Please Note: Because of the lightweight materials, this greenhouse is not suitable for windy or exposed areas. In these circumstances we recommend a glass greenhouse which is heavier and will remain grounded. This greenhouse is also not supplied with a floor, so for greater stability it should be constructed on an appropriate concrete or slab base.

Description

A premium quality greenhouse can transform any garden into a paradise for cultivating plants, in a balanced setting with the moderated levels of temperature and humidity needed for plants to come into their own. The Palram 8x16 Glory greenhouse elevates any garden in which it is placed, with high-quality materials and an impressive list of features compared to many garden buildings in its price range. Whether you are choosing your very first greenhouse or are an old hand at horticulture, the Palram Glory has plenty to offer any garden owner – quite literally in the case of this expansive 8x16 footprint.

Features

The sheer range of features included with the 8x16 Glory can be overwhelming, but we hope to break it down for you here. The greenhouse's three upper vents opens automatically, thanks to an ingenious opener system that uses the ambient thermal energy of your greenhouse to open when the interior is overly warm, and contracts with cooler weather. A secondary mode of ventilation is provided by the louvre style vent at the side, which can let in cooler air while keeping a low profile in the greenhouse wall. 

Another welcomed design feature of the 8x16 Glory is its generous eaves height, which offers over six feet of interior headroom even at the lowest heights, reducing the need to stoop when walking inside – and providing plenty of vertical growing space ready for your homegrown plants to string up. A wide single door also contributes to the ease of accessing your greenhouse, and is ideal for larger items or wheelbarrows. The low-threshold ramp into the greenhouse makes pushing a wheelbarrow or entering by wheelchair all that bit easier.

A couple of other features that will subtly improve your experience of gardening are a brush strip that excludes draughts under the door, and an included guttering system that makes collecting any rain that falls onto the Glory's roof a doddle, with the fitting of a water butt.

Behind all of these features is the phenomenal build quality that provides a strong and durable foundation for the greenhouse. The aluminium frame used in the Glory is much thicker than lower-end models and is further supported by bars at roof's ridge and eaves. Rather than using glass – which is heavier and can be prone to shattering – the Glory utilises 10mm thick polycarbonate glazing throughout, slightly flexible and highly resistant to impact. This twin-wall glazing is semi-transparent, in order to diffuse direct sunlight and make sure that shadier spots receive more light. 

Accessories

Palram have created an exciting range of accessories for those who would like to specialise their greenhouse and ready it for certain projects. For example, those planting in summer might want to consider the Shade Kit as a way to protect plants from the harshest sunlight.

Other accessories, like the Automatic Louvre Opener, simply increase the ease with which you can nurture plants. Another of our favourites is the Drip Irrigation Kit, which can be used to water plants simultaneously via up to 16 droppers. This is great for thirsty plants that thrive on daily attention, when you lack the time to water each plant individually or want to ensure a steady and even stream of water across the greenhouse.

Additional Details

The Palram 8x16 Glory is delivered flat-packed and assembled by owners at home. While it helps to have some DIY experience, many customers often find building their greenhouse a rewarding way to spend a weekend with a friend or family member. Follow the manufacturer's written instructions closely to see the best results.

Customers who have the future in mind will be pleased to know that Palram backs up their claim of excellent build quality with a five-year warranty to set your mind at ease.
