Requesting a greenhouse without glass is one of the more unusual inquiries that our Marketing Department has received, but it was all in the cause of art and we were pleased to help out local designer Julian Bull create his latest installation.
Palram offer a 'world of outdoor solutions', and David Coton reports that their impressive range of polycarbonate structures, including gazebos and skylight sheds, will soon be available on Gardensite.
Polycarbonate is particularly strong, UV resistant, won't be affected by variations in temperature and is virtually unbreakable. It will not rot, rust or peel and is therefore entirely appropriate for use outdoors.
Palram have 50 years of experience in the manufacture of this highly durable material that is also used for greenhouses, cold frames, sun tunnels and car ports.
There is a selection of four 6ft wide skylight sheds, ranging from 3ft to 10ft in length, plus another that measures 4ft wide and 6ft long.
A unique feature is their skylight roof which has panels that transmit natural light during the day while appearing opaque from the outside. This offers both privacy and peace of mind as there is no need for vulnerable windows.
The cladding is reinforced by an aluminium frame, so will not fracture or bend. There's front and back air vents, an easy access ramp and inside an anti-slip floor. A lockable latch provides extra security.
Palram's Palermo Gazebo is an ideal place in which to entertain or dine under cover with family and friends. You could also be inventive, perhaps placing one over a hot tub and have a thoroughly relaxing time.
Similar to their other structures, the gazebo, that comes in two sizes, is maintenance free, sturdily constructed and can be anchored for extra stability. Clips allow you to fit curtains and other decorations, creating a very stylish addition to your garden.
Palram will certainly complement Gardensite's existing range of plastic sheds and storage solutions, and we very much looking forward to offering their high quality products to our customers.
Dazzling with colourful interest in the brilliant sunshine, this year's Hampton Court Palace Flower Show will prove to be a tremendous attraction for everyone as it caters for both keen gardeners and families who just what a day out in magnificent surroundings.
After all the dry hot weather that much of the country has experienced over the last few weeks, the lavender in David Coton's garden is at its most colourful and scented, he's cutting the flowerheads to make lavender biscuits or drying them for pot pourri. Here are more jobs you can do in the garden during July.
At this time of the year you'll find a fabulous selection of summer bedding at our Garden Centre in Birmingham. David Coton will be planting the bedding in containers this month to achieve a wonderful display of colour and here are some other jobs to do in the garden in June.
