WORLD’S COOLEST HOTHOUSE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape Gardens -

Pure Green­house show­cased its ‘frame­less’ glass model at Chelsea Flower Show this sum­mer and was greeted with a rap­tur­ous re­sponse: at last, a por­ta­ble, mod­ern green­house that looks beau­ti­ful to boot. It’s also ex­tremely user-friendly: no plan­ning per­mis­sion is re­quired (it can be dis­man­tled in 30 min­utes, and so falls into the ‘tem­po­rary con­struc­tion’ cat­e­gory), and the 10mm re­in­forced glass means the panes can’t be smashed by a neigh­bour’s foot­ball. Plus, the poly­mer coat­ing al­lows dirt and grubby rain­wa­ter to slide off, so the glass stays shiny and un­clouded. Now is a good time to in­vest – Oc­to­ber is the month to sow sweet pea, mangetout and salad leaf seeds in trays, keep them in­side for a cou­ple of weeks to ger­mi­nate and then leave them to grow in the green­house. From £1,999 (pure­green­house.co.uk).
