Description

The extra width of the Elite Thyme 8 8ft x 6ft greenhouse provides added possibilities for gardeners who may have just a compact space but want to cultivate a good range of plants.

Replicating the strength of other greenhouses in the range, this one also has the extensive choice of options and accessories that we have come to expect.

Traditional styling is augmented by contemporary features. The double sliding doors offer improved access, and less able gardeners will appreciate the low threshold and support plate. If required, extra doors can be fitted to the far end of the greenhouse.

This is a fine looking structure whether freestanding or located on a dwarf wall. Bracing provides great strength and rigidity to an aluminium frame that is rust and rot proof and can be powder coated for extra protection in one of nine UV resistant colours.

Light streams through the standard toughened glass but, if you need better insulation in colder weather and superior light dispersion, choose the polycarbonate alternative. Bar capping will be another excellent option as it will seal and attractively secure the glazing.

One roof vent and two louvre windows will create an excellent flow of air through the greenhouse, but if you want more ventilation then extra vents can be fitted. Auto openers will save you time and trouble and they are especially useful if you are ever absent.

The greenhouse already contains one shelf but more shelving and staging is available along with many other accessories such as a rainwater collection kit, water butts, heaters and even cresting to decorate the roof.
