We offer two excellent British made timber greenhouses with combo sheds attached. We have the wooden 6ft wide Swallow Kingfisher Greenhouse Shed Combination and the 8ft wide Swallow Raven Greenhouse Shed Combination. Both of these buildings are handmade here in the UK from high grade tantalized redwood pine and feature toughened safety glass as standard as well as automatic roof vents and inward opening doors with proper key locking mortise locks.
A greenhouse and shed combination building is a great way to easily fit both requirements into your garden. The combined greenhouse and shed allows you to make the most of the space available in your garden or on your allotment.
The Gabriel Ash Rosemoor Combi Greenhouse/Shed is a 6′ W x 8′ L greenhouse attached to a 7′ W x 4 1/2′ L shed. The entire structure is made from western red cedar, which not only looks great, but contains natural preservatives allowing greater longevity and resistance to rot. The greenhouse is covered in toughened safety glass while the shed’s roof is made of powder-coated corrugated aluminum. The cedar roof spars are protected by exterior capping with neoprene gaskets to secure glass and ensure weatherproofing.We understand that you may want to talk to an actual person instead of ordering online. Call us toll-free at 1-888-281-9337 to speak to a Sales Representative. The Rosemoor Combi also features an automated ventilation ridge that runs the length of the structure and opens when the temperature rises to release excess heat from the greenhouse. The included gutters and downspouts are constructed from powder-coated aluminum for durability and ease of connection to existing tanks or rain barrels. These hobby greenhouse kits, special ordered from their UK factory, have a 90 day lead time, and require full pre-payment prior to shipping. Shipping will be quoted per order.While there is generally color variation in the cedar, as it is exposed to the weather and begins releasing absorbed moisture, it will begin to mellow into a silver gray color. This is natural and not an indication of faulty or bad material.
Keep an eye on the thermometer, especially when heading toward spring. In many regions, temperatures can be in the 30s (-1 to 4 C.) one day and in the 60s (16 to 21 C.) the next (in a buttoned-up greenhouse it can be much higher). Plants don’t often recover from sudden overheating, so be sure to open the greenhouse if temperatures threaten to soar.Perennial herbs are another option – oregano, fennel, chives, and parsley (biennial) do well. Cool-hardy flowers, like calendula, chrysanthemum, and pansy, not only thrive in a cold house but will bloom through the winter. Many annuals and perennials that may not be hardy in your climate outdoors will actually flourish in the greenhouse, even those that are seeded in fall will grow and produce a bounty of blooms in late winter to early spring.
Can you use a shed for a greenhouse?
You can easily convert your old storage shed into a practical greenhouse with some DIY modifications. Many wooden shed plans are available online that show you how to build the perfect greenhouse from scratch.
Besides greens like spinach and lettuce, you can grow cold tolerant veggies such as cabbage and broccoli in your unheated greenhouse. Celery, peas, and the ever-popular Brussels sprouts are also excellent cool-weather veggie choices for unheated greenhouse growing.
Chances are good your unheated greenhouse is a simple cold frame or hoop type of structure. This structure is very simple to use in the winter and fairly low cost. It should be situated so it is getting the most natural sunlight possible, out of the way of winds, and as close to a water source as possible.
Other winter greenhouse plants that thrive during winter months are root vegetables. Winter temperatures actually stimulate sugar production in some root veggies, so you end up with the sweetest carrots, beets, and turnips imaginable. Don’t stop there with your winter greenhouse gardening though.An unheated greenhouse can be used to grow greens during winter, start warm season annuals, propagate landscape perennials, and shelter frost-tender plants through the winter chill.
When you have a temperature-controlled greenhouse, the sky is the limit as to what can be grown through the winter months. However, if your greenhouse is a simple affair, lacking any heat, don’t despair. Using an unheated greenhouse can still provide you with plenty of options.
During the day, a typical greenhouse will trap heat from the sun, which allows the plants inside to stay warm at night. However, when winter nights get really cold, frost damage in the greenhouse can occur without added protection.
What types of protection are available in lieu of greenhouse heaters? This can be as simple as the addition of one or two layers of horticultural fleece over your plants (remember to remove coverings during the day so they do not overheat) and placing some bubble wrap around your pots to help insulate plant roots and prevent clay pots from cracking. Horticultural bubble wrap also can be used to layer the inside of your greenhouse. The much-needed sunlight will still come through, but the extra layer of protection will keep your plants safe at night.In an unheated greenhouse, growing anything during the cold months of winter may seem impossible. Alas, it is not! Knowing how to use an unheated greenhouse and what plants are best suited are the keys to success. Read on to learn more.An unheated greenhouse in winter will not only allow you to grow hardy veggies, but you can start tender annuals, propagate perennials, and overwinter cold sensitive plants. Of course, it helps to know how to use an unheated greenhouse (or “cold house,” as it may be called) effectively and what plants will be most suited to this cooler environment.
