Which Lean to Greenhouse?

2x4 Lichfield Aluminium Midi Greenhouse

When you are looking for a lean to greenhouse, it is important to find one that will fit both the space you have available and your needs as a gardener.

There are a number of factors to consider, such as the size and type of plants you want to grow, the amount of sun exposure your garden gets, and the climate in your area. Once you have a clear idea of your needs, you can begin to narrow down your options. For example, if you live in an exposed or windy area, you will need a sturdier frame and extra insulation to keep your plants safe from the cold. If you have limited space, you may want to consider a smaller lean-to or one with adjustable shelves to make the most of your available space.

On this page we’ll run through the lean to greenhouses for sale here at Greenhouse Stores to try and help you find the lean to for you.

Small lean to's for small spaces

We love little lean to greenhouses here at Greenhouse Stores for a very simple reason: they allow anyone, regardless of how much space they have, to grow healthy plants and delicious vegetables.

Last season, we grew cucumbers, courgettes, spinach, borlotti beans, tomatoes, and rocket in a tiny 4ft x 2ft lean to, and we were amazed at how much produce we were able to harvest. Not only was it a fun and satisfying experience, but it also showed us that even people with limited space can enjoy the benefits of gardening. We hope to continue this every season, and we encourage others to give it a try as well!

Vitavia Ida 6ft wide Lean to

Vitavia have expanded their range to include 6ft wide lean to models. Sizes available are: 6ft x 8ft, 6ft x 10ft and 6ft x 12ft

These new models have a silver anodized frame with an integral base, horticultural or toughened glass, a 4mm polycarbonate roof for safety and double sliding doors. The double doors are very interesting for two reasons. First of all they have a heavy duty cylinder lock for security. Secondly these doors can be positioned as double doors on the front of the greenhouse or split up into two single doors to be positioned at one either side!

Vitavia Helena 9ft wide Lean to

The Vitavia Helena is a 9ft wide lean to made from thick section anodized aluminium. The Helena has an eaves/gutter height of 6ft 1" with full length float glass from floor to eaves giving excellent light transmission for a very warm growing environment. Sizes available are: 9ft x 11ft, 9ft x 13ft and 9ft x 15ft

The Helena has double locking doors that can be used as double doors at the front of the greenhouse or on either side, to suit you. The roof is made from 10mm thick polycarbonate for safety and heat retention. Another neat feature on this greenhouse is the low threshold entry which makes it easy wheeling in and out barrows or wheelchairs.
