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.


It is not hard to see how the Bella greenhouse got its name, the Italian word for beauty; its subtle curves create a bell shape that is easy on the eyes, and also improve the Bella's resistance against poor weather. An 8x16 footprint is easily sufficient space for the needs of most amateur gardeners, whether you aim to cultivate vibrant flower displays or towering tomato plants that brim with flavour.

It is rare to find such a unique and well-built greenhouse in this price range, and it is worth reading into the many features packed into the Palram Bella if this is a design that catches your eye.


The 8x16 Bella Silver greenhouse features a variety of components that bring the quality of the overall greenhouse to the next level. This includes three upper vents that can be opened to alter the humidity and temperature of your growing area, which is even more effective when used in combination with the double doors to create a draught. A magnetic catch is included with each of the doors that attaches to the magnetised base and allows them to snap in place, keeping the doors open wide.

It would be a mistake to overlook the core materials that give the Bella its fantastic build quality, however. For example, a galvanised steel base lays the groundwork around the greenhouse's perimeter, and an aluminium frame extends the Bella's strength and − like the entirety of the Bella − is resistant against corrosion and rust.


At elbec, we are excited to offer a fantastic range of accessories for those who want to enhance their greenhouse in order to improve its capacity to do certain tasks. Many enjoy the increased control offered by an Automatic Vent Opener, which utilises the ambient air temperature to open up a vent and allow for more airflow. The item requires no electricity. It instead features a wax cylinder that expands and contracts to open and close a piston, all depending on the air temperature.

Those concerned with making the most of their space and having the potential to expand the scale of gardening projects will love the Two Tier Staging. This accessory is freestanding and easily moved thanks to a light polycarbonate structure. It is able to withstand a load of up to 40kg on the top shelf and 160kg on the lower shelf. Perforations on both levels ensure excess water can easily run off.

Additional Features

The Palram 8x16 Bella Silver greenhouse will need to be assembled on a flat section of ground, but comes with its own steel perimeter base for easy building. Assembling the Bella is made simple with written instructions from the manufacturer. Once the base is in place, the aluminium frame is easily screwed in place. Palram's polycarbonate glazing is designed to slot in place in a straightforward manner. Virtually unbreakable 6 mm wall and roof and 4mm door and window twin-wall polycarbonate panels maintain ideal temperatures and protect from strong sunlight exposure. It might take an afternoon or a whole weekend to assemble your Bella, depending on your DIY experience, but the process can be surprisingly rewarding.

Once complete, the greenhouse requires little maintenance thanks to its rust-free components and great build quality. Palram trusts its workmanship so much that a five-year warranty is offered on the product as standard. Check the manufacturer's instructions regarding the coverage to ensure you have the full details and can make sure your warranty is valid.