As you’ll be visiting your greenhouse regularly, particularly during the summer, make sure it’s easy to get to and as near to the house as possible. Whether your visits are for damping down, daily watering, opening and shutting doors and vents, or just nipping in to pick a few tomatoes for your lunch, you’ll want it to be close at hand.
Avoid putting your greenhouse on a slope. Although it is technically possible, it would make things complicated, as the staging inside needs to be horizontal. Definitely don’t site it at the base of a slope, as this is often a frost pocket where coldness lingers – which doesn’t make for successful winter growing.
Which direction should a greenhouse face?
Site your greenhouse east to west It will also help it to heat up more quickly after cold nights. If you only intend to grow summer crops, aligning the ridge north-south is preferable as it gives an equal amount of sun to each side and helps to reduce overheating on the hottest days.
Don’t put your greenhouse directly under trees. They’ll cast shade, which encourages green algae to build up, blocking even more light, while falling branches and leaves can cause damage and block guttering. Honeydew from insects on the foliage of trees can make the glass or plastic sticky and dirty. Tree roots can also upset the foundations and make planting directly into the beds inside tricky.If you’re planning on planing directly in the beds inside your structure, choose a spot with decent soil, if you can, as you’ll be asking a lot from it. Poor soil can be improved by digging in organic matter, and raised beds an be a good option. Try to avoid stony or rocky ground, as it can make the construction process problematic.
Can you have a greenhouse outside in winter?
The answer is yes! There are plenty of plants you can grow in a greenhouse in winter, and while they won’t grow as fast as they would in the warmer months, they’ll still flourish with a little protection from the elements.
Of course, there may only be one site for your greenhouse but if you do have a choice, it’s worth giving it the best possible position. You’ll need a spot with maximum light and sunshine, away from frost pockets and cold winds.
Ensure there’s at least 1m of space all around your structure. Not only does this make putting it up easier, but it’s useful when panes or covers need replacing, and when cleaning or simply walking past. Leaving this space will also mean that fences and other structures aren’t close enough to cast shade or hinder ventilation.
If you want to grow crops all year round, it’s best to line up the ridge of the structure to run east-west, as this will maximise light during the winter. It will also help it to heat up more quickly after cold nights. If you only intend to grow summer crops, aligning the ridge north-south is preferable as it gives an equal amount of sun to each side and helps to reduce overheating on the hottest days.It may seem a shame to sacrifice a prime location or an already productive spot in your garden, but when you weigh up the increased benefits – being able to grow crops all year round, extending the growing season, raising seedlings and overwintering tender plants – it’s a sacrifice worth making.The advantages of an Annexed Shed/Greenhouse combination are: Any size and style of building is possible using our Bromley, Kings Bromley, Kingsbury or Bespoke greenhouse frame.

Should a greenhouse have a floor?
One of the most important reasons to install a floor in your greenhouse is to provide a surface that is durable and easy to clean. A good greenhouse floor will protect it from moisture and pests, and it will make it easier to keep the interior clean.

A further important factor in guarding against heat damage within a greenhouse or conservatory is the maintaining of a good level of atmospheric humidity during bright sunny weather. This can be achieved by thoroughly damping down (wetting hard surface areas such as paths and sitting areas with water) within the greenhouse or conservatory periodically, typically at least three times a day.
Opening vents and doors helps to release some of the heat but it is often insufficient and therefore shading is usually required from mid-spring until early autumn. With larger glasshouses, one square meter of ridge ventilation for each five square metres (20%) of floor area provides the ventilating capacity to give one complete change of air within the greenhouses every two minutes. Unfortunately, shading limits the light plants receive. As plant growth depends on light, only the minimum amount of shading should be used to keep temperatures below about 25-27ºC (77-81ºF). Otherwise, allow as much light in as possible, particularly when growing edible plants such as tomatoes. There is often no need to shade sun-loving plants such as succulents although the greenhouse is more pleasant to be in when shade is provided.Leaf temperature is mainly controlled by movement of water through the plant and out through the leaf surfaces in the form of transpiration – this process has a cooling effect on the leaves.Shading paints: are diluted in water and painted onto the outside of the glass in spring. Examples include SunClear, Varishade and Nixol. As the season progresses, thicker applications can be applied. In early autumn the coating is washed and brushed off. Shade paints are less suitable for unpainted timber structures that are left as natural wood and for structures glazed with acrylic or polycarbonate because even thorough cleansing may fail to remove all visible traces of the shading paints. Some paints are designed to become translucent when wetted.Polyethylene mesh or netting (shade netting): is usually placed inside the glasshouse and fixed with clips. External fitting is better but harder to arrange. This is a cheaper option than blinds. The plastic is likely to biodegrade over a number of years but is not expensive to replace.
