Kingfisher Greenhouses

Updated on November 12, 2014

Kingfisher Greenhouses

Kingfisher Greenhouses are the new name in cheap greenhouses in the UK. Constructed from strong aluminium frames with twin wall polycarbonate glazing the Kingfisher Greenhouse is a great choice for the keen gardener looking to grow vegetables and protect plants over the winter.

Kingfisher Greenhouses are available in the following sizes: 8x6, 6x6, 6x4 and a 4x2 Lean-to greenhouse.

There are many budget priced greenhouses on the market today, not all of them worth recommendation. However the Kingfisher is certainly worth a look as a starter greenhouse.

The Kingfisher 8x6 Green Greenhouse is new to the UK greenhouse market but will be competing with the big established brands in cheap greenhouses.

8x6 is by far the most popular greenhouse size as it offers enough space and practicality for any gardener. The Kingfisher model comes in a powder coated green finish which will protect the frame from the elements therefore keeping rust at bay but also looking good and blending beautifully into your garden.

The greenhouse features a sliding door as standard as well as one opening roof vent.

Twin Wall Polycarbonate Glazing - 4mm Double Glazing

The main advantage of polycarbonate over glass is that it is far more durable and strong and has many safety benefits. Many greenhouses are glazed in 3mm horticultural glass as standard which can be dangerous if broken as it breaks into shards which are extremely sharp. It's generally recommended that if the greenhouse is sited in a public place polycarbonate be used.

Polycarbonate glazing is highly recommended if you have children or animals present as any impact will merely result in the child or dog/cat bouncing of the polycarbonate panel or at the worst popping a panel out. The insulation properties of polycarbonate are superior to glass. The most effective greenhouse polycarbonate is 4mm twin wall polycarbonate sheet. This polycarbonate has a thermal insulation "R value" of around 1.42 whereas horticultural glass has an "R value" of around 0.93.

Twin wall polycarbonate is easy to clean and fairly cheap to replace should you manage to damage or lose any panels.

4mm twin wall polycarbonate also out performs glass where protection of your plants from harmful scorching UV is concerned also as it effectively diffuses light coming into the greenhouse whilst maintaining 80 to 85 % light transmission.

Integral Gutter System - Kingfisher Greenhouse standard feature.

Kingfisher Greenhouses come with an integral gutter system that allows for effective water drainage, making sure puddles cannot collect around the base. Using the integral guttering it's then possible to collect rainwater in a water butt or other container for watering the very plants within your greenhouse. Fresh rainwater is much better for your plants than tap water and it's free !

      I am an advocate and fan of greenhouses too! You know, the Kingfisher is a great name for the type of greenhouse to grow fish in! Aquaponics? So many fine selections, I can't pick just one!
