OUR BEST SELLING POLYCARBONATE GREENHOUSES: These great value aluminium greenhouses have been our best selling polycarbonate greenhouses for many years. Twinwall polycarbonate and green powder coated aluminium are normally expensive extras but these affordable metal greenhouses include both at sensationally cheap prices. The precise manufacturing and careful packing is a match for our most expensive greenhouses. The competitive price and polycarbonate glazing makes this aluminium greenhouse a popular choice with first time buyers, the elderly and families with children or pets.
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 REQUIREMENTS: As with many metal greenhouses, this aluminium greenhouse is designed to overhang a base plinth which is above the ground and made to the correct external base size. A suitable metal base is available as a low cost option. An alternative base can be made using timber, metal, bricks or concrete. It should be made to the same size as the base plinth. The greenhouse cills are designed to overhang the base. In addition, the front cill is a guide for the sliding door. If this greenhouse is placed directly on an oversized patio the door will not open.
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 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.
BASE PLINTH - SAVE POUNDS: The base plinth is much cheaper if you buy it with the greenhouse compared with the price you pay to buy it later. This is because of transport costs. It is much cheaper for us to deliver everything you need in one delivery. Around 19 out of 20 people buy the base plinth so it is worth thinking about this before you order. If you need advice you can phone us 7 days a week on 01603 721590.
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.

I purchased my son a greenhouse from www.summergardenbuildings.co.uk on Sunday evening. I was a bit hesitant as I have never heard of this company.
I am impressed!
The website was clear and easy to use and the payment process straightforward.
I stupidly forgot to leave my email addy and someone from the company phoned first thing Monday to confirm the order and delivery day, and to ask if there was a safe place to leave the items if no-one was in.
The items arrived today (all present and correct).
So well done summergardenbuildings! and Thank You
PS the price was very reasonable and no delivery charge!

Just to say many thanks for your prompt delivery and service , having been let down previously by a company which took my money without delivering my order its good to know that there are some honest people out there. thanks again.
Mike, Colchester, Essex, CO4, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 28th October 2012
I felt I would like to write & tell you how satisfied I have been with my greenhouse & also the customer service. I ordered a greenhouse in March 2011, but after putting the order through, I decided I would prefer a larger sized one. The gentleman I spoke to was so understanding & didn't make me feel uncomfortable although I knew I must be causing extra work. A lady rang to check the time for delivery would be suitable and again I was impressed by her friendly helpful manner. I don't know if yours is a family firm, but it certainly has the feel of one.
This is the first greenhouse I have owned & I've been so pleased with it, and amazed how many plants I've been able to overwinter. I recommended you to friends & they bought the same one as me. I can assure any prospective customer that all the parts were in the box, and they will be pleased with the product.
Thank you again

John, Edenbridge, Kent, TN8, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 12th April 2012
Thank you for the recent Greenhouse that I purchased through yourself. On the whole, I am delighted with the product.
I wondered if you had any spares though as I was putting the rubber seal on the door, I broke on of the black plastic runners at the bottom of the door and the door is a little lopsided now. Trying to resolve this, I broke the screw head which secures the black plastic runner to the door side. If you have a few spare greenhouse nuts and bolts I would appreciate this.

Thanks again for excellent customer service. I shall be ordering some extras from you very soon
Jemma, Whitley Bay, NE25, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 26th March 2011
EXTRA NOTE:- AN EMAIL RECEIVED FROM THIS CUSTOMER ON 21st MARCH IS REPRODUCED BELOW:
I ordered 8x6 greenhouse from you on 14 feb 2011. We have just completed building it.
Unfortunately two small parts are broken - code E12 "door top". The rollers that fit to the top of the door.
I am therefore unable to use the greenhouse.
Could you please send some replacements?
Dear Summer Greenhouses.
I bought one of your Greenhouse and polycarbonate glazing delivered with optional base plinth early in February and due to unforseen circumstances have only erected it this week.
I have been extremely pleased with the greenhouse and the excellent service I recieved from your company. I have recommended you to my neighbour who decided she wanted a greenhouse when she saw mine!
I wanted to let you know that the M6 x 10 bolts and M6 nuts are of a very poor quality. They are so soft they shear off very easily and the nuts are difficult to get on. In the end I went to my local screwfix and replaced the lot. I don't know if you have had anyone else mention it, but I would much rather have paid �10 more for the greenhouse and saved lots of time and know it is fixed together well.
Samantha, Bolton, BL2, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 25th March 2011
EXTRA NOTE:- OUR REPLY DATED 26th MARCH IS REPRODUCED BELOW:
I'm sorry for the delay in our reply. We have been very busy. The nuts and bolts are standard greenhouse components which are made from alumnium and widely used. Most people are used to steel which is much harder. Aluminium bolts must not be overtightened or they will shear off - this often takes some getting used to! If required we are always happy to supply extra nuts and bolts free of charge. Some tougher alloy bolts have been developed recently which are more expensive but which are not yet in common use by the manufacturers. It may be that you found some of these but I'm writing in case you replaced the bolts with steel. You should be aware that steel and aluminium are incompatible so this could cause problems. Steel bolts should not be used in aluminium greenhouses. Thankyou for your kind comments about our product and service.
Just inadvertently sent a blank e mail please ignore! Last week I received my 8' x 6' greenhouse package order and wish to let you know how very pleased I am with it. have still to get the door hanging nicely but otherwise it's fine. I have also been very impressed with your staff's attention to detail regarding the delivery etc. Thanking you,
Nick, Husbands Bosworth, Leicestershire, LE17, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 18th March 2011
Just to say thank you for your customer service re the above order, excellent all round. A big thanks to a guy called John who rang me regards the base. Thank God he did and I purchased one, it was hard enough with and I would think twice as hard without.

