The Solexx Conservatory Greenhouse is an outstanding addition to any garden, whether is for a commercial nursery, school, community project, or large hobby garden. This model is popular for its spacious design and 9.5′ high ceiling

The growing possibilities are endless with a greenhouse of this size! You can cultivate seedlings to large plants and even small trees can easily be grown. The growing space is multiplied by two single-tier, side benches that run the length of the outer walls. A large 5′ wide, double-tiered, bench frame sits in the center of the greenhouse structure. This bench is perfect for classroom settings so all students can view, or for situations where multiple greenhouse gardeners are working together. In addition to the side shelves and bench frame, you will also appreciate the 60 linear feet of hanging rods for baskets and trailing plants.

Four single hinged, lockable doors allow easy access to the entire growing area from either end of your greenhouse. They can be used in addition to the two Louver vents with auto opener to provide adequate air flow in your greenhouse. The Solexx Conservatory includes the proprietary Solexx™ panels which diffuse light and accelerate plant growth by 25-30%. The panels also include a UV inhibitor and come with a 10 year warranty.

This large greenhouse still remains simple to assemble. It comes with a built-in base and does not require a separate foundation. When you are ready to expand, this greenhouse can be extended in 8′ sections to accommodate your growing needs.  With a heavy-duty composite frame that is guaranteed to be rust, corrosion and mildew free, you will enjoy the Solexx Conservatory Greenhouse for years of gardening!

FAQs

General Questions

Is a Solexx greenhouse easy to heat?

Although it seems like slim panels, Solexx performs very well in the winter. The 3.5 and 5 mm twin-walled Polyethylene loses less heat than 8mm triple-walled Polycarbonate. Let’s look at some numbers. R-value stands for insulation factor (higher is better) and U-value stands for heat loss (lower is better):

  • 5mm Solexx: 2.30 R, 0.43 U
  • 3.5mm Solexx: 2.10 R, 0.48 U
  • 8mm triple-walled Polycarbonate: 2.0 R, 0.50 U
  • 10mm twin-walled Polycarbonate: 1.89 R, 0.53 U
  • 8mm twin-walled Polycarbonate (standard): 1.60 R, 0.63 U
  • 3mm single pane glass: 0.95 R, 1.05 U

This means that you won’t need much heating in your Solexx greenhouse. You may only need big black buckets filled with water. They will heat up during the day and retain the heat for the nighttime. A small greenhouse heater might be needed if your area gets very cold with little sun.

Is the greenhouse portable and/or can it be disassembled?

The greenhouse is portable in one piece. It can be moved on a trailer from one area to another for the best light. It may not be possible to move larger greenhouses. Disassembly of the greenhouse is not suggested. The panels are attached to the frame with screws, and once the screws are removed realigning the panels to the pipe would be very difficult. The construction also involves glue that cannot be disassembled.

What is the difference between Garden Master and Gardener’s Oasis?

The difference is the shape. The Garden Master has a conventional “house” shape while the Gardener’s Oasis has an arched shape like a tunnel greenhouse.

Do all Solexx greenhouses have windows?

Yes, they all come with large Louver windows. If you pick the Deluxe option, you will get an automatic solar opener for the Louver vent(s) which works without electricity and base vents for more airflow. The only exception is the Early Bloomer which features a regular side vent for the back.

Assembly & Preparation

How do I prepare the site for my greenhouse?

There are plenty of options for you to prepare the ground before setting up the greenhouse. You can place your Solexx greenhouse on any leveled area because it has an integrated base frame. We usually recommend gravel, dirt, or pea rock. A south facing area is best to get the maximum sun exposure.

What tools are needed to assemble the greenhouse?

Assembly requires tools most have readily available. You will need a screwdriver, variable speed drill, sharp knife or utility knife, tape measure, step ladder, caulk, caulking gun, clear PVC glue, and a level.

How long will it take to assemble the greenhouse?

Most kits will take a weekend for two people to assemble.

Accessories

Do I need to add shelves to the bench frames?

There are bench shelves available that are specially designed to fit the Solexx greenhouses. You can also design your own shelving to fit on top of the bench frames, for example by using wood slats and 1/2″ open wire mesh (hardware cloth). Whatever material you choose, keep in mind that plants grow better when there is some airflow beneath the roots.

How can I maintain an adequate temperature in the greenhouse in the summer?

With the Deluxe kits, solar vent openers are included to assist in keeping the greenhouse cool. No electricity is required to operate these openers. However, this may not be enough for your area. You can also add more ventilation or an exhaust fan in order to keep the temperature low.

What heaters do you recommend?

This highly depends on the size of the greenhouse and how you want to use your greenhouse in winter. We offer some heaters here, but you may just check out a local hardware shop that provides more options. If you want to learn more about greenhouse heaters, read this guide first.
