Why a Lacewing Essential Greenhouse?

This Lacewing greenhouse is from our Essential range, which is a great choice for a first greenhouse, offering exceptional quality at an amazing price. The Essential range features sturdy aluminium frame and 4mm thick PC sheets, and comes complete with a galvanised steel base. Our greenhouses offer the flexibility of installing the door to slide to the left or to the right, allowing you the choice of which way you want the door to open. Even the roof vent can go on either side, for extra flexibility. This greenhouse also features a 2 year warranty on the high quality polycarbonate sheets.

The greenhouse features a sturdy 1mm thick aluminium frame with reinforced corner braces, providing extra stability.
The roof vents allow air circulation on hot days as well as pollinating insects to enter and exit the greenhouse (automatic vents available to purchase separately).
This greenhouse has been designed with a sliding door that can opened as needed for ventilation without having to worry about it banging in the wind

Do I need a vent arm?

Ventilation and temperature are highly important factors in maintaining the ideal growing environment in your greenhouse. An automated vent arm is highly useful for any greenhouse owner, as it helps to regulate these factors. This vent arm will automatically open the window when the temperature reaches your desired level, and will close again when the temperature drops. It is adjustable, and doesn't require electricity, which means no running costs.

Benefits of a vent arm

  • Adjustable temperature range
Optional Extras

Customer Reviews
Rating: 4/5

"I was filled with dread at the thought of erecting this greenhouse after reading the reviews. The instructions were a nightmare and things could be explained better!
For anyone reading this before purchasing, I would highly recommend that you ensure you prep every part before constructing ie:making sure you put the extra screws in-situ - this will help your marriage later on when you realise you have missed one and can not possibly get another one in. However, after many hours (possibly 10) we had the greenhouse built and secured on its base and I must say it looks fantastic and is very sturdy. Instructions would be good on attaching the greenhouse to the actual base, my Husband had his power drill out ready to screw it down , but I saved the day (as a wife often does - as we logically think and read instructions) and i had it secured within an hour using the correct clamps.
Overall - a challenge, very fiddly, but marvellous when built.
Must admit though - I wouldn't do it again :-)

"*** This item is suitable for Indoor use only *** my greenhouse which was tricky enough to build due to fairly poor instructions and couple of parts not machined with bolt holes, only last 24hrs before strong gust of wind pulled the retaining clips off the base and the whole frame then buckled. I used only the parts provided and followed instructions. Primrose accepted no liability as guarantee does not cover wind or storm damage. They are unable to advise what level of wind if any is covered so 2yr warranty is fairly useless. I would strongly avoid this product and query coverage of warranty if you still think its a bargain. I'm £200 out of pocket and left with useless pile of bent aluminium."

Reviewed Sunday, 7 February 2016

Primrose says: "Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that you had trouble with assembly and some of the parts. Customer care are always happy to help out, and we do provide a link to instructions which are significantly better than those packaged with the greenhouse, although it does seem that Storm Henry may have been somewhat more than a strong gust. Our guarantee covers manufacturing defects and workmanship, and I see from the notes that there doesn't appear to have been any attempt to contact us to get replacement parts prior to constructing the greenhouse.
