Tulipley Greenhouse Dunster House

We could spend all day writing about our 2.4m x 3.0m half glazed  Tulipley Greenhouse but I don’t always think it is the best way to discuss our unique features. Instead I’d rather show you which is why we got Director Andy Murphy to talk to you about the Greenhouse and, because we are so confident in the quality of our product, demonstrate some of these features to you (you will see a ball kicked directly at the glass – its impressive).


For those of you that don’t want to watch the YouTube video, or read a flood of information, I’ve broken down some of the key features for you to browse:

 Pressure Treated Timber
We pressure treat all of the timber used within our Greenhouses offering protection against rot and fungal decay. We are unique in our method of pressure treating as, not only do we cut the timber to size before treatment to ensure the whole piece is treated, but we have a brown colourant added throughout the process to make sure your Greenhouse has a rich brown colour rather than the unsightly green commonly associated with pressure treatment.

4mm toughened glass
The glass used within the Tulipley Greenhouse, and infact all our glazing options,  is 4mm toughened glass rather than 3mm horticultural glass, perspex or pyrene which can look cheap and break easily. The toughened glass can easily withstand a stray football or stone reducing the potential costs of replacing it everytime it breaks.

Sliding doors
We use extra wide doors on our Greenhouse making moving chunky items like wheelbarrows easier. These doors are also sliding rather than hinge doors giving you more control over the opening and closing – there’s no risk of the door slamming shut and breaking the glass or knocking flowers out of your hands during transportation.

Foundation system (optional extra)
If you opt to add our RapidGrid foundations you will not only have a strong foundation (used for carparks) which is easier to move than a concrete base but you will also have a built in drainage system should you overwater your plants. The water will just drain away into the floor – no mess, no fuss.

2 types of skylight (automatic/manual)
You can choose between 2 different types of skylight: automatic and manual. The automatic skylight is filled with wax which, when warm, melts to open the window automatically without you needing to be there. Alternatively, we have a manual skylight which you can open and close with the window stay.

To give your garden a fighting chance of surviving the variable weather that Britain throws at you; visit our Greenhouse page or contact our team on 01234 272 445.
