Framework

Wooden greenhouses tend to have thicker frames than their aluminium equivalent and are better at retaining warmth in winter, thus reducing winter heating costs. Wooden greenhouses tend to stay cooler in the hot summer months; the wooden framework breathes and does not conduct the heat.

For the gardener, a timber frame makes it much easier to set up secure, permanent and temporary plant supports as you can screw into the wood in any position to suit the growth of your plants.

The timber framework inside a Red Cedar Greenhouse is especially useful for gardeners that like to have their tools and accessories close at hand. It is very easy to attach greenhouse shelves, wooden staging and even hooks and racks to the wooden greenhouse frame. This is a particular advantage during the winter when an insulating layer of bubble wrap can be quickly attached to the inside of your cedar greenhouse to protect your plants from extreme cold.

The fixings and fittings of a Growhouse Red Cedar Greenhouse complement the natural preservatives present in the wood and are made from corrosion resistant solid brass or stainless steel.
