New charity glasshouse collection to be unveiled by Alan Titchmarsh

Griffin Glasshouses has announced plans to launch two new glasshouse designs and gardening favourite Alan Titchmarsh will be officially unveiling them at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May.

The new models are an expansion of the incredibly popular NGS range of glasshouses that Griffin launched six years ago to support the leading gardening charity which is the most significant charitable funder of nursing and caring charities in the country.

The specialist glasshouse designer and manufacturer has supported the NGS since 2012 and the new Lavender and Tarragon are the latest additions to the exclusive range, which sees 5% of proceeds being donated to the charity. To date Griffin Glasshouses has donated £45,099.08.

The Lavender will be on the stand at the Chelsea Flower Show, retailing at £28,000. It measures 3.6m x 6.5m. The second of the new models is The Tarragon, which, including its double door, is the largest in the entire Griffin NGS range measuring 3.6m x 8.1m, prices starting from £34,000. The NGS range currently consists of five other models – The Sorrel, The Thyme, The Fennell, The Sage and The Rosemary.

Both designs are free standing with a porch. Glasshouses in the NGS collection are produced in the traditional Victorian style which Griffin is famed for, with steep pitched roofs, narrow glazing panels, decorative spandrels inside and finished with exquisite detail to the ridge fittings and finials. They are made by Griffin Glasshouses at its Hampshire workshop using the highest quality, maintenance free aluminium that is specifically designed to the give the appearance of traditional wood.

Speaking about the new products and their launch, managing director of Griffin Glasshouses, Linda Lane, commented: “We can’t wait to unveil our new products at the Chelsea Flower Show with Alan Titchmarsh. We’ve been so delighted by the reaction to the existing NGS range that we were keen to expand it as soon as possible and what better platform than the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show.”

The NGS was founded in 1859 and has grown to be the most significant charitable funder of nursing and caring charities in the country, donating over £50m so far, through money raised via its open gardens programme. Currently, more than 3,700 gardens nationwide open their gates for the NGS each year.

As well as the Chelsea Flower Show, Griffin Glasshouses will also be exhibiting at the RHS Chatsworth and Hampton Court Flower Shows where visitors will be able to see the new NGS designs.
