            Description

            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.

            Upon Delivery

            Your order will be delivered kerbside or on your driveway. Due to health, safety, and insurance liabilities, the driver will not be able to take your goods to the back of your property but – upon request – may place the product at the side of the house if there are no access issues. This is to avoid risking damage to your property while delivering to an unsafe location. We will not be able to go through your property.

            We advise against arranging for a third party to install the product before its delivered and checking that all parts are present,  we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs caused by delays.

            Assembly

            If you have selected the service for installation, we can confirm that delivery and installation will occur on different days, and the length of time required for delivery and installation will depend on the specific item you have chosen. You will not be able to pre-book a delivery or installation date when placing your order, as this will be arranged directly with the manufacturer. Within 5 working days of placing your order, the manufacturer will contact you via email to explain how to prepare the base for installation. The base must be either a solid, level timber supportive base, concrete, concrete slabs, or a pro shed base (plastic base). You should ensure that there is a clearance of 18 inches (450mm) of working space around the base so that the installers can access all areas of the structure. Shortly after receiving the email from the manufacturer, you will receive a phone call to schedule a convenient delivery and installation date. Installation may occur within 15 working days of delivery.   Note: This service is not available on all Forest products, please check if this is available for your chosen product under the 'Choose Additional Options' above.

            Specification

            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Forest Garden Greenhouses are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.

            "The walkaround greenhouse arrived with all pieces present although the timber was rather weathered as if it had been stored outside. The assembly instructions were not very clear and the structure needed additional reinforcement to address its instability and avoid potential wind damage. Unfortunately, the 4 pieces of facing that are to be fixed at the gable ends og the greenhouse are too short for their purpose. we hope that Elbec or the manufacturer will supply us with replacement pieces that are of the correct length."

            "We are delighted with the walk-around greenhouse from Elbec Garden Buildings. Many neighbours and passers by have commented on how good it looks, and it works very well too. We have recommended you to some of those people, and are sure they will be as pleased as we have been with our purchase."
