The Thyme greenhouse is packed with features including 12inch glazing centres, cantilever bracing, 6ft 2in double sliding doors, ridge cresting and finials ventilation and many more.

The Thyme greenhouse is available in a choice of plain aluminium or powder coated finish (Green, Graphite, Black, Brown, Terracotta, White, Olive, Berry or Stone). Toughened safety glass (EN12150) is supplied as standard, or you can choose polycarbonate glazing (charges will vary).
The greenhouse is available in two widths and lengths up to 20ft 5in. You also can choose between a freestanding greenhouse or the dwarf wall version!

This image shows the 6ft wide Elite Thyme greenhouse in powder coated green finish. Freestanding timber staging has been added to this greenhouse to provide a working platform that can be easily removed. A water barrel has also been added to collect rainwater for watering plants.
Standard features of The Thyme are as follows :
• 12” distance between glazing bars
• Full sheet toughened glass
• Double sliding doors
• Low threshold access
• Integral aluminium base plinth
• Ridge cresting and finials
• Two 12” wide 5 blade louvre windows

In addition this particular display model at GBC includes a rainwater kit, staging on one side and black external glazing bar capping.
Delivery to mainland England and Wales is included in all of our Elite greenhouse prices. It's also included in selected areas of Scotland but you need to check with our staff as we occasionally have to make extra arrangements for areas above the central belt which may cost a little extra. On delivery the greenhouse and staging are contained in the larger cardboard boxes, the accessory items are grouped together and the glass needs a clear length of wall to lean against, preferably in a garage or outbuilding. In this instance a fairly small greenhouse delivery is safely stacked against a sheltered garden wall. Nothing in the boxes will take any harm if it gets wet during storage, after all, the greenhouse is intended to stand outside in all weather. You will be advised of the delivery date so you can ensure that the delivery driver can gain access to unload the boxes and glass.
Should you choose to install your greenhouse yourself this is what you will find when you unpack the boxes ! The components here are from our smallest greenhouse ( 4ft x 4ft ) but the principle is the same with all sizes. Aluminium components are carefully wrapped and labelled to tell you which section they belong to. All you need to do is follow the instructions on preparing them and assembling them which are also provided. ( Orange booklet in this picture ). All clips, nuts and bolts and rubber glazing beads are provided in the pack too. Glass is delivered at the same time as the greenhouse and stacked where you request.
If you prefer to have your greenhouse installed then please talk to a member of our staff who will be happy to explain the various fitting options available to you.

As with all of our aluminium greenhouses, this building will be delivered directly to you by one of our own careful drivers. We always like to ensure that your building reaches you in perfect condition, so at point of order we will always ask you to provide us with as much information regarding access to your address and base area as possible.
We will always give good notice of our expected arrival date and work carefully with our customers to try and provide a suitable time and date to suit you. If you cannot be there in person, we will endeavour to leave the greenhouse pack in a pre-designated area, we simply require you to inform us of the area and ensure that it is safe and stable enough for the glass and greenhouse pack to be left.
As our aluminium greenhouses are so popular, the delivery times can vary from season to season. Our colour powder-coated greenhouses can take slightly longer, due to the powder-coating process. For plain aluminium greenhouses, you should expect to receive your building in around 3-4 weeks from point of order and up to 6-10 weeks for certain colours. Please feel free to contact us on 0800 999 0123 to check our current delivery times.
