When you're constrained for space to locate a greenhouse in your garden and can't quite fit in a 6' wide model, then the Stafford is the answer. At 5'3" wide it has a stocky appearance and its proportions probably make the Stafford one of the strongest greenhouses in the Simplicity range.The Stafford now has a 2' wide double door and has a good eaves height of 5'4"*.

Compared to other greenhouses, Simplicity greenhouses are manufactured in relatively small numbers here in the UK. Only a select few agents are given permission to sell these greenhouses. 
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.
 
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

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.

Very happy with the communication, delivery and the support from the office regarding a couple of minor issues - which were resolved quickly and to my complete satisfaction. Good quality parts and fixings which fitted together as described in the instructions. I completed the build on my own, which for the most part is easy enough as long as you take your time and follow the instructions. Though on a couple of occasions an extra pair of hands would have been welcome. I opted for toughened glass with the Bar Capping; glad I did as it looks good once finished and it just seems like a more solid way to put the GH together. The lourve and vent with auto opener were easy to fit - and the AO seems to work well. Also bought the 6' Babbington stand which fits well down one side; and the 5 tier seed tray, both of which are of good quality material and fixings. I mounted the GH on 3" sq fencepost as I wanted additional height and it also offers a good solid base for the GH to rest. Overall very pleased and would happily recommend The GH People and the Stafford GH - I've no doubt it will offer many years of good service.

The instructions and advice were fierce enough to make me read them carefully and follow it closely. So in spite of terrible weather the greenhouse went up square and upright and solid as a rock. The only problem I had was with the vent window - it simply would not latch into the hinge channel. So I dismantled it, slid the hinge piece in from the front and re-assembled the window from the outside. I needed minimal help - just someone to support the first two frame sections while bolting them together and to hold the roof windows from the inside to slide them into place. I am extremely pleased. Kind regards to the other Anthony who delivered the kit.

Went together nicely, I was able to construct the framework single-handed. Looks really good in the green, too, especially with bar capping. Auto opener and louvre vent have been a boon on hot days. The included staging is fine and fits with a bit of room at either end. Had to stretch my budget but you definitely get what you pay for and this will probably outlast me!

Couldn't be more pleased, excellent greenhouse. We only have a small garden and it doesn't look out of place and is surprisingly roomy. Couple of parts sent incorrectly in original shipment which delayed putting it up for a week, but dealt with swiftly and without fuss from customer services. Also had a query on the instructions which was clarified easily with one phone call

Went up far easier than I had expected - built the frame in an afternoon and easily got it glazed (toughened glass)the next day. The instructions weren't quite clear on how to install the opening window and I failed to spot one or two places in the apex where I should have put packing strip and bar capping.

  • Simplicity Auto louvre opener

    More information
    £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.

    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.
