knowledge of staff and the quality of the greenhouse. The preperation and build guidelines were spot on & anyone (ideally 2 persons) with some DIY skills can erect this greenhouse in the suggested time of 2 days quite easily. The greenhouse itself is very secure easily screwed down and I would strongly recommend the toughened glass both from an aesthetic look but more importantly safety. The 6x8 size fits snugly in the corner of my garden as it would in most gardens even if it takes a little bit of juggling as I had to do.
I would like to thank The Greenhouse People for there help in finding this great greenhouse. I had looked at the Elite high-eaves, but when I saw this at your show site, to be honest there was not much difference in the Quality! Now my greenhouse has been fitted by one of your recommended fitters, and I am very pleased. I really good quality greenhouse, with loads of room!
