If it’s your dream to grow prize-winning blooms, or simply to experience the pleasure of taking fresh vegetables directly from garden to stove, you need look no further than the Simplicity Classic, when considering the purchase of your first greenhouse.
The aptly named Classic outsells many of its rival brands, not only due to its sensible pricing, but also the sheer quality and superior strength of its frame, with its unique double box section corner bars. Every consideration has been made in the design of this model; literally from the ground up, as it comes with a strong 4 inch galvanised base, allowing you to site your greenhouse on practically any surface. The rigidity of the building is improved further, by the inclusion of 3mm toughened safety glass, which comes as standard throughout, and is retained by sturdy full length PVC bar capping; which is far stronger than any standard glazing clips.
This Ultimate Package includes a whole host of extras, giving you everything you need to get you started. No need to worry about ventilation during those hot summer months, as this package gives you an additional roof vent (dependent on greenhouse size) complete with an automatic opener, which, when combined with the louvre vent supplied, provides your greenhouse with perfect airflow. It is also supplied with down pipes, end stops and angled joints, which clip directly into the Classic’s integral guttering. Simply add an optional water butt or two, and you can harvest plenty of precious rainwater. Finally, this Ultimate Package comes with a complete run of Babbington staging, down one side. Made of thick gauge aluminium, the frame supports 1 inch deep trays, giving you a stable working surface, which has folded edges for safety.
So there you have it. The Simplicity Classic. The Ultimate Package. All you need to provide yourself are a set of green fingers and an unlimited imagination.

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.
Q. What is the height of the base unit without the legs?
Q. Please can you tell me what size base I would need to have this greenhouse placed on, is it fully sealed with having a metal base, do you errect and if so what would be the total cost for supply & errect. Thanks Mike
A. As a minimum foundation for the Simplicity Classic Mill 68 **Mill Package**, you wold require 7'x 9' paving slabs. The metal base would be fixed to the foundations with rawlplugs and screws. All customers that order a greenhouse from us receive a list of approved greenhouse fitters. The approx. cost of fitting on a pre-existing level foudation would be expected to be around £175.
Q. How long is delivery on this greenhouse?
A. Delivery is currently 3-5 weeks, but is more likely to be 3 than 5. We will contact you before delivery to confirm an exact date with you.
Q. Planning to build a breeze block plinth 100mm deep (on hardcore sub- base) to support metal base. Appreciate measurements need to be accurate.
(1) Does metal base have to be flush with edge of breeze block or can metal base sit on middle of breeze block?
(2) I assume Simplicity Concrete anchoring set will be suitable?
(3) Side of greenhouse will be situated alongside fencing. Is there a minimum gap between greenhouse and fence to erect greenhouse?
A. Hello, the metal base can go in the middle of the breeze blocks if your wanting a small perimeter around the greenhouse or to the edge if not. The concrete anchoring set gives you 2 inch screws, rawl plugs and brackets that attach on the inside cill of the base to screw down into your flooring. As the glass has to be fitted from the outside we usually advise a persons width for if you ever need to replace a pane of glass.
