Family greenhouse in shiplake helps raise money for charity
Keen gardeners Zoe and Peter Walker from Shiplake near Henley on Thames are enjoying their new Griffin Glasshouses greenhouse which they are using to grow summer flowering plants from seed.
Their beautiful 3m by 4.9m Rosemary greenhouse with porch is from Griffin Glasshouses National Garden Scheme range which means the National Garden Scheme receives 5% of the proceeds from the sale of every greenhouse in this collection.
Every year gardens across England and Wales welcome about 750,000 visitors. Most gardens that open for the National Garden Scheme are privately owned and open just a few times each year. Some gardens open as part of a group with the whole community involved.
The gardens give all the money raised directly to the National Garden Scheme and the charities supported include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Help the Hospices, Crossroads Care and Alzheimer’s Society.
“We chose Griffin Glasshouses because of how professional and knowledgeable they are and it’s great that our new greenhouse has helped to raise money for the worthy National Garden Scheme charities,” said Zoe.
“We use the greenhouse to mainly sit, rest and take photos of our garden antiques. We love our new greenhouse it is a great addition to our garden.”
Griffin’s greenhouses are thoroughly 21st century in design and boasts traditional Victorian style architectural features including steep-pitched roofs. They are produced from the highest quality, maintenance-free aluminium.
