Wooden Greenhouses

Experienced gardeners know that a Red Cedar Wooden Greenhouse is a great choice for their plants and their gardens. It is generally agreed that Western Red Cedar is the best choice of wood for a greenhouse frame since red cedar is both long lasting and is renowned for its resistance to warp and twist. A cedar greenhouse is often the choice of the discerning gardener.

Cedar greenhouses tend to be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer making for a better growing environment than the aluminium greenhouses. Wooden greenhouses have recognizable practical advantages over aluminium greenhouses - for example it is easy to fix hooks, screws and wires to the greenhouse framework for training plants. The smell of a wooden greenhouse is a deterrent to pests and the oily properties of cedar in particular help in reducing the occurrence of plant disease within the greenhouse.

The cedar silvers down over time to a silvery grey patina as the greenhouse blends in with the surrounding garden. There are plenty of cheap aluminium greenhouses on the market but you will not find a cedar greenhouse of this quality at this price anywhere else.
