    Simplicity Extra plain aluminium roof vent
    If you require additional ventilation for your plain aluminium Simplicity greenhouse, we can supply an additional roof vent / vents. Good ventilation is essential to provide air circulation throughout the greenhouse which helps prevent fungal disease which can for example cause  'damping off' of seedlings.
    N.B. If you are ordering a new greenhouse the glass will be automatically adjusted to suit any additional ventilation selected.

This Clearance LE greenhouse is one of best sellers, and rightly so. Manufactured in the UK by the Greenhouse People, this greenhouse is good quality and designed to last. The gauge of the aluminium is the same as any other Simplicity building, and is as strong as any other greenhouse in the sub £1000 range. Hundreds have been sold, and has received more positive feedback than any other greenhouse.

The single door (an impressive 6'2" high) on this model means that you can make the best use of your space as you have 3' each side of the door which you can use for wider beds or wider staging- in a double door model, you often just end up with a wider path limiting growing space. In a 3' wide bed you could get two rows of Tomatoes or perhaps a run of tomatoes at the back and shorter peppers and chillies in front.

Q. Very windy area - what wind strength can greenhouse withstand.

A. This is possibly one of the strongest polycarbonate greenhouses on the market. The frame is robust and the polycarbonate is held in with bar capping, with makes the greenhouse particularly wind resistant. With any greenhouse we would recommend that you try and shelter it where ever possible. I understand that this is not always possible. I wouldn?t be able to say exactly what wind the greenhouse was able to withstand, but it would certainly have to be severe weather to cause damage.

Q. I'm interested in this greenhouse but like Mr Perkins in the Review I would like to be able to see out of the green house. Does the greenhouse have an option of having clear polycarbonate? What does the 'LE' stand for in the description LE Polycarbonate?

A. Good Morning, Unfortunately the only type of polycarbonate we can obtain for the greenhouses is 'twin walled' which is opaque. The 'LE' stands for low eaves. I hope that helps.

by terry perkins

excellent value greenhouse. Putting up was tricky; the instruction manual hard to decipher, but we managed. It took two experienced DIY enthusiasts more than the two days suggested, and long days at that, but it was worth it. The bar capping was very tricky to fit. very sore thumbs from pressing it into place, as any sort of tool marked the white plastic. This was one of the reasons it took longer to put together, however would not have been happy without the capping, as the ploycarb sheets are much more stable with it in place, and the overall look much smarter. Also it ended up perfectly square and everthing fit into place. One door panel was too small, but on reporting this, it was replaced within days. Excelent after sales service. We built on a double layer of cement blocks, and glad we did, as not very high otherwise, but depends what you want to grow. Would have prefered the option of clear polycard, rather than the tubular, as I would have liked a clear view out onto the allotment, and I know we will probably get moss growing in the tubes, but for the cost this is what you expect, and the panels can slowly be replaced if necesary. The frame feels strong enough to last. Overall great budget/starter greenhouse.
