Glasshouse and greenhouse 2023 predictions

We've talked recently about keeping more of an eye out on greenhouse-based shedworking so we thought we'd ask Lancashire-based Hartley Botanic what it expects will be the biggest glasshouse and greenhouse trends for 2023:



Last year, they reported a trend in customers choosing to powder coat their greenhouses in modern shades of black and manganese graphite to make dramatic, contemporary statements - they were increasingly looking for minimalist structures. For 2023, Hartley Botanic is predicting that customers will be returning to more classic colours and designs when it comes to styles, with the majority of people choosing a traditional aesthetic. It is also predicting that customers will opt for more traditional, classic colours such as olive leaf and forest green, and white may be making a comeback.



Over the last few years there has been a renewed focus and investment by homeowners in their outdoor spaces and this is now extending into greenhouse and glasshouse purchases. Increasingly, customers are choosing them as grand centrepieces to complete beautifully designed garden spaces and are also taking the customisation of their greenhouses to the next level, adding in unique features and customising them with highly personal touches. Tom Barry, CEO of Hartley Botanic, said: “There is an uplift in demand for increasingly grand and personal gardens spaces. Customers are getting even more creative about how they use and enjoy their greenhouses and they are being planned into large scale landscaping projects. The appetite to upgrade our gardens shows no sign of slowing down.”



A theme Hartley Botanic referenced in its 2022 RHS tradestands as we reported earlier in the year, 2023 will be all about using them for wellbeing and relaxation. In 2023, Hartley Botanic expects to see more customers curating the interiors of their greenhouse spaces so they function as havens of calm and relaxation. This will include investing more time and energy into how they are organised and what accessories are selected, or left out. At Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton Park RHS shows, Hartley Botanic demonstrated this with structures which were paired back in terms of furniture and featured design elements carefully curated to exude order and tranquility, rather than clutter.
