Victorian Greenhouses

The Victorians knew about greenhouses and there are examples of Victorian Greenhouses still standing in some of our stately homes today. But they suffer and are under constant repair. Back then the glass was only 2mm (one twelth of an inch) thick, now we use glass twice as thick and toughened to safety glass standards. The glass can now be manufactured in single sheets avoiding the need to overlap the glass. This provides more light to your plants as well as limiting any maintenance. In the Accoya range we use timber, providing strong portal frames and in the instance you don't want to house the greenhouse on a low wall you can opt for the Accoya sculptural boarded base which is long lasting and ecologically sourced.

  • Combination of beautiful wood and long lasting aluminium
  • Lots of light through toughened safety glass panels for stronger plants
  • Offered in a choice of boarded or brick base for a traditional look
  • Hand turned finials at the end of each ridge
  • Attractive narrow pane centres
  • Generous Victorian roof pitch providing lots of height for you and your plants
Victorian Greenhouse

We have retained the high eaves, large capacity guttering, wide hinged doors and still offer the main Victorian feature of a 45 degree roof pitch which is both imposing and impressive. So when you step into a Victorian Greenhouse from Cultivar it will feel light, airy and a comfortable space to spend time. Your plants will appreciate the large cubic air capacity and free movement of air which on a cultivar greenhouse changes completely 34 times in an hour. Creating an aluminium Victorian greenhouse fit for the 21st Century is something we at Cultivar have worked tirelessly to produce. Optionally for accessing the greenhouse from the long side there's the prospect of a Victorian greenhouse with a porch.

“After 40 years of greenhouse innovation, you’d think my enthusiasm would have wained by now. On the contrary, its grown."

Starting a business is a challenge that I relish especially when it centers on Britain’s gardens and the traditional buildings that form part of that landscape. After many years fostering two of Britain’s largest greenhouse companies, gratefully still thriving, I have joined together with my son and long time brilliant technical associate to form a design led creative team. All of the lessons learned along the way have been put to good advantage.

Full use of modern materials and manufacturing techniques have been considered in a long and thoughtful way. The result is this beautiful addition to the greenhouse world.

My principles of building a successful business have always been based on good foundations with great design and high quality at the forefront backed up with excellent customer service. It’s a credit to the team that will offer our customers lasting satisfaction.

"I know what’s gone into it so I know what you’ll get out of it, that’s why to me, a 50 year guarantee is an absolute breeze."

My experience, a design qualification, time served joinery (from an old school tutorage) building and designing homes and interiors of the highest workmanship. For the last 15 years I’ve been designing and making the most desirable greenhouses. But with Cultivar an awful lot of knowledge and skill has gone into the design. In designing this modern greenhouse there were hundreds if not thousands of technical conundrums to overcome.

We’ve achieved a greenhouse with exceptional ventilation, evenly distributed with no hot or cold spots. Great pains have been taken to ensure as many fixings as possible are concealed from view, the result a modern and clean looking greenhouse that draws comparison with the furniture in your home. The basic materials from which our greenhouses are made have been chosen for their longevity and green credentials.

The FSC Accoya framing with it’s 50 year guarantee combines beautifully with the almost indestructible aluminium framing. With Cultivar I have finally reached my objective, the most advanced greenhouse in the World. Designed to last a lifetime, it’s taken me more than half a lifetime but it’s been worth every minute.

"Cultivar brings a breath of fresh air to greenhouse construction."

I’m the part of the team that understands the needs and desires of gardeners and more importantly plants. Tim makes sure that every component is carefully manufactured whilst my father makes sure the business machine is well oiled. I bring a little humanity to the needs of our plants and our customers.

When I speak to you there are hundreds of questions that may occur relating to location, size, use and specification.  After twenty years of answering such queries I have a wealth of experience.

It is little wonder that I have a full understanding of the importance of ventilation and our low level vents in conjunction with the full length ridge ventilation provides the most effective combination conducive to growth. Each polished frameless ridge vent is made from 6mm toughened safety glass providing maximum light and ventilation as well as a dramatically different modern look. I love talking to customers about greenhouses, it’s an exciting business and gardening is a stimulating pastime.
