The Simplicity Stramshall is a robust greenhouse that benefits from years of refinement. At the lower end of the market in terms of price, it is actually more a 'mid level greenhouse' in terms of the quality of the manufacturing and the thickness of the materials used.
NOTE: this greenhouse has the option of bar capping which is not normally found with greenhouses in this price range
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. This is one of the strongest greenhouses on the market today for less than £750.
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.

I bought this greenhouse last year (8*6 Simplicity Stramshall (Green) and delivery and service was excellent. The instructions that arrived before the greenhouse was delivered were very welcome and informative. Took a bit of time but it did all go together flawlessly. Easily 5 stars for service and quality
Just finished constructing this greenhouse. On the whole I am very pleased, Its well constructed and the manual is very good when you get used to it. There were a few issues. Mine was a green greenhouse and the spray of the paint meant that the channel one is trying to slot the opening windows into(2) have paint in them and this means pushing the window home is very hard. I spent a couple of hours with a wooden mallet nudgung them in place. They did get home eventually. The Louvre vents supplied have bolts that are not quite compatible with the simplicity - slightly too wide. It is also very difficult to get the brackets in place. I solved the problem using a couple of nuts of my own which happend to be about the right length a fiddly process but possible. The door works well but I had to change the way the struts were orientated - to be fair there is a warning in the manual. The door is the trickiest part of the greenhouse to construct I had to take it apart a couple of times and reconstruct. Its a testimoney to the construction that this is possible. My door tips are: the door hand should be fitted after it is in place, and it does matter about not having the diagonal struts on the same nut as the door handle/ On the first day we (two) managed to put the frame together. On the second day I glazed the unit by myself, and on the third day I put the opening windows vents and door in place. The finished product is very good. It is robust and is as described. I guess any product is going to have a few minor design issues and I would not let my criticisms put you off. I am very pleased and I think its a fine acquisition for my new garden.
