The First Greenhouse Challenge

The Hickmans from Surrey had long deliberated over the decision to purchase their first new greenhouse. For their first project they had thoroughly researched all the companies. Eventually, they decided on a beautiful greenhouse from Griffin Glasshouses’ National Garden Scheme collection. Their design of choice was the Griffin Sage greenhouse. 

Then, the family moved. Who did they turn to for a greenhouse on their new property? 

Of course, the answer was obvious. 

The Second Greenhouse Challenge

The Hickmans wanted the same quality they found before. This time, there was an added challenge: they downsized. 

Was it possible to get the same high-quality Victorian greenhouse, but in a smaller design?

The Solution – 5 Reasons Why Griffin why the Hickmans Chose Griffin

Once again, Griffin delivered exactly what the situation called for. This was in the form of:

  • A Thyme greenhouse
  • The greenhouse measures 2.6m x 3.7m
  • The structure includes a feature porch

In summary, Julia mentions the following as her reasons for not hesitating to pick Griffin Greenhouses:

  1. They are attractive in design
  2. The greenhouse requires little maintenance
  3. The family can utilise it all year round
  4. Griffin Greenhouse products always please clients
  5. The company also offers exceptional service

 

The Hickmans plan to use the greenhouse throughout the year. This will include:

  • Growing seeds in the spring
  • Producing tomatoes and cucumbers in the summer
  • Storing their tender garden plants over the autumn and winter

A Note on Griffin’s Partnership with Charity

Both the Sage and Thyme glasshouses are from Griffin’s National Garden Scheme collection. The charity receives 5% of the proceeds from every greenhouse sold.
