Buy an Elite Greenhouse Now and Beat the February Price Increase

Buy an Elite Greenhouse Now and Beat the February Price Increase

Greenhouses are a great investment for both keen gardeners and gardening novices. A greenhouse will take your passion to a new level or nurture the seedling of a hobby.

First and foremost, a greenhouse offers protection for your plants, many of which would not survive the cold months without over-wintering. Instead of leaving them to brave the cold winds or snow outside, why not bring your more delicate plants into a warm greenhouse and ensure they’ll last through to the next year? This will save you time and money because you won’t have to sow new seeds again next year.

A greenhouse also allows you to grow your own vegetables, another wallet saving strategy! Freshly grown vegetables have a great taste and as the producer, you have control and can be certain that you’re not eating any pesticides or other chemicals with your Sunday roast. You also have the freedom to choose what to grow, so you can experiment with more exotic fruits or grow out of season vegetables and enjoy your favourites all year round.  If you really take to it, why not consider selling at a farmers’ market and recoup the cost of your greenhouse week by week?

With so many reasons to buy a greenhouse, surely the only thing left to consider is its size and colour? Browse the Elite greenhouse collection, which includes freestanding and lean-to greenhouses in a choice of coloured or aluminium finish, and find the perfect model for your garden.

Elite’s greenhouse prices are increasing by 10% on 1st February 2017, so you need to order by 31st January to beat the price increase.

We've Got the Perfect Playhouses for Your Youngsters

We've Got the Perfect Playhouses for Your Youngsters

Just like children, playhouses come in all different shapes and sizes. Choosing a playhouse which is just right for your youngster and their friends can be a tricky business. And there are lots of things to consider – of course, you want a safe and great quality play experience for your children, but at the same time it has to be affordable. Well, with the Shire range of playhouses starting at only £159.98 all this is possible. That’s because UK manufacturer Shire recognises that children’s play changes as they develop and their products have been adapted to perfectly suit different age groups.

The Shire 4x4 Playhut is ideal for very young children because it’s not too big, but there’s still sufficient space for the beginnings of imaginative play to develop. The Playhut includes an opening window, although tiny fingers will be safe because of the built-in piano hinges. The Playhut is a recent addition to the range and was introduced to meet the demand for a first playhouse suitable for smaller gardens.

Another compact playhouse is the Shire Bunny which looks like a proper little house with its fancy door handle and opening window. Taller than the Playhut, it’s ideal for kids who are beginning to grow both physically and mentally. Along with all the other playhouses in the Shire range, the Bunny has rounded edges for extra safety.

The Shire Kitty is a cottage-style playhouse which will appeal to primary school age children because there’s more internal space, plus there’s a canopy and a veranda included in the price. Just think of the fun the children will have and, with some shade and cover, they’ll be able to stay outside for longer. The Kitty is an attractive building which looks right at home in any style of garden.

There’s even more scope for imaginative play in the Shire Cubby playhouse which is a larger version of the Kitty. The Cubby may look a little out of place in a very small garden, but if you have the space to accommodate this 6x5 playhouse, it would be well worth it.

The Shire range of playhouses has been well thought through to provide exciting spaces where children can play in safely constructed conditions. All the Shire playhouses are supplied pre-treated with a base coat which gives you plenty of scope to choose a top coat in a colour to suit the young occupants. Whichever model is right for your family the playhouses arrive flat-packed with easy to follow assembly instructions, usually within 3-10 working days. Plus there’s free delivery* so order now!

The Elveden comes in a spacious 14x26ft build, but other sizes are also available.

And with such generous space, the possibilities for use are endless.

Home use – Use the Elveden as a hideaway for your kids, dividing it into a lounge area and a games room. Have the workshop you’ve always dreamed of, complete with a studio to fine-tune and showcase your work. Transform your study and work from home in style and comfort.

Group use – Renovate your club’s cricket or bowls facilities by using the Elveden as a pavilion, adding an extra partition to give you a social area as well as home and away dressing rooms.
