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

Do I need a water butt?

Our Deluxe greenhouses come equipped with a downpipe which is attached to the gutters. In order to collect water for your plants, a water butt can be attached to the bottom of the pipe. See opposite for our selection of water butts and spare downpipe.

Benefits of collecting rainwater

  • Convenient, economical method of collecting water for your plants
  • Recycling rainwater is environmentally friendly
Optional Extras
  • Standard Water Butt 120L

"Greenhouse went together fairly well. Took 2 of us 2 days. Instruction manual could be better as needed to take apart some sections already assembled in order to get next section to fit on more than one occasion. Could really do with some pictures from outside rather than all diagrams from inside, this would show what it should look loud better. Overall looks good. Handy to have some silicone sealant just to seal around glazing panels."

"The instructions need to be expanded as the steps don't make each action as clear as they need to be for construction without a practical understanding on installation. Having all parts with identification numbers is very helpful and a must."

"Unlike other reviewers I found the instruction booklet to be quite good, clear illustrations and written explanations in an easy to follow step by step format. However assembly is not easy and I would say nigh on impossible for one person. It is fiddly and frustrating, once the front and back are assembled (best to do this on level ground using a tarpaulin or similar to work on) the assembled sections must be joined by the roof ridges, here you will need two people, three would be better, to hold up the sections whilst the ridges are attached. It cannot be overstated just how important it is to have a COMPLETELY LEVEL AND SQUARE BASE! There are absolutely no tolerances built into the structure, it fits together exactly with no give in any direction, therefore if your base is not 100% spot on then panels will not fit and the door will not operate correctly. The provided base is satisfactory but the structure sits on it EXACTLY with no room for error in any direction. Mine is up and all fitted together ok, it is sufficient for my needs but I wouldn't buy this product again."

"Shocking quality and a very poor design. Instructions were worthless and very poorly written. Still leaks in various places, most of the polycarbonate panels are loose within the frame work."

"Went up well, but it's good to see when it rains. Invest in a tube of silicone sealant, because you need to seal the roof panels and the window at the bottom to get rain water to flow into the guttering. Two sets of end pieces for the guttering would be nice to be included instead of one set to use both to get into a water butt. These ends will need sealing too. Finally, I had to pack the door top runner wheels off 6mm to get the door a snug fit to the greenhouse frame. Get the base, not only doe's it give a sound foundation, it gives you an extra 6" which is good for the sides are low. Apart from these practical issues the greenhouse looks really well."
