Gardeners on this board have various types sizes also wood or aluminium, plastic or glass so you will get plenty of information once we know what you are thinking.

It is a long time since I came on forum this is what I came to ask about. My old one is past its best I dont have a deffinite budget but hope for a 6x10 and have seen an offer  £8oo on 2 wests and Elliott but it is a bit too dear although the green frame appeals and maybe good quality, I wonder about poly against glass are there any for and againsts.

Hi, I'm looking at size 10'-8' I,d like to grow tomatoes & cucumbers & veg from seed to put into veg plot , also flowers, my garden is surrounded by farmland and quite exposed to the elements, I have three children also interested in gardening but also footballs!! I like the look of wooden greenhouses but need something to last.

I had a greenpainted metal greenhouse from B and Q which was very good. Now I have a bespoke wooden greenhouse, which is also very good. They are / were both glazed with glass. However, Polycarb might be better glazing if you have children, for safetys sake. Whatever you choose, I'm sure you'll love it - I hide away in mine for hours

I bought my greenhouse from Greenhouse People. They have different ranges from budget up. I have 6x8 Hercules, came complete with openers, louvres, guttering.

I also bought my greenhouse from the greenhouse people.   Found their service excellent.

I know I have said this elsewhere, but always consider the slightly more expensive safety glass for your greenhouse.    I accidentally threw a stone at mine, and it just bounced off.     Great stuff!

Going back to the original question-budget it as important point

How much do you want to spend?-

-is that more important than how pleasing it is to the eye?-

-wood might need more maintenance than aluminum-

-will you erect it yourself-or will you pay for it to be erected?

Thank you for comments, after at trip out to Dunster house sheds, I've ended up deciding on wood with safety glass & added shed attached, which they assure me will be in time for Christmas ready for my husband to erect!! Let's hope for a mild Christmas, can't wait to get started!!
