If you are an aspiring gardener, an Amateur Greenhouse may be for you, or if space is a premium a Traditional Greenhouse would be ideal, but do not forget the ever efficient Lean-To Greenhouses. They are available in both Amateur and Traditional styles and against a warm wall can produce fantastic crop results. The Alton Octagonal range of greenhouses are proving to be very popular as their contemporary style looks great in any garden, whilst producing excellent yields.
Alton's fine reputation in building quality cedar buildings started way back in 1921, when they started the greenhouse boom, the Cedar Amateur greenhouse became Britain's very first greenhouse specially designed for the domestic market.
In the following years Alton has earned itself a reputation for innovative design, robust construction and outstanding durability - making Alton Greenhouses the gardener's choice!
You only have to talk to gardening club members, read the gardening press or watch the television gardening programmes to see what we mean. As part of the ever continuing Alton design and development policy, products have been introduced over the years and brand new ones are on the drawing boards.
Alton have also introduced toughened safety glass as standard, throughout their entire range of buildings, giving you complete piece of mind when working around all that glass, or if children are playing near by.
Nobody has more experience of manufacturing cedar buildings or the needs of discerning gardeners than Alton. It shows in every model in their range, in sensible, practical design ideas, quality materials and really solid construction. Add to that the range of accessories and you will understand why Alton are very proud of their products and how you too can be very proud in owning a quality Alton Building.
Made in only the best Western Red Cedar, Alton Greenhouses are stronger than most aluminium greenhouses, give better heat retention and are far more resistant to wind damage. In addition, all of their Cedar is dipped in a wood preservative to ensure colour consistency.
If any part of the Cedar framework rots or decays within TEN YEARS of purchase, Alton will replace it promptly and FREE OF CHARGE. This free guarantee is in addition to your statutory rights (To maintain colour, a yearly application of wood preservative is recommended).
