This greenhouse is one of our more robust models. We probably make less than 1000 of these a year here in the UK. As a result, we use a thicker metal extrusion throughout the frame work. Currently we have an offer on a 6x8 Classic greenhouse at £499 which is a fantastic price, this means that this greenhouse is often overlooked. In actual fact, this greenhouse is even better value for money that the 6x8 Classic model. It is up to 30% bigger in volume thanks to its high eaves, and its base is green as standard (normally £40 upgrade on the classic). Take in to account this greenhouse has more aluminium in the framework - it all adds up to what is probably the best value greenhouse on this website.
If your after a greenhouse that is well made, robust, comfortable to work in and attractive to look at, then this is the greenhouse you should buy. The next step up is the Hercules Trafalgar, which costs £1000. Quite simply this is the best 6'x8' greenhouse on the market for less than £1000.
We are only doing a limit run of these greenhouses at this price. Buy now to ensure you don't miss out.
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.
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.

Greenhouses can be far better looking these days than they ever used to be. You can now pick any of our range in an attractive coloured powder coated finish, so now a greenhouse can be the centrepiece of your garden.
This has a matching green base.
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.
These handy devices open vents automatically and don't require batteries, working from heat alone.
Also, they tend to allow the vent to open more than a conventional manual opener, equaling better ventilation.
The extra height gives you a better atmosphere for your plants and more headroom for your plants—and for you!