my greenhouse was delivered today as promised, the package consisted of 2 long boxes and one almost larger sq box so 3 in all. I assume that is the total consignment. I am just letting you know this as I probably won't be opening packs for a wk or two.
thanks again for your very prompt and excellent service.

The greenhouse was erected without any difficulties and is now already full and looks superb - I should have ordered a bigger one. However, I appear to have lost some of the stopends which came with the rainwater collection accessory kit. Is it possible to order another set - �15 plus postage.

I have purchased one of your greenhouses with an auto roof vent. Having no problem erecting the greenhouse from your instructions i unfortunatly can not find the instructions for the auto vent.
I have installed the vent but i am unable to raise the tempature more than 60 degrees before the vent opens, is this correct or is there some adjustment i can make

Dear Mr (CUSTOMER NAME)
We are sales staff only on Sunday but hopefully I am able to answer your query. The automatic vent openers are normally adjustable. There are many types but for most the long cylinder can normally be "twizzled" round, one way to make it open more easily, the other way to make it open less. I hope I've answered your query but if not please phone our helpline. Lines are open from 9-5 on Monday-Friday.

Thanks thats great, and we like the word "twizzled"!!
Thank you for delivery of the greenhouse and base.

EXTRA NOTE:- LATER ON THE SAME DAY ANOTHER EMAIL WAS RECEIVED FROM THIS CUSTOMER WHICH IS REPRODUCED BELOW:
I should have added that I originally rang (SUPPLIER NAME) to order one of their greenhouses but they were so unhelpfull I aborted the order and rang you chaps for information on the greenhouse which I eventually ordered.The person with whom I spoke in your greenhouse section was so friendly and helpful (without trying to "push" me into an order) my wife and I decided to order from you online after we had discussed the options.
(SUPPLIER NAME)'s loss (and poor public relations) was your company's gain!
Many thanks for replacing damaged parts so quickly. My greenhouse is already full and looks great.
Julie, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, ST14, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 10th November 2008

Many thanks for contacting the manufacturer on my behalf regarding the missing screws in the staging packs.
Just to let you know I have this morning received a replacement pack from them so can now go ahead and build the stagings.
I greatly appreciate the help you offered in resolving this matter.

Doreen, Fareham, Hampshire, PO14, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 19th April 2008

Please continue to complete the order with the adjustment of a set of anchors
Murray, West Calder, West Lothian, EH55, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 15th April 2008
Took delivery, but have only been able to build the greenhouse this weekend (because of the poor weather).
Discovered the following parts were missing from the Polycarbonate Glazing package:
8 x Stainless Steel roof Glazing clips (J4-1)
21 x Stainless Steel general Glazing clips (J4-2)
6 x Stainless Steel door Glazing clips (J4-3)
Please could you arrange to send these clips so that I can finish erecting the greenhouse, which incidentally I found extremely easy to build with easy to follow instructions.
Pat, Arbroath, Angus, DD11, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 2nd March 2008
EXTRA NOTE:- THE MISSING PARTS WERE DISPATCHED 2nd MARCH 2008.
Good service, no problems erecting greenhouse, very satisfied with purchase
Lesley, Great Yarmouth, NR31, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 7th October 2007
Paul / Kerry,
Recieved delivery as requested, many thanks. The greenhouse is now fully constructed and is looking good. Unfortuately on attempting to construct the second heavy duty staging I noticed that there are two items missing 1 x K3-1 (Short Horizontal Strut) and screws No6 x 6mm (Item Code no;66).
Sorry about not noticing this in the first place, grateful if you could send parts so that I can complete construction, POC 01202 (PHONE NUMBER).
Pete, Broadstone, Dorset, BH18, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 23rd August 2007
Many thanks for the speedy delivery of the greenhouse - it arrived on Tuesday as agreed ! We have struggled with the instructions - as do most people - although the frame is now fully errected & we are filling in with the "glazing". Can we suggest that it would be great if the holes in the frame had already been drilled to go into the base as obviously all the other holes had been drilled & treated - just a suggestion ! However, great price & great service
Many thanks & regards
Diana and Chris, Liskeard, Cornwall, Pl14, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 7th May 2007
EXTRA NOTE:- UNFORTUNATELY THE HOLES CANNOT BE DRILLED IN ADVANCE BECAUSE THE EXACT POSITION OF FIXING HOLES VARIES FROM SITE TO SITE AND CARE IS REQUIRED ESPECIALLY WHEN FIXING INTO A BRICK BASE.
Thanks for the prompt service the greenhouse looks to be of good quality
