The Heritage Cedar Greenhouse

Heritage Greenhouse made from Western Red Cedar

The above wooden Victorian Heritage glasshouse is 8ft x 14ft – all delivered and installed in Herefordshire for a cost of £16,390 inc VAT

Since the eighteenth-century exotic plants, fruits and flowers have been imported by explorers and travelers from all over the world into our cooler northern hemisphere. The aspiration to cultivate such species dates back to the 1800’s and a basic structure being designed to shelter and tender young plants. Due to the costly materials and manufacturing involved, such buildings were limited to the likes of aristocracy and wealthy landowners. In time, through research and development, the early glasshouse was produced. In 1858 Messrs Messenger & Co – Horticultural Builders and Hot Water Engineers were established with the likes of Boulton & Paul Ltd in 1864, and due to popular demand, many more glasshouse producers to follow between 1870 and 1890. The popularity and nation’s love of gardening was born.

In celebration of our 25th year in British manufacturing, recognition to history, and our nation’s love of gardening we are proud to introduce our unique Heritage collection of glasshouses.

The Heritage Glasshouse Inspired by the original Messenger & Co glasshouse, we have created replicas for such recognised bodies as The National Trust, together with various listed buildings of historical importance and gardens of England. The Heritage has been created for the most discerning. Our western red cedar is tight grained, heartwood which is supplied by members of the Timber Federation who recognise the responsibility and importance of the quality of timber they supply. In addition, all of our timber is PEFC certificated and therefore legally and sustainably fell, protecting the forests and supporting communities for future generations. The glasshouse features gothic style doors, handcrafted sculptured supporting frames and chamfered rafters.

In keeping with the original Messenger and also Boulton & Paul glasshouses we include a mechanised roof and side ventilation system, with Victorian style ironwork fitted throughout to maximise the strength of the glasshouse. Each glasshouse is individually handcrafted and made to your exact specification.
