At the Garden Industry Manufacturers Association (GIMA) 2019 awards, the Victorian Walkaround Greenhouse scooped the honours in the Garden Landscaping category, with the judges praising this “unique, compact and multi-entry growhouse with its quirky design which adds style in a smaller garden.”

A Unique, Award-winning Design

We couldn’t agree more with the GIMA judges when it comes to this fantastic little garden building. It is cleverly designed with a number of features which make growing fruit, vegetables and plants all year round accessible for everyone – even for those of us who have small or awkwardly shaped gardens. With so many of us living in urban or suburban areas, testing your green fingers can seem like an unrealistic dream. But the compact 4ft x 3ft footprint of the Victorian Walkaround means it fits unobtrusively into smaller spaces, making it perfect for courtyards, patios, roof terraces and urban living. It boasts a generous height as well, so you are given plenty of growing space inside for a greenhouse that takes up surprisingly little room.

But being a compact greenhouse is hardly enough to win a prestigious industry award is it? It is the Victorian Walkaround’s many unique features which have seen it win so many plaudits. Its innovative design offers a completely new take on the greenhouse, with keen gardeners able to access their plants without actually having to go inside. Not only does this ensure its footprint remains compact, but it maximises the growing room inside by not having to leave floor space for access by foot. The slatted staging is at the perfect height for easily cultivating any plants which adorn it, and there is space for two grow bag trays on the floor too. However, if you favour a more hands-on approach, the slatted staging can be removed, allowing you to go inside. You will also find there is more than enough room to manoeuvre should you ever need to enter, despite the greenhouse’s compact footprint. Many customers will remove the staging if they are hoping to encourage taller growing plants as well.

That isn’t all. The greenhouse structure is made up of 8 separate “wall” sections, 4 of which are opening doors. The beauty of the Victorian Walkaround is that you can locate these doors wherever you desire to suit your space and to give you the access you need. That means you can have double doors at either end, a single door on all 4 elevations, or even have 3 doors on one length if that’s best for your space. This flexibility is key to the innovative design which makes the Victorian Walkaround a worthy award winner, and also means you can situate it against a wall or fencing while still being able to access your plants with ease. On top of all that, the Victorian Walkaround is also a beautiful garden building. Its picture-book appearance with stunning finials immediately catches the eye, and we always hear about how customers love the classic, almost rustic look of a timber growhouse over those made from metal or plastic.  

Other Features

An opening roof vent window is supplied so you can control the temperature and allow ventilation inside your greenhouse. This is essential for creating the right environment for any plants to thrive. You can also upgrade to a version of the Victorian Walkaround where this roof vent is automatic, meaning it will open on its own with changes in temperature. It is glazed entirely in shatterproof styrene for extra safety, making it ideal for a busy garden or a family home with children or pets. All the timber has been pressure treated, and pressure treated products are undoubtedly top of their class when it comes to quality, wooden garden buildings that will stand up to the test of time.

This is all backed up by a 15 year anti-rot guarantee, though customers must remember to follow all the care guidelines provided by the manufacturer to ensure your guarantee is valid. As part of this care, your building must be appropriately treated – this is extra-important with a timber greenhouse due to the moisture that can build up inside. To provide an unbeatable level of protection and a way to really bring your greenhouse to life with rich colour, we strongly recommend Protek Wood Treatment, available in 64 exciting stains and shades.

Your Victorian Walkaround Greenhouse is delivered flat-packed with detailed instructions and all the fixings you will need to complete assembly. Please note that some photos show this greenhouse painted for decorative purposes. However, the Victorian Walkaround Greenhouse is supplied unpainted.

Upgrade to the AutoVent Model

We also supply the Forest Victorian Walkaround Greenhouse with AutoVent. A healthy environment is imperative for successfully raising plants. The AutoVent features a wax cylinder that expands as the temperature rises, opening the roof vent to increase the air-flow. This helps to regulate the temperature in the greenhouse and creates an ideal growing environment, allowing your plants to thrive.
