Greenhouses for seasonal growing in Harpenden
One of our iconic Victoria Greenhouses was recently installed for a customer based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. Chosen as the perfect home for growing their seasonal fruit and vegetables, the greenhouse measures a compact 1.8 x 2.4m and sits in a truly stunning, scenic corner of the garden. As with all of our luxury timber garden buildings
, the Greenhouse was handcrafted to order at our Norfolk HQ using FSC© Certified Scandinavian Redwood timber. Sourced sustainably from our partnering timber mill in Sweden, the timber is slow-grown which gives it a dense, closer grain less susceptible to knots. After being customised, ordered and handmade, the greenhouse was then carefully delivered and assembled by our in-house fitting team.
Externally, the Victoria Greenhouse has a classic, traditional and timeless look that adds instant character to any exterior space. At Crane, we offer a range of opaque paint finishes including a selection of Farrow & Ball shades, all designed specifically for the outdoors. Here, our customers opted for our own shade of Ivory, which brightens up this area of the garden beautifully. The greenhouse sits on a level concrete base which was supplied by ourselves, guaranteeing the best surface to work from and ultimately ensuring the longevity of the building.
I first met Lee at the Chelsea Flower Show and he was incredibly helpful in working with me to realise my dream shed. The installation team were great and the chap who came to finish off some details was great and loved my dog. Last year I had a greenhouse supplied by a big-name company and, while I am thrilled with the finished product, the installation process was a nightmare. My experience with Crane has been the complete opposite, they were brilliant throughout!

Internally, the greenhouse is equipped with a slatted workbench and temperature-controlled, self-opening roof vents which will ensure that all of the produce inside can be kept comfortable. The door is accessorised with radiant polished brass hardware and the iconic Crane badge sits above it in a mark of exceptional quality.
