Select Your Options
Option 1 > Choose Your Frame Colour
Please select from the following ten frame colours. Milled Silver aluminium is pre-selected by default and is the standard option. However, powder coated frame options are also available at an additional cost.
The Total Cost (inc. VAT and delivery*) appears at the top right of this page and changes as you select your options.
Option 2 > Choose Your Greenhouse Glass
We offer three different types of glazing: 3mm Horticultural Glass which is pre-selected by default, but you can upgrade to single sheet Toughened Glass or 6mm Polycarbonate Glazing here.
As Horticultural Glass is included in your frame price it is a NO COST option. The additional cost of Toughened Glass or Polycarbonate Glazing is indicated below.
Please Note: Greenhouse glass images below are for guidance only.
Option 3 > Bar Capping?
Bar capping is a continuous strip glazing system used instead of glazing clips, this gives a far neater streamlined appearance. It's made from PVC and is UVI treated.
For a more detailed explanation of what bar capping is, see our handy Bar Capping Guide here.
Please Note: Bar Capping is NOT suitable for use with horticultural glass. But is recommended for use with single sheet toughened and polycarbonate glazing.
Option 4 > Cresting & Finials
Crestings and finials are available in either a standard silver aluminium or any of the powder-coated colours chosen for your greenhouse frame. If required please tick the appropriate checkbox below to match the colour of the finials to your chosen greenhouse colour finish above.
Option 5 > Additional Rear Double Doors?
Having double doors at the rear of your Greenhouse is very convenient because you will be able to gain access from both ends and walk straight through your Greenhouse with ease.
Please select from the following rear double door options, you can also choose to have Bar Capping.
Option 6 > Cambered Door Sill and Support Plate
Option 7 > Delivery Options
Standard Delivery within Mainland England, Wales and Mainland Scotland is inclusive. Although, we can still deliver to northern and remote parts of Scotland as well as Northern and the Republic of Ireland at an additional cost, as per these delivery options.

Option 8 > Discuss with an Elite Technician
Accessories > Ventilation?
Ventilation is essential for any greenhouse no matter the size to ensure that the humidity and temperature inside provides the best growing experience for your new plants.
Accessories > Staging?
These 6ft long aluminium and 4ft wooden staging units allow extra workspace along the sides of your greenhouse.
Purchase two sets of aluminium staging to fit across one side, or four sets to fit across both sides of your greenhouse.
Alternatively, why not go with the more traditional wooden staging, which you will need to purchase 3 sets to fill one side inside your greenhouse, or 6 sets to fill both sides.
Accessories > Shelving?
By adding a shelf or two to your greenhouse, you'll have added workspace areas to store small tools, pots and seedlings. Each set of shelves comes complete with the necessary braces to install them to your Elite greenhouse frame.
You may decide to purchase two sets of 6ft staging to fit one full length (12ft) inside your greenhouse, or alternatively purchase four sets of 6ft shelves to fit along both sides of your greenhouse.
