Greenhouses: Hartley Botanic

We often tend to overlook that lots of people who go to work in the garden actually work in the garden itself and that greenhouses are very much shedlike environments housing many thousands of shedworkers around the world. So we're starting a regularly irregular column looking at precisely these icons of microarchitecture, beginning today with one of the oldest players in the market, Hartley Botanic which was establised over 70 years ago who indeed say on their web site that: "Greenhouses and glasshouses are the artist's studio of the garden."

Their range covers four main models Clearspan, Kew, Landscape or Victorian Glasshouses (pictured top is The Grange with an attractive high, four-sided pyramid roof) as well as a bespoke service. We also rather like the simple yet elegant Cottage 6 greenhouse below.

There's also a nice section on accessories and in general it's an easy website to find your way around. Well worth a browse.
