With enough room to nurture and grow a surprising number of plants, the Elite Thyme 6 6ft x 8ft Greenhouse will be both a productive and elegant presence in your garden.
Elegant due to its old world charm and productive owing to the practical design and contemporary features of this substantially built structure.
Before considering any options and accessories, decide whether you want the greenhouse located on a dwarf wall or freestanding, Whichever is chosen, the frame with its integral base will be rot and rust proof with bracing on every bar giving it great strength.
If preferred, a UV resistant powder coating can be applied to the milled silver frame, this is hard wearing and you able to choose a colour from the list of options that complements the landscape and your garden theme.
Polycarbonate may also be chosen instead of toughened glass, this type of glazing is opaque but disperses light more evenly and its insulating qualities will lead to cost savings over winter if your heat the greenhouse. Bar capping will be an attractive addition while sealing and holding the glazing in place.
A low threshold with support plate underpins the sliding double doors, and this combination provides easy access for both wheelchairs and wheel barrows into the bright interior. There is another option to have further doors installed at the far end.
As with all greenhouses, ventilation is important and that's the reason why two roof vents and two 5 blade louvre windows are fitted. If you are away from home for any length of time, auto openers are available as accessories.
A diamond shelf is installed as standard but this can be augmented by further staging and shelving of different types and there are various other options including water butts to go with a rainwater collection kit, heaters and decorative cresting.

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.
Option 4 > 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.
Option 5 > 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.

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.
