Family glasshouse in Shiplake helps raise money for charity

Keen gardeners Zoe and Peter Walker from Shiplake near Henley on Thames have purchased a new Griffin Glasshouses greenhouse which they are using to grow summer flowering plants from seed.

Their beautiful 3m by 4.9m Rosemary glasshouse with porch is from Griffin Glasshouses National Gardens Scheme (NGS) range which means the NGS receives 5% of the proceeds from the sale of every glasshouse in this collection.

Every year NGS gardens across England and Wales welcome about 750,000 visitors.  Most gardens which open for the NGS are privately owned and open just a few times each year.  Some gardens open as part of a group with the whole community involved.

The gardens give all the money raised directly to the NGS and the charities supported include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Help the Hospices, Crossroads Care and Alzheimer’s Society.

“We chose Griffin Glasshouses because of how professional and knowledgeable they are and it’s great that our new glasshouse has helped to raise money for the worthy NGS charities,” said Zoe.

“We use the glasshouse to mainly sit, rest and take photos of our garden antiques.  We love our new greenhouse it is a great addition to our garden.”

Griffin Glasshouses are thoroughly 21st century in design and boast traditional Victorian style architectural features including steep-pitched roofs.  They are produced from the highest quality, maintenance-free aluminium.
