Bringing back a Victorian style and modernising with present day features the Elite Thyme is a stunning greenhouse that would make an excellent feature in your garden. Each pane of glass is 1ft wide compared to the usual 2ft wide on most greenhouses, this not only gives a classic look to your greenhouse but also means there are twice the amount of glazing bars which makes an extremely strong building.

Designed to go on to a 762mm high wall, we can sometimes accommodate a different height wall but please contact us to check first. Only build your base when you have received an official Elite base plan.

Packed with standard features such as low level threshold for ease of access, the extremely attractive crestings and finials that go along the length of the ridge that also have the added benefit of deterring birds, two 12" wide 5 blade louvres for low level air flow, cantilever bracing for strength, and 8ft diamond 2 slat staging.

The tall double sliding doors are on the 8ft 5" width and roof vents are supplied on each model. Supplied in long pane toughened glass for attractiveness and safety.

Choice of Elite's high quality powder coated colours, all prices on this page are for painted accessories to match your greenhouse frame.

    Aluminium Buildings : 4-5 Weeks

    All Painted Buildings : 10-14 Weeks        *Compact, Streamline, Craftsman, High Eave & Belmont models only: 8-10 weeks*


    Options Information

    Powder Coated Colours

    High quality, hard wearing, professional powder coated finish. Co-ordinate your greenhouse to your garden with this choice of 11 colours.

    All colours come with nut caps to hide the aluminium nuts in your greenhouse, this gives a clean professional finish.


    Toughened Glass - Elite only use Grade A toughened glass to standard EN12150, this is long pane sheets for a neater finish and eliminates any overlapping which can have an algae and moss build up. Much stronger than horticultural glass these panes will granulate if broken removing the danger of serious injury.

    Extra Roof Window

    Additional roof vents can be purchased for added ventilation, the drop down box will show the maximum available to fit your greenhouse. All extra roof vents are supplied with the correct glazing and are the same powder coated finish as your chosen frame.

    Auto Vent

    These are probably the most common accessory sold with greenhouses along with staging. Automatically opens the roof window according to temperature up to 18" to allow maximum ventilation, these are easily fitted with the supplied clamps and no drilling is required. Choose one for each window you wish to automatically open.

    7 Slat Staging

    Elite's super strong diamond aluminium staging which has been designed with the exact greenhouse in mind. This is a fixed staging which utilises cantilever bracing attached directly to the framework for extra stability and strength, the staging can be fixed at the height which is best for you and runs the full length of either the side or back of your greenhouse.The slatted design is ideal for fluid drainage and allows extra ventilation to any produce placed on the work surface. Powder coated to match your frame choice. 26" wide. 

    2 Slat Shelving

    Narrower than the staging but otherwise the same this shelving can be positioned at any height and adds extra working area in your greenhouse.Staging and shelves are supplied in easy to assemble kit form and will not rust, rot or deteriorate in humid greenhouse conditions. Powder coated to match the greenhouse frame. 7½" wide.

    Bar Capping

    Bar Capping adds a decorative finish for your greenhouse and also a much stronger hold for the glazing. The capping is used as well as the wire clips and is simply screwed over the bars and clips using the colour coded screws provided. Not only does this add extra protection for your greenhouse and is ideal for those in more exposed areas, but the rubber fin also makes a better water seal between the frame and the glass. Choose from black which is universal or to match your powder coated frame colour.Not recommended with overlapping horticultural glass.


    Louvres provide low level ventilation and are an excellent accessory. Humid and stagnant air can cause condensation which develops mould and disease, by adding louvres to the rear or side of your building fresh air is drawn in and encourages circulation. These 5 blade matching powder coated louvres are supplied with toughened glass.


    These automatic louvre openers will open and close your louvre for you depending on the air temperature. You will need one Autolouvre for each louvre you wish to open automatically. Please note that some drilling is required to fit this accessory.

    Rainwater Kits

    You will be amazed at the amount of water that you can collect off a greenhouse roof, it would be a shame to waste it! These are designed to be used with Elite's unique half round gutter only and are available in 2 forms.
    Standard - Each kit comprises of parts to fit one side of your greenhouse. One stopper is supplied to fit one end of your greenhouses built in gutter, for the other end connectors and pipe are supplied to make a rainwater downpipe which can then be fitted into a water barrel or simply to direct the water where you wish.
    To One Gutter - This clever system connects both gutters to one side, similar in style to the standard system and supplied with an extra stopper and connectors for both gutters and a tranverse pipe which is placed along the rear of the greenhouse, this allows the water to be carried to a single point.

    Water Barrels

    Elite offer 2 sizes of water barrel to complement the rainwater kits, made from ridged moulded plastic choose from the standard 210 litre (46 gallons) or if space is limited choose the slimline 100 litre version.

    When fitted to the low cost stand or raised on bricks these allow access to the incorporated tap at the bottom of the barrel.

    Extra Doors In Rear

    Choose the option to have an extra set of double doors in the rear of your building allowing you access from both ends. This handy option allows you to walk straight through your greenhouse! Powder coated to match your frame colour.

    Single Door Partition

    This useful option allows you to have two environments in your greenhouse such as hot and cold. Perfect for bringing on seeds without having to heat the entire greenhouse or for more exotic plants. Matching powder coated finish.

    String/Wire Tying Eyes

    Dual purpose hooks that are easily attached to your greenhouse by simply twisting in to place. Use the built-in cable hook for electrical wires, also has a hole for running string/wire through to attach plant supports and similar. Supplied in a pack of 6.

    Elite Thyme dwarf wall greenhouse
    02 July 2020  |  Kathryn

    Firstly my thanks to Adrian at SW Greenhouses who answered my many questions and helped me to ensure I choose the right specification. Polite, friendly and professional - customer service at its best. The greenhouse is top quality, a sturdy and aesthetically pleasing structure that adds to the gardens interest rather than being one of those that people try to hide behind a hedge or trellis. Elite contacted me to arrange delivery and this went smoothly. It wasn’t the easiest to erect and the instructions were not particularly intuitive, however allow double the time you anticipate or pay for a professional installation! I would highly recommend SW Greenhouses and Elite. Thank you.

    Beautiful Greenhouse
    27 August 2015  |  Aideen

    I got the green finish and paid to have the greenhouse put up. Both well worth the extra cost. It would not be easy to put up with no experience. A very well made high quality product, It looks beautiful.
