The Victorian Greenhouse
This thirty square meter greenhouse was the first one I built. On one of my early trips to England I fell head over heels in love. It happened at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, where many English greenhouse manufacturers were represented. The selection was impressive, but when I came to Hartley Botanic, I immediately fell for this medium sized Victorian green house. It fitted my needs perfectly. And this brick-based model fulfilled my wildest dreams.
The greenhouse was ordered and back home again I found a mason who erected the base behind the house, and when this base was ready, the house arrived from England. It was delivered partially assembled on a small truck, and the driver and the one passenger not only handled the transport, they were also the ones to erect the greenhouse. In the span of a few days the house was ready to put to use, and I must say that it is one of the best gifts I have ever given myself.
