See for yourself the quality of our greenhouses by visiting a show site!
Since 1921 Alton greenhouses have been famous amongst gardeners as the leading Cedar greenhouse on the market. Well known for the best quality Canadian red Cedar which gives the Alton greenhouses a long life, and a strong and stable frame.
The iconic sloping sided Amateur greenhouse has led the market for decades and at the time of its introduction in the 50s it was at the cutting edge of greenhouse design. Now, the Alton design team have been pooling their vast knowledge and experience, along with years of feedback from our customers in order to create a Cedar greenhouse fit for the 21st Century. We're calling it the Alton Evolution range...
Your Alton Evolution model is crafted in our own workshop in Staffordshire. Every piece of Cedar is machined in-house in our fully equipped workshop. Some of these machines have been reliably making Alton greenhouses for over 40 years. Other, more modern additions use CNC technology to give highly accurate results. Advances in machining and joinery technology have enabled for the first time a flat- packed greenhouse which actually takes no longer to assemble than the old system of awkward to handle fully glazed panels.
The Alton Vitorian is the original cedar Victorian greenhouse, the finest money can buy. With their elegant tall windows and steep 45° pitched roofs, the Alton Victorian collection of timber grenhouses recalls a time when this country fell in love with gardening under a glass.

The Alton Victorian greenhouse complete with matching cold frames formed the centrepiece of the Greenhouse People display stand at the Malvern show this Autumn. It must have caught the eye of the judges as they presented the stand with a silver-gilt medal, the highest award that we have ever won and one that rarely graces the world of greenhouses!
The display consisted of nine greenhouses including Alton models as well as Robinsons, Simplicity and Hercules greenhouses and the judges particularly liked the autumnal colour scheme of the planting in the specially made matching Cedar planters.
