A Heron 12ft x 8ft wide Lean To greenhouse is a substantial greenhouse both in size and style. Inside you'll find so much space to grow an impressive variety of plants and from the outside the lean to will be an attractive enhancement to your house.
The frame has the familiar appearance of traditional timber but has been heat treated and is referred to as ThermoWood®. Without this process the wood may well warp and rot after a number of years.
However ThermoWood® has had its naturally occurring moisture and resin extracted and this means that it will not go out of shape and is highly resistant to decay, so no preservatives are required. Only Swallow use ThermoWood® in their entire greenhouse range.
To create perfect growing conditions inside the greenhouse for both gardeners and plants, there are two roof vents that are already fitted with automatic openers as standard. This means that you can be away from home, but they will still open to regulate temperature and humidity.
The lean to already has useful full length staging along one side and a high level shelf comes as optional, more staging can be added to form an 'L' shape. Toughened glazing lets in plenty of light and is sealed with silicone.
With such a generous width double doors can be located at either end, getting in and out of the greenhouse is therefore very easy, and for security there's a mortice lock.
All in all a very well specified greenhouse, built using quality materials that will last for many years.
