Why a Lacewing Traditional Greenhouse?

This Lacewing greenhouse is from our Traditional range, which means it offers you a classic greenhouse with great strength and robustness. The Traditional range features a sturdy aluminium frame and 4mm thick PC sheets, with even greater durability than our Essential range. 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 5 year warranty on the high quality polycarbonate sheets.

The greenhouse features a sturdy 1.5mm 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
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).
Galvanised steel base available as an optional extra - provides stability and makes your greenhouse last even longer.

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 to purchase greenhouse staging?

Greenhouse staging is a highly convenient addition to your greenhouse - it will help to keep everything neat and organised and save precious space. High quality Lacewing greenhouse staging is available as an optional extra in the boxes below. The top shelf of our Essential staging can hold up to 30kg. It is made from galvanised steel, which is durable and strong, yet lightweight and easily portable. Our Traditional staging is made from rustproof aluminium and galvanised steel.

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

"I have read previous reviews prior to purchase,some I was aware it takes time. Due to going away I needed it up in already had a concrete block base and wood for it to sit on all level. I am mechanically minded and got it up in about eight hours on my own except for now and again for wife to support an opposite end. This was also done in pouring rain. However it is recommended to go through all instructions prior to installation. They are not too clear I found I had to undo some bolts to insert others. But we've just had an heavy storm and it has held out well. I would say during assembly you wonder if any good but when erect correctly it is a good solid greenhouse and excellent value."
