If you are looking to buy a traditional wooden greenhouse, then you are often facing a number of limitations. This isn’t the case when you buy a wooden greenhouse from Cultivar as we use new modern materials and manufacturing techniques to ensure that our customers get all the benefits of a wooden greenhouse without facing the limitations.
One of the main issues with traditional wooden greenhouses is their durability. For instance, greenhouses made from softwoods such as pine and cedar are usually limited to a life span of between 10 and 25 years before a replacement is required.
A viable alternative to address this would be hardwoods such as teak or mahogany. Although these are longer lasting, they do come with ethical concerns on account of them being sourced from the rainforest. This makes them increasingly rare, expensive and ecologically unfriendly.
We have searched for the perfect alternative to these and decided to opt for Accoya wood for our framework and boarding. This beautiful timber is sourced from fast-growing sustainable certified wood species. It is then treated with a naturally occurring non-toxic product that produces enhanced durability, improves hardness and unbeatable dimensional stability. All of which means that Accoya greenhouses can last up to 50 years before a replacement is needed!Design & Price

Wide 750mm toughened safety glass panels set into slim aluminium frames give plants the warmth, light and ultraviolet light required for promising propagation. The frames are designed based on modern sophisticated window frame principles but miniaturized to allow more light. The glass rests between EPDM gaskets which allow the glass to expand when it gets hot but makes sure the glass is securely and snugly held in place with no rattles. The framework is powder coated in quartz grey, RAL7039, for a maintenance free finish.Design and price your greenhouse
Accoya is not only attractive, maturing to a grey patina, but is long lasting and dimensionally stable. The perfect tongue and groove boarding is machined to our exclusive design as we need consistency of quality and boards that will not warp, twist or bow.

Automated vents located at the plinth level run the entire length of each side of the greenhouse, providing more than enough ventilation. These automated flaps will provide the very best growing conditions. The autovents react to increased air temperature to ensure that your plants are not exposed to extreme temperatures.Design and price your greenhouse
In the instance that you are building a dwarf wall on which to sit your greenhouse we offer full length eaves ventilation. These run the entire length of both sides of the greenhouse and are operated manually with a simple central opener. Like the roof ventilation these are frameless and made from 6mm toughened safety glass. The edges of the vents are polished and the corners are designed with a radius for safety. Automatic openers can be exchanged for manual openers should you desire.Design and price your greenhouse
Work benches have never been so thoughtfully designed and have probably never been so strong and versatile. When installed the slatted aluminium surface will support all your plants. You can choose to have the staging down one or both sides depending upon your growing plans. If you would like a softer surface then our aluminium slats can be replaced by Accoya, an aesthetically pleasing, strong and reliable alternative. If you would like a sand bed or pea gravel then that’s no problem, just call us to discuss your needs. You can also buy online a ABS Plastic Tray for the 8 and 10 foot wide models which can be used for potting up or to soak your pots.
There is also a hidden advantage, your staging can be folded down, just remove the tray and it will pivot down in a flash with the external frame. If you prefer you can unhook the staging for complete removal. This will create a space should you wish to grow tomatoes during the summer months. The shelves adopts a similar range of options and facility.
The practical and attractive framework is finished in quartz grey, RAL7039, to co-ordinate with the greenhouse.Design and price your greenhouse

Forget delicate 2mm horticultural glass, broken storm damaged panes. Other than boulders there is not much that will break our 4mm toughened safety glass. Captured securely our strong frames and rigid construction will further protect the glass. Like all safety glass it will not shatter into shards but into small crystals which can be swept up. In any case it’s a one in a million chance but easily remedied by a simple replacement method.

The traditional dwarf wall greenhouse can be given a new look for the new century. Glazed bricks in a wide choice of colours would create quite a stir if you chose to contrast your new pastime and hobby centre to the appearance of your home. Brick bases can be a sensible but long term choice for the enthusiastic gardener, a sign of serious intent.
Furthermore brick wall greenhouses give a more even temperature throughout the structure, they’re slower to heat up and slower to cool. If you are seeking this option then discuss with your builder the plans for your new greenhouse base.
This dwarf wall greenhouse page might give you some inspiration as to the sort of bricks available.Design and price your greenhouse Building your base
All our roof and wall glazing frames have a groove, seen as a shadow line, known in the trade as a screw port. This has been designed with the grower in mind so you can fix, tie and hang plants or tools securely in position. No drilling required.
Our video shows just how easy this is using two propriety fixings which can be bought online from the like of amazon or ebay. A little creative thinking may suggest other solutions and uses. For instance, a simple screw with twine around the head would hold up your tomatoes or your electrician may use P-clips screwed into the groove to route your wiring.
The most important piece of information is however here. The screws should be stainless steel, self tapping, 4.2mm (no.8) gauge. The depth of the groove is 8mm, it cannot be tightened beyond this. A variety of screws may be required to suit your plans.
