The golden age of fine, generally metal-framed greenhouses (historically cast and wrought iron) was Victorian England. The wealthy upper classes and aspiring middle-class botanists competed to create the most impressive and elaborate buildings. Celebrated examples include the pioneering Palm House at Kew Gardens built by Richard Turner, and the original Crystal Palace built for the Great Exhibition of 1851, designed by Joseph Paxton. They had been experimenting with iron structures for building larger greenhouses for a decade or more, culminating in these magnificent temples of glass.
Only a few companies in the world have managed to preserve this inheritance of making greenhouses for passionate plant-lovers that combine the best aspects of traditional Victorian design with rigorous engineering standards and complete functionality – maintenance-free and guaranteed for life – the perfect environment for nursing even the most fragile plants in ideal, controlled surroundings. We are proud to offer these magnificent greenhouses made in Hampshire, England to our European customers.
