Which Greenhouse To Buy?
Greenhouses cost a lot of money, often over £1,000. And of course once a greenhouse is installed in your garden, it's not an easy thing to remove it and put a different one in its place. With this in mind, it's worth taking your time and researching which is the best greenhouse to suit your needs before you spend your hard-earned money.

It is crucial that the greenhouse base is level in all directions for the safety and longevity of the building, therefore why not take advantage of our Base Preparation Service too!

 

Top tips on where to site your greenhouse
Here are some key points to consider:

The greenhouse should be sited where there is plenty of light, but not exposed to high winds. A sheltered spot is good, but avoid placing it under trees.

There needs to be access space around the greenhouse for cleaning, as well as room for acclimatising greenhouse-raised plants to the outside (eg space for a cold frame).

A heated greenhouse gives more scope for raising a wider range of seeds and cuttings earlier in the season. The nearer the greenhouse is to the house the more economical it will be to get electricity to it. You must, by law, hire a professional electrician to do this.

In practice, there are probably only one or two suitable places in your garden, so the size of greenhouse you opt for will be limited by the available space - which is why most people end up with a small one!
