Plastic Greenhouses

Plastic Greenhouses

Also called polycarbonate greenhouses, plastic greenhouses are great when you want something a bit more lightweight or perhaps you don't want glass panels that could be hit by errant footballs. They're just as hard-wearing as glass, shatterproof, and the panels are cheaper to replace, all while providing the same protections as a traditional greenhouse with openable windows too.

Plastic polycarbonate glazing can withstand force while also offering protection from UV rays while letting in warmth and sunlight.

Plastic Greenhouse FAQs

  • What is the best polycarbonate or plastic greenhouse to buy?

    This can largely depend on what you want from your polycarbonate or plastic greenhouse, and how much space you have. There is no right or wrong purchase, just make sure it suits your needs.

    If you have limited space, a lean-to might be the best option as it can be placed next to a fence or wall so it doesn't eat up unnecessary room. A heated house can also offer additional insulation! 

    Do you want your plastic greenhouse to be a focal point of your garden? Then a freestanding one may be the best option for you.

    You can choose between an aluminium or wooden frame depending on the style you want and whether it will be more of a permanent fixture. Wooden is a more classic option while it is harder to take down and put back up and aluminium is more contemporary and low maintenance.

  • Do plastic greenhouses work?

    Because of the polycarbonate material of the glazing, plastic greenhouses can offer better insulation as less heat escapes from plastic than it does glass. They are also cheaper and more durable than glass, so if there's a risk it might break or be too costly to fix a glasshouse, polycarbonate may be your best bet.

    These types of greenhouses are perfect for growing vegetable seeds and plants by creating the perfect warm climate and safe environment for them to flourish.
  • How long does a plastic greenhouse last?

    All of our plastic greenhouses are high-quality and designed to stand the test of time in all weather conditions. You can expect yours to last around 10 years. Our products also come with 5-year warranty in the event things break sooner than expected.
