Why are you telling me this?
We have a reputation of actually being ‘Incredibly Sensible’ and always do what we say we will do, and want to keep it that way. We’re openly transparent in our dealings with our customers by providing accurate and honest information.
How can I find out actual delivery times now?
Here are the published lead times by each manufacturer issued to each and every retailer throughout the land. Although order-to-delivery times can vary according to demand, some models are unexpectantly coming through earlier than anticipated.

Although the above times are a good guide, and for the most part accurate, variations can sometimes happen due to circumstances brought about by reasons associated with the supply of component parts.
How do you suggest I proceed?
You can order in the usual way, either by telephone or online, and we’ll do our utmost to get your greenhouse to you as soon as possible. Ordering now will ensure current prices prevail regardless of when your greenhouse is delivered.
If I consider waiting until later in the year before purchasing, will delivery times return to normal?
All indications suggest that delivery times will not return to normal for the foreseeable future. If you were planning to purchase a greenhouse for the start of the next growing season, it’s probably a good idea to order now with the knowledge that you can cancel at any time and for any reason, with a full refund of all monies paid. A £100 deposit will secure current prices and, subject to each manufacturers’ delivery times, orders can be held until required.
By making contact with you, will I be obligated to place an order?
Absolutely not! We won’t even attempt to solicit an order – that’s not who we are. We’ll tell you what you want to know without any nonsense or misleading information, leaving the rest entirely up to you.
