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.

Limited Time Free Accessory Offer
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 and Finials?
Crestings and Finials are available in either a standard silver milled aluminium or any of powder coated colours depending on your chosen greenhouse frame above.
If required please tick the appropriate check box 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 to 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
Should your greenhouse be built on compacted soil or grass we would recommend using the Cambered Door Cill with Support Plate over and under the bottom door rail as this will help spread the load and stops the rail sinking overtime.
Alternatively, wheelchairs and wheelbarrows will be able to access the greenhouse with the minimum of fuss over the low beam when using this ramp cill and support.
Option 7 > Delivery Options
Standard Delivery within Mainland England, Wales and Mainland Scotland is Included.
However, delivery to the Scottish Highlands, Remote Areas, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will unfortunately be charged extra due to transport costs. All Offshore Islands will require a separate quotation.

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?
We offer 8ft long aluminium (in silver or a powder coated finish) staging which allows extra workspace along the sides of your greenhouse. Purchase one set of staging to fit across one side, or two sets to have staging across both sides of your greenhouse.
Alternatively, go with the more traditional wooden staging which is available in 4ft lengths, meaning that you will need 2 sets to fit one side of your greenhouse or 4 sets to fit 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 have one set along one side of your greenhouse, or alternatively purchase two sets to fit both sides of your greenhouse.
Accessories > Water Systems?
Accessories > Heating?

Questions and Answers (1)
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.
