This keeps the ground warm, promoting easy growth of vegetables, flowers, plants

A Fitlock Shadehouse provides a cool shady environment during hot summers, and
frost protection in winter.

Shadehouses are perfect for your delicates such as orchids, ferns and flowers,

waterproof roof to protect against excessive rain and heavy

If you require the benefits of both a Hothouse and a Shadehouse, you can combine

door to keep the two environments at different temperatures
- you can go 50/50, 70/30, whatever you need. Click here to
