TWIN WALL POLYCARBONATE: Twin wall polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable and very practical. With small children or pets around polycarbonate greenhouses are safer. Polycarbonate is also safer to handle during installation. Polycarbonate greenhouses provide a similar growing environment to glass greenhouses with better insulation properties and reduced glare. Polycarbonate also provides good insulation from frost and maintains a more even temperature for better plant growth. Twin wall polycarbonate also diffuses light to prevent scorching. Twin wall polycarbonate glazing is stronger than the flimsy single skin polycarbonate sheeting supplied with some greenhouses.
POWDER COATED ALUMINIUM: The powder coated finish is more attractive than the stark silver finish aluminium greenhouses. The tough finish also has excellent weathering properties and retains its gloss and colour superbly. A good example of powder coating is the finish on your washing machine. Powder coated aluminium greenhouses have a similar finish.
BASE PLINTH: The base plinth makes installation much easier. It is designed to be a portable and prefabricated foundation beam. The plinth features a flat underside to spread the weight of the greenhouse over a larger area. The base plinth can be placed on any flat and level surface including soil, gravel, decking, concrete or paving slabs. It is best to prepare a perimeter footing of concrete or paving slabs for the base plinth to stand on. However, with care the base plinth can be placed on any surface including soil or gravel provided that the ground is flat and level.
GREENHOUSE LOCATION: Ideally your greenhouse should have a clear space at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. This ensures easy access for both installation and future maintenance. In reality this is often not practical and at many sites it is not needed. A reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. You should cut back or remove any nearby shrubs and trees. Remember to allow for future growth. Ideally the ridge of a greenhouse should run from east to west. The best position for a freestanding greenhouse is a sunny spot outside the shadow of nearby buildings and trees. A sheltered position is best otherwise additional screening may be advisable. Polycarbonate glazing is not recommended at exposed sites. Plants need plenty of water so your greenhouse should be close to a water supply and the site should be well drained.
SIZES - LENGTH AND WIDTH: The external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the length. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear including the door wall. The length refers to the side walls.

GREENHOUSE ACCESSORIES - ALWAYS IN STOCK: As a specialist greenhouse supplier, established since 1981, we pride ourselves on supplying more options and accessories than other suppliers. All of our greenhouse accessories are always in stock all the time. Many accesories are only available when you buy the greenhouse and not available separately. However, we always make an exception for one of our customers - if you purchased your greenhouse from us we will always supply any accessory you need at any time, even many years afterwards.
BASE ANCHOR FIXING KITS - FOR SOIL OR CONCRETE: This kit makes it easy to fix your greenhouse down securely into concrete, paving slabs, decking or even soil. The brackets are profiled to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth with fixing holes on the inside. The brackets are fixed from inside the greenhouse with coach screws fixed down into the concrete, paving slabs or decking. If you want to site your greenhouse on soil you will need a concrete trench around the perimeter or smaller pockets of concrete into which the brackets can be fixed. You can fix the base plinth down with screws and wall plugs but it is much easier with our profiled brackets. Fixing the greenhouse down is recommended at all sites. The kit includes:
- Profiled anchor brackets - shaped to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth, with predrilled fixing holes
- Masonry drill bit - used to drill the correct size hole in concrete or paving slabs
- Zinc plated coachscrews - supplied complete with washers and plugs to ensure a neat easy fit
VENTILATION: Improved ventilation increases the air circulation through the greenhouse for better growing results. Automatic openers react to heat which ensures that in hot weather the vents open in your absence and then close again when its cooler. Louvred ventilators provide a healthy air flow through the greenhouse to ensure improved growing conditions and better crops. Some plants such as alpines require more ventilation than others. If you are not yet sure which plants you are likely to grow improved ventilation will give you more versatility.
HEATERS: We offer a huge range of heaters so whatever your specific requirements we have a heater to do the job. Our electric heaters require a standard domestic 13 amp electricity supply. Our propane gas heaters require permanent trickle ventilation when in use. As an approximate guide, a 3kw heater will heat a greenhouse up to 8'x12' or provide frost protection only up to 10'x15' in normal site conditions. A 1.5kw heater will normally heat a greenhouse up to 6'x8' or provide frost protection only up to 6'x12'. Internal partitions are often used in large greenhouses to create a smaller warm room which is cheaper and easier to heat.
HEATING REQUIREMENTS: Heating requirements vary for several reasons. Location is one factor with more heating required in Scotland than in southern England and less heating required in a sheltered position. The design is also a factor. For example, dwarf walls improve the insulation and lean to greenhouses absorb warmth from the existing wall. Another factor is the materials used. Polycarbonate greenhouses retain heat better than glass and wooden greenhouses retain heat better than metal greenhouses. We recommend you to buy a bigger heater than you need - you can always turn it down.
POLYPROPYLENE FLOOR TILES: A durable polypropylene floor or footpath is an affordable alternative to slabs or concrete. Easy to install within a few minutes, these interlocking polypropylene pavers simply click together with no fixings needed. Unlike slabs or concrete these pavers are lightweight, easy to install and fully relocatable. Designed to spread weight, the finished floor is capable of supporting 36 tonnes per square metre. First the ground is levelled and then the pavers are laid directly on the soil. The pavers can also be laid on grass, sand or gravel. The finished floor or footpath is self draining and suitable for wheelbarrows and wheelchairs. It fits comfortably inside the greenhouse with a few inches to spare. The tiles are easily prised apart by folding so the floor is even quicker to remove if required.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are happy to hear that you are pleased with your purchase.
The best place to fit the louvre vent is in the centre of the rear wall at the bottom. To do this you need to remove panel 8 and cut it down with a sharp craft knife to fit the gap above the louvre blades after you have installed the louvre kit.
The dimensions of the louvre are in the separate instructions supplied with it. These also advise on the relatively simple task of fitting the blades in the louvre mechanisms and fitting those to the greenhouse frame. I have attached a copy of these to assist.

