Lacewing Greenhouse details
The 4mm thick polycarbonate panels block out 99.9% of the sun's harmful UV rays, increasing the development of plants. The PC panels are strong, shatterproof and help retain heat longer than glass, which makes them an ideal choice if you have children that are often playing in the area where the greenhouse is situated.
Gutters enable the collection and re-use of rainwater when used conjunction with water butt and rain water pipe (both sold separately).

Do I need a base?

In order to get the most out of your greenhouse, it is essential to invest in a firm, level foundation. This will provide extra stability, anchoring your greenhouse to the ground during bad weather. It will also ensure that the frame sits flat and level, allowing all the parts to fit together as they should. Most importantly, it will help your greenhouse to last for years longer by making it more secure and stable. To purchase our high quality galvanised steel base, please tick the box opposite and add it to your basket.

Benefits of a base

  • Provides a ready made, firm foundation for your greenhouse
  • Will ensure your greenhouse frame sits as it should, allowing the panels to fit correctly
  • Will dramatically extend the life of your greenhouse
  • Will act as an anchor for your greenhouse during windy or stormy weather
  • The foundations are as important as the base. Please click here for more info

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

  • Allows you to control the environment in your greenhouse even when you're not there
  • Adjustable temperature range

"Overall, as expected but instructions were a let down"

"I was impressed with the quality of the product but assume the recommended assembly time of 30mins was either a mistake or a joke. With the help of a neighbour and with both of us being no strangers to self assembly our total time spent amounted to over 12 hours. The instructions would have been more helpful written in Chinese and we would both be willing to pay money to see anybody assemble this product in the stated time. Regards."

"On calling for a little help with a couple of points when laying my base I was very impressed with the help and advice so if this continues when I start to erect the greenhouse at the end of the week I will be so pleased and grateful yours O Osborn"

"Erected the greenhouse on a Saturday. Two days later we exprienced 20mph winds and half the polycarbonate panels blew out and ended up down the garden. Had to dismantle the greenhouse to reassemble. This time I used silicone glazing sealent around all the panels and have spent another £50 on aluminium strip to put in extra bracing to stop the longer panels flexing. Perhaps the manufacturers should consider making the panels smaller to prevent this flexing. However having strengthened the panels it has now survived a 30mph gale intact. Also if you buy the base as well the greenhouse will not sit flat against a wall as it is intended. I had to put 1" battens all round. All round I would not buy another greenhouse from this company"
