The Forest Log and Tool Store is a handsome garden structure and, now that winter is approaching, a very useful acquisition. Martyn Loach purchased one recently and here he explains how it is assembled.
Despite the gloomy economic outlook, Vitavia remains optimistic about the future of the greenhouse market in the UK.
A positive approach and total commitment to customer care has seen Vitavia become established as one of the leading suppliers of hobby greenhouses in the UK. Building on their success, Vitavia have launched several new models for 2013 along side their existing greenhouses.
3 new larger models of the Ida Wall Garden lean-to have been launched to compliment the existing range. The new Ida's are all 2m (6 feet) deep with 3 longer width options. Available in adonised aluminium. the new Idas have double doors which can be positioned in the front of the building or separated as single doors in both sides. The new Ida's also come with 6mm polycarbonate roof panels.
A lean-to sited against a sunny wall is ideal for keeping you and/or your plants warm for long after sunset as the greenhouse retains the warmth from the wall during most of the evening.
The Helena is an attractive structure that can be used as a greenhouse or conservatory, which is always popular with our customers. The strong, tall and elegant adonised aluminium profiles allow in lots of daylight. Large lockable double doors can be positioned in the sides or at the front. It is glazed with full length glass side panels and 10mm polycarbonate roof panels, together with an integral base.
The Vitavia range of traditional 8ft wide greenhouses has been enhanced by the Zeus, a semi-professional greenhouses that offer space of 8.1m2 to 15.7m2. Designed for the passionate hobby gardener, this strong and beautiful greenhouse has an impressive eaves height of 1.89m (6ft 2in), offering an extraordinary amount of working space and the long pane float glass provides a particularly elegant appearance.
The Zeus also benefits from an extra strong frame which means it can be installed directly onto a flat surface without a base plinth. A lockable stable door equipped with strong fixings provides additional ventilation options without having to expose plants to cold drafts. The polycarbonate roof minimises heat loss and reduces condensation.
At Halls Garden Supplies, we have enjoyed a long relationship with Vitavia selling their products online at www.Gardensite.co.uk and in store in our Birmingham based Garden Centres.
We look forward to working with them again in 2013 to sell the 6ft wide range of Venus and Orion greenhouses, the 8ft wide Zeus, Saturn and Jupiter greenhouses, the Ida and Helena Lean-To's, the Hera Garden Room and the Sirius Orangery.
Details of these products and the existing range can be found on our website or by calling our Vitavia greenhouse team on 0121 355 7701.
Vitavia have over 30 years' experience in the greenhouse market and all products are manufactured in a dedicated Vitavia factory under strict guidelines.
Vitavia mean 'the way of life' and for many people growing your own with Vitavia has become a very rewarding way of life.
Our garden centre has been part of the local community for over 60 years, so when one of our partners, David Coton, received a request to donate a Christmas tree to a nearby hospice, he had no hesitation in helping them out.
Many people believe that Christmas would not have the same festive feel without the scent of a 'real' Christmas tree. They're naturally fresh, giving off a lovely aroma, and here Martyn Loach gives advice on which ones to buy..
There's a huge selection of Premier Christmas Lights, and it's no wonder why they are market leaders judging by the variety and innovation that's on offer. This is Andy Taylor's guide to their range of top quality lights and decorations.
When purchasing a Christmas tree, you may or may not be aware that you're continuing a centuries old tradition that was enthusiastically adopted by the Victorians. An artificial tree as Andy Taylor explains is just a modern take on this age old practice.