I received my order of an Aluminium Greenhouse 025 last week and have had sucess assembling it! I am very happy with the product. However, I cannot work out how to install the louvre vent that I purchased in the optional extras. I would be grateful if you could advise me where it is to be positioned and how to fit it. Many thanks, David

It arrived today at midday. What a service!
Tom, Sutton Scotney, Hampshire, SO21, 6x6 Greenhouse 025, 26th September 2016
Greenhouse arrived safely yesterday and appears to be all there.
Started erecting it today (with a bit of head scratching), can you tell me if the bolts go on the inside and the nuts on the outside, or is it the other way round? If the nuts go on the inside will they catch on the glazing?
Could do with a little bit of script with the instructions to let us know which way round the pieces go, or are we just being thick.
Other than the above, everything is nicely number and we think we have it together ready to put up tomorrow. Assuming all the nuts and bolts don't have to be turned round.
So far, thank you for an excellent service.
Valerie, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, NR29, 6x6 Greenhouse 025, 23rd March 2016
As per your phone call of 10 minutes ago,
My husband assured me he had searched for the parts and they definitely were not there. After your call and describing what they should look like, I personally checked and as if by magic there they were staring up at me with the part number on, 4 right angled foot long spurs with 2 holes in each.
I can only aplogise on behalf of my husband who is due an ear-bashing as soon as he arrives home from work.
All i can say is if I want something done correctly seems I have to do it myself.
Thank you for your time and patience

Hi, with my sons help we have just built your polycarbonate greenhouse 025. I am really pleased with it, but must say, the build instruction were totally inadequate! We eventually figured them out but have quite a few things over, which is quite worrying! We think we have put everything in, in fact we really can't figure out where these pieces go! Well done for a good product, but you really have to improve on the build instructions!
Mary, Dartford, Kent, DA1, 6x8 Greenhouse 025, 27th February 2016
Hi, I am very please with the purchase of my Aluminium Green Polycarbonate Greenhouse,with Base Included free, 6'x6' and our agreed delivery date & time.
However, I am still in the process of erecting the frame as the instructions are more difficult to follow than the Ikea flat packs - it has taken me more than 300 minutes (i.e 5 hours) to work out 'what is what' and 'what goes where' with your little diagrams on the side.
It would be helpful,for me, if there were some succinct instructions beneath each of these diagrams.
Nevetheless, I am enjoying solving this brainteaser and hope to get this project completed this weekend.
Joe, Winterbourne, Bristol, BS36, 6x6 Greenhouse 025, 25th February 2016
Thanks for your help, after a bit of a chat with the carrier we finally have our greenhouse. Would definitely use your Company again.
