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. 

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). As standard the metal base is in plain galvanised metal colour, however you can upgrade to a matching green finish to perfect the look of your greenhouse

Also included in this package is large pane toughened safety glass, a louvre window for the rear, two automatic roof vent openers. This greenhouse is an ideal starter pack and is excellent value for money.

A. You will need to fix the galvanised steel base of the greenhouse to the slab foundation with rawlplugs and screws.


Q. Hi - I am interested in this greenhouse or something similar but won't be able to install / erect it myself. Do you offer an installation service as this is the only thing putting me off purchasing?

Look at other sites, this was by far the best value. Very nice product, easy to put up, spent a few hours sorting puting the panles together one night, then put frame together and glass in one day. Mangage to do it all without needing any help. I bought the bar capping, made fitting the glass easy.

Good value greenhouse, easily built with good instructions. I used the bar capping which was not as tight a fit as I would have liked.

A well made product with a high quality finish. It came complete with galvanized base, two automatic roof vents and one louvred vent. The assembly instructions were very good with clear illustrations for each stage. Assembly was straight forward as long as time was taken to study the instructions. Regarding glazing, the double sided adhesive foam was a bit tricky to apply being flimsy, a heavier grade would be better. The toughened glass was easy to handle as the heat tempering of the panes reduced the sharp edges and the clips which hold the glass in place were easy to fit. Two improvements would be the use of higher grade aluminium nuts and bolts as it was easy to overtighten causing either the bolt to break or the thread to strip. Also the addition of an inside door handle would be an advantage. A very good well made greenhouse at a very reasonable price.

  • Simplicity Auto louvre opener

    £32.00
    Simplicity Auto louvre opener

    This mechanical device is designed to automatically open and close a louvre vent, in response to temperature. A wax-like substance, contained in the cylinder, expands with heat, operating a piston which opens the louvre via a linkage arm. As the temperature falls, the process reverses, and a spring closes the louvre. There is also an adjustment knob, which enables the opening temperature to be altered to between 15 and 25 degrees centigrade.

    Some simple drilling is required to fit the opener to the side of the louvre vent.

    £89.00
    Simplicity Bar Capping set (Old Cottage Green) for Classic 8ft
    Bar Capping

    This capping will only fit Simplicity brand greenhouses

    IMPORTANT: Bar Capping will only fit toughened glass, it will not fit normal horticultural glass. 
    All glass on this model is held in place with stainless steel clips. These are fine, but they can show up against a green frame and your glass can sometimes be a bit vulnerable in high winds. So now you can replace these clips with the optional bar capping System.This is a set of full length PVC strips which hold the glass along the full length.This gives a far neater finish plus it is a lot easier to keep clean because the clips are no longer used. Your whole greenhouse is stronger in the wind when bar capping is used. The capping is a similar shape to the stainless steel clip and it clips in,in a similar way- the difference being that the PVC is the full length e.g. 5' long).You can only use bar capping with the whole sheet toughened glass.

    This British made staging is extremely strong and is very versatile due to its size.

    Please not that the size given is nominal and in actual fact this staging comes up slightly smaller than 2' so that it can sit within a 2' wide space or greenhouse. All Caverswall staging is delivered flat packed for self assembly, however full instructions are supplied.

    The height of this Staging is 930mm/3'1" high

    £58.00
    Simplicity Old Cottage Green metal greenhouse base 6ft x 8ft (1920mm x 2538mm) Upgrade

    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 10?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 6?by 8?.
    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.
