The Simplicity Shugborough is based on the Stramshall greenhouse, offering a higher eaves height.
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
Comes with toughened safety glass, as standard, held in by quality steel band glazing clips.
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.
Q. is there an option to have door t both ends?
and if so what would the extra cost be?
A. Hello, unfortunately on that model you can't add an extra door.
Q. Will position greenhouse with fencing bordering 2 sides.
1) Is there a recommended minimum distance between fence and greenhouse?
2) Can greenhouse and glass be assembled and lifted onto concrete base?
A. Hello, if you ever need to replace a pane of glass this will need to be done from the outside so we say enough room so that someone can fit down there to replace any glass. Usually if people move the greenhouse they wouldn't glaze it. They would build the frame and then 2-3 people would lift it and move it into position. Once the glass is in place it become very heavy and difficult to then move.
