Vitavia Greenhouse

Vitavia greenhouses have become first choice for gardeners who want a quality product at an affordable price.

All their greenhouses feature powder coated green or anodised aluminium frames that remain pristine and resistant to corrosion. There are integral gutters and vents on all models together with corner braces for added strength. 

The Planets Suite

The Vitavia 'Venus', at 6ft 4ins wide and available in five sizes up to 12ft, is a great all rounder, meeting the needs of both hobby and more experienced gardeners. Accessed by a single sliding door that can be positioned on either side, ventilation is through one or two roof vents depending on the model.

Attractive curved eaves allow for greater growing height in the Vitavia 'Orion'. The curved sections are made from UV protected acrylic panelsand there are two versions, 6ft square and 8ft x 6ft, both with a smooth action sliding door and roof vent.

Wider at 8ft 5ins and again with elegant curved eaves, the ‘Saturn’ has easy access double doors and up to four roof vents that provide excellent air circulation. Five sizes vary in length from 6ft to 14ft to satisfy the needs of most keen gardeners.

'Jupiter' is the premium Vitavia greenhouse, 8ft 5ins wide and with four versions up to 14ft, high eaves offer excellent headroom and perhaps all the growing space required by enthusiastic gardeners. Corner plates and braces add strength to this impressive structure.

The ‘Neptune’ has similar specifications but with a single sliding door. A robust and practical greenhouse, the eaves are slightly shallower but still higher than many similarly sized competitors.

King Of Greenhouses

Largest of the Vitavia greenhouses is the 'Zeus' which is designed for passionate gardeners and semi-professionals. 8ft wide and up to 20ft long it features extra long glass panes and 10mm polycarbonate roof panels that minimise both heat loss and condensation. The eaves are an imposing 6ft 2ins high, offering an extraordinary amount of working space and the lockable stable door offers useful ventilation control. There is an integral base and the frame is strong enough to be installed directly onto a flat surface.

The 'Sirius' Vitavia greenhouse is seriously beautiful, designed in a very different ‘orangery’ style. With many fine features, the eaves are over 5ft tall, there’s double doors, a matching steel base, downpipes and four roof vents included as standard. A new rubber capping system keeps the glazing in place and the finish can be silver, aluminium or black.

Completing the range is the 'Hera' garden room, a circular glazed structure in two sizes with room enough to relax and to grow plants. There are also the 'Ida' lean-to greenhouses, perfect if you have limited space and the larger ‘Helena’ models that can be used as both greenhouse or conservatory.

As Vitavia say themselves, “Above all, the greatest joy of owning a greenhouse is that feeling of stepping into your own private world, leaving the weather and your worries behind you”. Buy one of their superb range of greenhouses and it is liable to become a ‘way of life’.

How Easy Is It To Keep Chickens In The Garden?

All you need to keep chickens in your garden is a coop or hen house and an enclosed run. The coop can be built to your own specifications, other garden buildings such as a shed can be converted and re-purposed as a coop, or most people purchase one that is either ready built or that needs assembling. A run can be an integral part of the coop's design or you can construct one using wire mesh.