The aim of gardeners is to prevent leaf temperature rising to levels at which tissue damage occurs. By September, shading should be reduced gradually, and removed as soon as ventilation alone can control overheating. Blinds and netting used for shading can be deployed on cold winter nights to limit heat losses.However, with sufficient air circulation, humidity and shading, many plants will tolerate high summer greenhouse or conservatory temperatures in the same way that they survive in the tropics and subtropics where many greenhouse and conservatory plants originate. Greenhouses are vulnerable to overheating from spring until autumn. Without protection from heat, few plants are likely to survive unharmed when subjected to prolonged high levels of heat and dry atmosphere within a greenhouse or conservatory. Internal blinds: do not have the same cooling effect as external blinds since sunlight is allowed to pass through the glass and generates heat. However, they are probably more easily automated than external blinds in order to provide shade when it is most required. There are a wide variety of materials available in a range of degrees of shading and with varying permeability to allow air exchange.Smaller greenhouses have a higher glass to floor area ratio, and should ideally have an even higher percentage of ridge ventilation. Unfortunately, this is seldom provided and amateur greenhouses are very vulnerable to overheating. Extra shading is commonly needed which can cut down on light falling on the plants to a degree which reduces growth and cropping. Thankfully, the door of small greenhouses offers an alternative means of ventilation which partially compensates for lack of roof ventilation. Side ventilation, commonly by louvres, is less effective than roof vents.External blinds: give shade and also provide the maximum cooling effect by preventing the sun’s rays from passing through the glass. In periods of dull weather they can be easily drawn up again to allow maximum light on to plants. However, they are likely to be one of the more expensive options (and may interfere with vents).
The ultimate in design and style, the busy gardener will enjoy the space to pot and potter to their hearts delight all under one roof. No more trips back and forth for just the right garden tool or piece of equipment, and services like water and electric can be easily accessed all in one place.
The ultimate in form and function, the combination shed with a greenhouse attached offers the advantage of having everything you need for gardening all in one place.You have the flexibility to adapt your shed into a potting shed for plants, keeping them out of the cold during winter months, or you can use it solely as a storage shed for your lawnmower, gardening tools and other garden equipment. It can even be used for bikes and garden furniture if that’s what you prefer. The options are endless.
For many, a timber potting shed can be an attractive and desirable gardening structure that is tough and resilient. If you are thinking about a potting shed or a greenhouse, why not combine the two and invest in a Grow and Store Greenhouse? This versatile garden structure provides two buildings within one structure, giving all the advantages of both a greenhouse and a storing shed under one roof.
This is an ideal solution for an allotment, as you have everything you need in the storage part of your shed, and seedlings and plants can grow in the greenhouse section. They offer great value for money, and these buildings can be attractive as well as practical.
By combining both a greenhouse and a storage area, you are able to grow rich organic food and easily store it in a secure structure. All your gardening tools are at hand while you are working in your greenhouse, and the overall space it takes up in your garden is minimized.
Grow and store potting sheds or greenhouses are every gardener’s must-have garden building. They provide a dry, warm environment that is secure from damp, rain and the cold, encouraging plant and seedling growth. Traditional styles with angled glazed frontages are especially good at providing plenty of light and the heat that many plants depend upon.Gardeners have been enjoying the various designs of greenhouses for decades. Traditional timber structures can be attractive, and they can blend into your garden design beautifully. Glazed frontages allow for light and warmth to penetrate the greenhouse, keeping your plants warm and encouraging growth.In a grow and store greenhouse, you have all the benefits of a greenhouse along with a shed. An integral door allows you to keep heat in when it’s closed or allows the heat to escape when it’s opened. Perfect for those people who don’t have enough room in their garden for a separate greenhouse and a garden shed, the grow and store greenhouse is multi-purpose and makes effective use of space.
