Victorian Greenhouses

At Dovetail, we have combined the beauty and design of the traditional Victorian greenhouse with enduring quality of manufacture, to produce a Victorian greenhouse that is elegant, robust and functional. Have a look at our Victorian greenhouse gallery to see some of our designs.

Victorian Greenhouses Options

A Victorian-style greenhouse will enhance any garden, whatever it’s size. We can design and manufacture Victorian-style greenhouses to sit on new or existing brick walls, or design them glass-to-ground. There’s also a large range of colours to choose from.

Typically, our Victorian greenhouses will feature a traditional steep 45-degree roof pitch. We can also reduce the width of each pane of glass to replicate the narrow glazing found in most greenhouses of the period. The ridge can be adorned with decorative finials, cresting, or both.

Victorian Greenhouse Colours

Our greenhouses can be supplied in plain aluminium or powder coated in a wide range of colours. We have a range of colours which our customers request on a regular basis but can also advise when it comes to matching a specific colour on your property.

Glazing Options

The vast majority of our greenhouses are glazed with 4mm single sheet toughened safety glass. The versatility of our glazing system however means that we are also able to glaze our buildings with 3mm overlapping horticultural glass or even 6mm twin wall polycarbonate.

The Dovetail Capped Glazing system

Our unique aluminium capping system gives us a very pleasing alternative to traditional glazing clips. Our capping strip covers the full length of each pane of glass, with a rubber gasket providing the watertight seal thereby eliminating the use of glazing foam tape and visible individual clips. The result is a clean, straight edge which unlike other manufacturers is entirely plastic-free and offers much less purchase for moss and other debris to build up over time, giving you a maintenance free finish.

What our customers say about us

We are privileged to have had many, many happy customers over the years. Here’s what a number of them have said about our greenhouses.

Thanks again for all of the care and attention you gave to the design, manufacture and installation of the beautiful greenhouse which now sits in our garden. We are delighted with it and are looking forward to enjoying using it for many years to come.

First-class attention to detail
I have never really thanked you and all your team for the splendid new greenhouse at Kiplin. We were convinced that a new one was needed and your quotation was extremely competitive. Your attention to detail was first class and the liaison you had with both ourselves and builders meant that the whole project went extremely smoothly. Thank you for all the time you put in coming up to see us on several occasions, and of course for all the lads who did a really first class job when they came on site.

It exceeds my expectations
I really must say a large thank you for what you have done. It exceeds my expectations and you have given me a building of the highest quality that will last for years and allow me to continue to grow, expand and manage my collection of cacti and succulents.
