We are committed to Low Prices.

Strength, traditional values and modern features combine to fabulous effect in the Elite Thyme 8 8ft x 16ft Greenhouse.
Looking fantastic freestanding or with a dwarf wall, you will be literally spoilt for choice as this remarkable greenhouse has an impressive list of options and accessories.
Based on a rot and rust free aluminium frame that includes an integral base, extensive cantilever bracing provides rigidity and stability. The standard finish is milled silver but a coloured powder coating can add protection and individuality.
Needless to say, the interior is a marvellous growing space that can sustain a huge number of flowers, vegetables and fruit. Sunlight and warmth is provided by toughened or polycarbonate glazing depending on your preference, the latter has less light transmission but better dispersion and insulating qualities.
To access the interior you enter the greenhouse through large sliding double doors. These can be fitted at the opposite end as well and have a low threshold and support plate so as to not hinder wheelchairs and wheel barrows.
Such a large greenhouse requires exceptional ventilation to control humidity and temperature particularly during the summer. That's why there are four roof vents and two louvres with the opportunity to fit more if required. Automatic openers are also available to save time each day or come into action when you are away from home.
Practical accessories include a kit to collect rainwater from the integral gutters, bar capping, additional shelving and staging for sowing and potting on, heaters that will be essential when overwintering plants and water butts. To provide a finishing touch there are also decorative finials and crestings for the roof.

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.
Option 2 > Choose Your Greenhouse Glass
We offer two different types of glazing: single sheet Toughened Glass or 6mm Polycarbonate Glazing.
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 and helps to stop rainwater seeping through the glass seams. It's made from PVC and is UV treated for long term weatherproofing.
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
Option 6 > 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.

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
Elite's super strength slatted Aluminium or Power-Coated staging can be fitted to any Elite greenhouse through the use of cantilever bracing, which is attached directly onto the greenhouse framework with no visible legs, also keeping clear valuable workspace underneath.
You can have staging down one or both sides of your greenhouse, either to fully fit the sides or just to partially cover.
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.
Shelving can be installed on both sides of your greenhouse.
Each shelf can be adjusted to any height you require and fit your greenhouse framework with the included diagonal braces.