Should greenhouse be in full sun?
Greenhouses, whether of glass or plastic, can overheat in sunny weather. Plants can be protected from excess heat by shading and ventilation.

How do greenhouses do in the winter?
Using an Unheated Greenhouse in Winter During the day, a typical greenhouse will trap heat from the sun, which allows the plants inside to stay warm at night. However, when winter nights get really cold, frost damage in the greenhouse can occur without added protection.
The windows of our garden buildings are designed to fit well. However, over time due to the natural movement of the timber small gaps can occur. To prevent this from occurring make sure to seal your Styrene windows with a silicone sealant.
What is the purpose of a greenhouse shed?
Grow and store potting sheds or greenhouses are every gardener’s must-have garden building. They provide a dry, warm environment that is secure from damp, rain and the cold, encouraging plant and seedling growth.
On the morning of your confirmed delivery date, we will contact you by email or text message assigning you a two-hour delivery slot. This means that there is no need to wait in all day!

But rest assured, we are always working hard to keep delays of this sort to a minimum.Prior to building your garden shed be sure to check your base is level in both directions. If the base of your shed is not level when it is constructed it will cause the building to twist and warp with the natural movement of the timber. Therefore, it is really important to adjust your base accordingly to achieve this before constructing your garden building.
We strongly advise if you are planning on using a third party installer to construct your log cabin that you do not book their services until you receive and are happy with your garden building. As we do not cover any third party cost in the instance of a failed delivery or a damaged item preventing installation.

We stock all of the top manufacturers, including Swallow and Clearview. “Fantastic build quality, the shed extension is brilliant, and the attention to detail is first class. The thermowood look and feel makes it look more expensive than it is and certainly competes with some RHS ‘certified’ versions where you will pay 4 x the price! The large building was erected in less than 4 hours and the guys arrived promptly.”
If you are looking for an inexpensive option, go with horticultural glass. Beware that horticulture glass is not as strong as toughened safety glass and if it breaks it will shatter and potentially cause injuries.
We offer a selection of greenhouse shelving and staging when you’re on the product page, and you can choose between 5 slat and 2 slat shelving options. These are ideal for extra storage of plants and pots.Shelves on one side and glass greenhouse windows on the other make for the ideal space. Use the boarded side with functional shelves to store all your tools, containers, fertilizer and other gardening equipment. On the opposite side, your plants will thrive in the greenhouse-like area.Start by ensuring that your shed is in good enough condition to bother with this project. If the answer is yes, you now have some decisions to make. One of the most important is what type of glazing will you use? Polycarbonate, horticultural glass, toughened glass, fibreglass or plastic? The easiest materials to work with for this type of project will be sheet plastic or fibreglass panels. Whatever you choose, you will need to get rid of the old roof shingles as well as the guttering, and capping. Instead of shingles, you will want to cover the roof with your translucent material and secure it tightly under the roof frame. Alternatively, you could consider installing fibreglass panels by simply attaching them to your existing studs and rafters. Fibreglass panels can be easily cut using a saw blade.Some of our more popular 8×10 combo greenhouses are the Clearview Cambridgeshire here, and the Swallow Rook Potting Shed here, which is similar to a lean to shed greenhouse. The next step is to remove the siding and replace it with translucent material. If you are using plastic, measure it out first and cut it long enough to wrap tightly around the perimeter of your shed. Use the siding you removed to secure the bottom and make it look nicer. In the summer, you could leave two opposite sections of your greenhouse open to provide ventilation. Fibreglass panels or another type of translucent material may be used in place of plastic. Considering how your greenhouse will be ventilated is an important step. Control the heat to your greenhouse by adding roof vents or automatic vent openers. We also have louvre vents and auto louvre vents available as well.

“The potting shed was delivered on the arranged date, and erected very efficiently. I am delighted with the design, quality, workmanship and functionality of this shed/greenhouse, which complements my existing greenhouse.”
“Had to wait (understandably) a while for my greenhouse due to the lockdown rush. However, Swallow kept me informed of progress and my greenhouse arrived when promised. The installation team were incredibly helpful, efficient and polite and made sure that I was happy before they left. The greenhouse, which I chose in Bracken Green is beautiful and also functional. I absolutely love it and would recommend a Swallow Greenhouse to anyone.”We offer free delivery on all greenhouse sheds to UK mainland postcodes, with some exceptions of the Scottish Highlands and other hard to reach areas (which will require a custom quote).
