Most greenhouses in victorian times would sit onto a dwarf wall like this Ewell model. the Victorians weren’t daft. They knew that the wall would make the greenhouse look better, store the heat of the day in the bricks and hide clutter that doesn’t need to be seen.
The central position of the side door inside the porch makes your greenhouse a wonderful victorian feature in the garden but it also naturally divides your greenhouse. Some customers like to have a sitting area at one end of the greenhouse and a growing area at the other.
All Alton greenhouses are treated in the factory with a clear, spirit based protective treatment. This enables the cedar to mellow down to its silvery grey colour in an even manner over the first year or so of its life. Customers who want to preserve the original cedar colour often add a further treatment before assembly such as an osma oil, however Cedar is used for greenhouses because of its natural rot resistant properties which means that in practice, constant re-treatment is not essential for a long lifespan. Your ten year guarantee covers you against rot even if you never treat it (although you must clean it once a year to remove algae and moss etc)
