Recreate spring with your garden greenhouse

So who’s still waiting for spring to appear? The Equinox has passed and it’s officially supposedly British Summer Time. You wouldn’t believe it though, with many towns and high land still under a blanket of snow. This is not conducive to plans for your spring gardens and is a most frustrating time for the horticulturalists amongst us…

Nevertheless, we have to hope that the warmer weather will come eventually, and now is the time to get planting; but how do gardeners protect seeds, young plants and seedlings in this cold weather?  Many of you have been scratching your heads about how to beat this protracted cold snap, well a greenhouse or cold-frame may provide a perfect helping hand. 

At Gabriel Ash there’s something for every garden. Be it a classic, freestanding greenhouse, a lean to or even an upright vinehouse. They’re all handmade from Western red cedar wood and can be made to measure and fully bespoke, so you know you’re getting exactly what you need to fulfil your green-fingered desires.

Cold-frames are also vitally important to the gardener in this cold British weather. Coldframes are a great way to bridge the gap between a greenhouse and planting outside, ‘hardening off’ young plants and vegetables and getting them used to life outside of the greenhouse. Of course the greatest benefit is the saving on space, and even the smallest of gardens can generally house a cold frame.

So, whether it’s a full size, superb glass house or an upright coldframe, why not request a brochure? All of Gabriel Ash’s products are fully endorsed by the RHS, the only greenhouse manufacturer to carry this prestige and their wood is obtained from sustainable sources, so you’re in safe hands.
