New Greenhouse for Alpines at RHS Wisley

Freestanding traditional greenhouse

When it came to re-building the Alpine House at RHS Wisley gardens, Director of Horticulture Jim Gardiner, felt that an Alitex greenhouse would be the perfect replacement for their existing timber structure.

The freestanding, traditional Alitex greenhouse that can be found at RHS Wisley now is approached up a steep set of stairs which wends its way through rockeries and trailing plants. Jim had certain requests that our design team worked into the final design; a special width door was required and it needed to replicate the old timber door exactly to keep the charm. We also added manual working roof vents, as the existing rack and pinion operated by chain wheels, worked well for this type of greenhouse.

The effort is rewarded by a beautiful display of alpine plants in the Alitex greenhouse. Cara Smith, leader of the Alpine House team, said: “we reserve the very best plants, at the height of their fabulousness, for the Alitex greenhouse."
