Introducing the Kew Greenhouse Collection

Through years of experience, Alitex have created a collection of carefully designed aluminum greenhouses that work in a variety of situations whilst still maintaining the timeless Victorian aesthetics, and lifetime durability. Our position in the greenhouse industry saw us receive a seal of approval on this collection from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Our Collection

From the smaller growing environment of The Capel, to The Masson greenhouse, with double extended lobbies either side, the standard sizes of the Kew Greenhouse Collection will suit any garden. Each greenhouse is named after figureheads who were instrumental in the development of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew – from Lord John Capel who founded Kew to Sir Peter Crane who was the Director at Kew Gardens when they achieved World Heritage Status.

Explore the collection for yourself, or if you are looking for something that leans against a wall or a different shape or size, then please do browse our custom-made bespoke greenhouses or contact one of our expert greenhouse designers.

The Details

All of our greenhouses are designed and manufactured with extreme attention to detail, creating a beautiful and sustainable product.

  • Alitex greenhouses are made using aluminum which is 100% recyclable
  • The structures are low maintenance, meaning minimum upkeep is required
  • Our glasshouses are durable; they can withstand extreme temperatures, winds, and snow loads. Our in-house engineers carefully look at your location and the siting of the greenhouse to ensure the structural integrity is guaranteed.
  • We use 4mm toughened safety glass due to offering a good degree of safety and meaning that if it were to break it would break safely.
  • Automatic roof vents are controlled by the temperature inside and outside your greenhouse, working with a bayliss piston system.
  • Manual side vents create optimum ventilation. The ‘Link and Lever’ handles are manufactured in cast aluminium, their sturdy design is modelled on the historic Victorian glasshouses.
  • Each structure is powder-coated in a color of your choice. Choose from our standard 13 colors or have your greenhouse in any shade you like – just supply us with the RAL code.
    *Bespoke colors cost an additional fee, standard colors are included in the price of your greenhouse.

Tailoring to You

Although the Kew Collection is made up of a standard range of sizes, at Alitex there is always an opportunity to create a bespoke growing space just for you. Accessories to consider when planning your growing environment include:

  • Aluminum Benching – designed carefully to enhance the Victorian style of your glasshouse. Our greenhouse benches provide you with the ideal space for propagating, transplanting seedlings and displaying your potted plants.
  • High Level Shelving – optimised for plants that prefer hotter temperatures and more sunlight by placing them closer to the glass. The aluminum greenhouse shelves are also ideal for increasing the capacity of your greenhouse and provides storage space for items that are best not watered, such as seeds and tools.
  • External Greenhouse Shades – introduces a barrier between the sun and glass which is the most effective way of reducing heat and scorch in your greenhouse.
  • Ornamental Floor Grids – cast iron grates that allow for both heating and drainage within your greenhouse. They can also be used simply for decoration, to enhance the flooring inside your structure.
  • Greenhouse Heater – a free-standing heater that can easily be moved around your greenhouse. It has a range of temperature settings and increases the air flow.

These are just a few options you can consider to make your greenhouse unique to you and your growing needs. Request our latest brochure to find out more about our accessories and discover inspiration for your own greenhouse, including a variety of previous projects with multiple internal layouts.
