Victorian Dovetail greenhouses

There is something inherently peaceful about gardens and the plants they contain. People spend a great deal of time nurturing them for their sheer beauty and colour, shape and size and for producing their own fruit and vegetables. Of course, one of the best and most efficient ways to grow the majority of plants is with the use of a greenhouse.

We at Dovetail offer a fantastic range of Victorian greenhouses, all of which are designed to be incredibly strong and built to suit your individual needs. So if you are considering purchasing a greenhouse, we might be just the right company for you.

Who we are and what we do

For over twenty years, we have been designing and creating made to measure British greenhouses for your garden. Previously, only standard greenhouses were on the menu. Then came the inclusion of lean-to greenhouses, bespoke greenhouses and semi-commercial greenhouses. In the last seven years, we have responded to a deluge of requests asking for Dovetail to design and manufacture Victorian style greenhouses and these have become a most popular range. Each one is unique and made to suit your own gardening needs, both in terms of appearance and overall design. They have a classic, yet timeless look that is sure to bring a little extra something to your garden.

At Dovetail, we have a 10-year guarantee on the framework we offer. We are confident about its strength and durability because we know just how robust our profiles are. In fact, our range of greenhouses have twice the amount of aluminium in them than those sold by many large UK retailers. Our customers know we offer fantastic quality at affordable prices.

Why a Victorian greenhouse?

Our Victorian greenhouses are unique in that they combine a classic look with our modern manufacturing techniques. Many choose a Victorian greenhouse because it matches the period look of their home, or because their unique designs and timeless appearance suit their individual gardens. We can create any size of Victorian greenhouse you desire, for no garden is too small and everything is made to measure. We can build your greenhouse onto a new or existing brick wall or you can choose a freestanding or lean-to Victorian design. Mostly anything is possible to enhance your garden. As our Victorian greenhouses are made with an aluminium frame, as opposed to the traditional but less durable wood, there is also the option to have your greenhouse coloured. This can be beneficial for two reasons. The first is that it will further enhance its appearance in your garden, and it allows you to choose a colour that suits your home. The other is that aluminium will discolour over time with exposure to the elements, and so having it coloured reduces the need for maintenance.

Why have a greenhouse at all?

There are a few benefits to having a greenhouse in your garden. Whether you are new to gardening or looking to replace an old greenhouse or are unsure whether to purchase one at all, here are some things to consider to help you decide:

  • Provides the optimum growing environment
  • You could be growing plants which require different ph levels
  • Grow your own fruit and veg organically
  • You have the chance to grow more exotic plants
  • Gardening is no longer seasonal
  • Protection for your plants from animals, insects and the elements

To conclude

These are some of the obvious benefits to purchasing a Victorian greenhouse, both for your plants and for a stunning showpiece to your garden.  At Dovetail, we are committed to creating the best quality greenhouses that are perfectly suited to you. So if you are thinking about a new addition to your garden, give us a call and we will endeavour to help you choose your special Victorian greenhouse.
