WORLD’S COOLEST HOTHOUSE
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).
