An Elite Compact 4ft 3ins x 8ft 5ins greenhouse is light and spacious, just ready to be filled with colourful plants and lots of produce.

Undoubtedly well appointed with a high ridge and eaves, it has a series of features that you may only find in larger more expensive greenhouses. 

Easy entry is through wide double doors and the low threshold is particularly welcome. There's a strong, rigid, aluminium frame above an integral built-in base, so the structure is easily assembled and more than able to stand up to bad weather.

Questions and Answers (1)

Neil Kitchen Asked:

Does this greenhouse come flat packed and is delivered onto my drive way? Can I self-assemble? Do I need any special tools? How does the glass fit into the frame (the place I have ear marked for the greenhouse goes up against a fence so would be impossible to fit glass from outside)? Does the greenhouse have a base and how does it anchor to the floor? What is the earliest date for delivery to the Wirral?

We Replied:

Dear Neil, Thank you for your question. This item is delivered flat packed to your driveway.It is possible to assemble this greenhouse yourself you will only require a basic tool kit to do so. However, you would need to leave a 2ft gap around the greenhouse as glass needs to be fitted from the outside. This greenhouse has an integral base and can be anchored down to a suitable platform. Delivery is usually 4-6 weeks for a plain aluminium building and 6-8 weeks for the powder coated finish. Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us on 01213557701. Kind regards, Luke
