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 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)
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.
Q. What is the height of the base unit without the legs?
Q. Please can you tell me what size base I would need to have this greenhouse placed on, is it fully sealed with having a metal base, do you errect and if so what would be the total cost for supply & errect. Thanks Mike
A. As a minimum foundation for the Simplicity Classic Mill 68 **Mill Package**, you wold require 7'x 9' paving slabs. The metal base would be fixed to the foundations with rawlplugs and screws. All customers that order a greenhouse from us receive a list of approved greenhouse fitters. The approx. cost of fitting on a pre-existing level foudation would be expected to be around £175.
Q. How long is delivery on this greenhouse?
A. Delivery is currently 3-5 weeks, but is more likely to be 3 than 5. We will contact you before delivery to confirm an exact date with you. (Sep 2015)

Excellent service all round. Delivery excellent, all greenhouse parts present and straightforward to construct. Very happy, would recommend this company.
Simple to erect once plans had been interpreted.Thanks to Alex for her help when one piece of glass found to be missing.
Generally very pleased with final product. Few niggles! Found that sealing strip was not quite enough. Could have done with a few meters more.Also receieved wrong cills for louvre - not cut properly. However excellent support given by James Spooner meant replacements sent out promptly. Also bit mean with nuts and bolts. Fortunately had some spare from greenhouse I had many years ago.Glad I purchased plastic glazing strips because I found the metal clips I tried in a couple of places to be less than effective! Found assembly instructions or should I say pictures geneally very clear however found base leaflet somewhat confusing...although all info there...somewhere..
You need to read & follow the assembly instructions carefully to ensure that the parts are fitted the correct way. Otherwise very substantial greenhouse
Great service and good product delivered promptly on the day specified. Driver came around to back door and unloaded everything into garage was very pleasant and helpfull. Erected greenhouse myself in two days, frame one day glazed the next, very easy as good instructions, all parts marked up correctly Alex Mothersill FCM I/eng ImarENG MImarEST MIdiagE

Traditionally,greenhouses always used to sit on a little brick plinth.Now however, most of the greenhouses in our range can be fitted with a metal base.This means that you can fix the greenhouse straight onto either a concrete foundation or one made of concrete slabs. Greenhouse manufacturers make various types of metal base.Using our experience of installing greenhouses we decided to offer our customers a base design that incorporates all the best features of these bases but which is simple to install and much stronger in order to achieve an improved life-span.
Our galvanised metal bases include anchor legs in each corner,more on greenhouses of 10ft length and above.This design allows you to anchor your greenhouse straight into the soil by digging a hole in the ground under each anchor leg and then use concrete to secure the legs into the ground. However, while this method maybe satisfactory,we would strongly advise that you should always have a solid concrete or paving slab foundation under your greenhouse, especially if it is larger than 6ftby 8ft.
Features of our metal bases:
-Made from steel for strength and galvanised to prevent rust.
-Neater finish (as pictured) since the outside face is smooth. Complete with an anchor leg in each corner, plus extra legs on longer models for anchoring into soil.
-Brackets are provided to fix the metal base to the greenhouse frame making it much easier to install the greenhouse because less drilling is required.
- Guaranteed for 10 years - for peace of mind.
- Full instructions included.
Toughened glass is approx 700% stronger than horticultural glass, so it is far harder to break. When it does break, it disintegrates into hundreds of tiny pieces, so it is far safer than horticultural glass ( which can form dangerous daggers of glass when broken)
However, the main reason that the toughened glass is now so popular is that it is supplied in large sheets- This means that there are no overlaps between the panes (with normal horticultural glass, you get a 10mm overlap between every pane, these fill up with dirt and algae and become unsightly) With large pane toughened glass, you get a greenhouse that looks far neater, is easier to keep clean, and of course is safer.
Your new greenhouse is designed to give you enjoyment for many years. For piece of mind, all our greenhouses have a free 10-year frame guarantee. This valuable guarantee against any manufacturing faults also extends to your choice of metal base and powdercoated coloured finish.
Exclusions include moving parts, glazing, wind and accidental damage.
The roof vents on this greenhouse open automatically. They don't require batteries, working from heat expansion alone.
A cylinder filled with a special wax expends with heat, driving a piston and opening the vent for you.
They can be adjusted to open more or less according to what environment you need to create in the greenhouse.
Propably the best ever invention for greenhouses, they help prevent overheating, scorching and wilting - a must for any greenhouse!
