The Kingfisher 6ft x 8ft Wide Greenhouse, part of the very popular 6ft 8ins wide range from UK manufacturers Swallow.
All their greenhouses benefit from the use of ThermoWood®, timber that has been heat-treated to remove moisture. This means it will not warp or rot. It's really strong and durable, so the greenhouse has a much-enhanced lifespan.
Although constructed with modern materials, the Kingfisher is traditional in appearance and built by British craftsmen.
Many outstanding features come as standard and these can be augmented by various options. The greenhouse can also be complemented by a Combination Shed that adds storage and working space.
There are two automatic roof vents to regulate growing conditions, most notably temperature and humidity. A single door, complete with a mortice lock, can be at either end while the glazing is toughened and sealed with a high-quality silicone.
We currently have this model (painted in Bracken green) on display at our show site. We are open 7 days a week if you would like to view our display model.
