The Hercules Blenheim range has all the features that help create the perfect greenhouse environment. Of equal importance, the structure has been specially designed to withstand adverse weather conditions, especially the wind.
All these new Hercules models include lots of roof vents (all automatic) and a suitable number of louvre side vents.
Hercules has more metal in the frame and has extra cantilever braces in the roof for strength. If you live in a windy area, Hercules is the greenhouse for you.
Good quality downpipes included. These full length pipes are included with every greenhouse and a 45 degree bend for you to easily run the down pipe into a water butt. A good range of extra bends and T pieces are also available.
All around the bottom of the greenhouse there is an 18" high pane of toughened glass - the idea of this is that if you ever flirt a stone up from a lawnmower etc and break a pane it is small, easy and cheap to replace.
All glass is held in with full length PVC 'bar capping' - This eliminates the traditional greenhouse clips and is far neater and stronger in the wind.
Hanging basket rails included: these full length rails are made from sturdy T-section and you can hang your baskets straight from them - making them easier to plant up and grow on.
Low level door threshold Many greenhouses on the market have a step at the door which can be inconvenient. This new Hercules has a level threshold which is ideal for wheelchair or wheelbarrow access - and no step for you.
This simple lock keeps the door closed in the wind and you can also lock it with a key if required.
Base advice :These new Hercules models come with a sturdy cill which can sit straight onto a variety of bases NO METAL BASE IS NEEDED.
Some greenhouse manufacturers advise that their greenhouses can go onto soil and be anchored in. Our advice is to avoid this. It may be OK to do that on a cheap small greenhouse, but on a greenhouse of this quality it doesn't pay long term to skimp on the base. Even using a metal base, soil can sink in time and upset the greenhouse.
A = Base width: 2,575mm (8ft5).
B = Length: 4,474mm (14ft8).
C = Eaves height: 1,670mm (5ft5).
D = Ridge height: 2,578mm (8ft5).
E = Door width: 2,575mm (8ft5).
F = Door height: 1,900mm (6ft2).
Q. do this greenhouse come with a base
A. Greenhouses with less metal in the main framework tend to need a metal base to add extra strength and rigidity to the whole structure. A base is simply not required on a Hercules due to the thickness of the extrusion and design of the building. This is one of the strongest greenhouses around, the frame will not twist and flex because it has no base.
Not having to use a base is an advantage! You don?t have to step into the greenhouse, perfect for wheelchair or wheel barrow access.

I bought my Hercules Blenheim 5 years ago and it is still as wonderful as ever.

May I say how delighted I am with the order and delivery of my Hercules Blenheim 8ft x 10ft. Right from initially ordering the brochure, to the order, and finally the delivery, all aspects showed fabulous customer service. I used one of your recommended installers, John Harper, who was a true professional, and should be marked as one of your starred top fitters. The greenhouse has exceeded my expectations, and I am very grateful. Thank you
What a great greenhouse, and excellent service with it. The instructions are lengthy but the system for putting it all together is very detailed and when you get your head around it. We had one broken pieces of glass and one missing, but no problem sending out replacement for next day delivery. Highly recommend
Love my new greenhouse, was going to go for a cheaper sliver colored one but glad i didn't. Its a good solid build with 3 openings and 2 vents and its a great size, i have 12/13 pots growing tomatoes and cucumbers on one side and 2 tables on the other side with plenty of room down the middle. The Greenhouse people were easy to contact, and delivered straight away a missing part and the delivery driver was a very nice man, i would deal with this company again without a doubt

Very good greenhouse. Second I've built, and you can really tell the improved quality in this one over the last one I built. Instructions were clear and the staff were helpful. Really pleased.
