Swallow Rook 8 x 6 ft ThermoWood Potting Shed
We are committed to Low Prices.
If you find any of our products on the price promise pages advertised, and in stock and immediately available, at any of our competitors we will endeavour to match the price.
The Rook 8ft x 6ft Potting Shed is a wider version of the Jay with all the familiar high-quality features. Although compact, the extra width gives you more than adequate working and growing space.
Sowing seed and propagating plants in this light-filled shed will be a pleasure rather than a chore and the shed will last for many years as it's constructed using ThermoWood®. This timber has been heat-treated to remove moisture and resin, expansion and contraction are therefore minimized and it is highly resistant to decay even without the application of preservatives.
Lovely traditional styling allows you plenty of space to work, grow plants and store compost and pots. The potting shed already has staging at the front in addition to two rear shelves. Extra shelving above the staging can be purchased as an option.
The growing conditions inside are excellent, with automatic air vents and also an end window that opens manually, all of which create a fresh flow of air. Guttering may also be optioned so that rainwater can be re-cycled.
A fine potting shed if you are restricted for space, it's traditionally designed with toughened glass and sturdy flooring, and of course, benefits immensely from the use of ThermoWood®.
Read up on our guide for the benefits of Thermwood® greenhouses.
Dimensions do not include any applicable overhang or guttering, so please ensure that there is sufficient space around your proposed greenhouse base without obstruction, for it to be sited and installed successfully.
Note: A larger 8ft x 8ft version of this potting shed is available.
Please Note: Imagery may show greenhouses of a different size and with optional extras that must be purchased separately. A suitable flat, level and sturdy base must be prepared before the delivery / Installation date to ensure a hassle free installation.

Please choose a Delivery option -
Fast Free Delivery within Mainland England and Wales.
Inclusive delivery and installation are limited to mainland England, Wales and Scotland up to a maximum of 15 miles further North of Glasgow.
Unfortunately, Swallow greenhouses cannot be delivered and installed to areas of Scotland above 15 miles North of Glasgow, Scottish Highlands, Offshore Islands and Isles, Northern Ireland, or the Republic of Ireland.
Delivery will typically be made within 5 - 6 weeks for standard Thermowood and/or Oiled frames, and 10 weeks for painted frames.
Note: Some delivery locations such as Scotland, Devon, and Cornwall will naturally have extended delivery timeframes due to the additional distance required for the delivery and for our installation team to travel. This can be up to an additional 6 weeks on top of the standard quoted lead times.
All Swallow greenhouses are crafted to order, so may be extended during busy times of the year.
Bespoke Product Procedure
This product range is made to order on an order-by-order basis, therefore is exempt from our usual cancellation and returns policy. Any cancellations after your order has started production may not be able to be cancelled or may be subject to cancellation charges. Although a very rare occurrence, this does not affect any orders that arrive damaged or faulty, whereby our normal terms on receiving a faulty product will apply.
Vehicles We Use
Items will be delivered on larger lorries which can get to most places it's typically, a 7.5-ton lorry which is about the size of a dustbin lorry, this will depend on the item that is being delivered and should you have any concerns with restricted access to your property we ask you to contact us prior to placing an order.
Unloading Of Your Delivery
Back garden access is required from the front of the property, as due to the size of the product and the large sections that they are delivered in, the installation/delivery team are unable to carry these items inside your home as the sections are unlikely to pass through standard indoor door sizes. When the item is delivered on a pallet, the pallet and packaging are non-returnable. Goods can only be maneuvered on a flat and level surface (i.e. not a gravel driveway) by a pallet truck. If the installation/delivery team is unable to gain access to the installation area from the front of the property, they may not be able to complete the installation, and a cancellation charge may apply.
A suitable, flat, and level base must be prepared prior to the delivery and installation - please ensure that this is pre-prepared prior to the arrival of your greenhouse and the installation team.
