The Scotney


Request A Brochure

The Scotney greenhouse is a gable-ended structure ideal for all keen growers with limited gardening space. It provides a manageable and productive area where you can further increase your growing space with the addition of sturdy aluminium accessories such as benching or cold frames

Smaller greenhouses require less energy to heat, therefore our heater is the ideal solution to increasing the temperature during cooler periods within The Scotney greenhouse. Like all our greenhouses, we replicate the original Victorian aesthetic with our design and engineering; with 12-inch wide glass panels, low gutter line and narrow glazing bars powder coated to imitate wood.

Details & Personalisation

Once you’ve chosen your greenhouse style and colour you also have the opportunity to embellish your greenhouse further.

Cresting – this runs along the ridge of the greenhouse, you can opt to remove the traditional cresting for a more contemporary look.
Finials – these are the decorative points that are traditionally situated at each end of the greenhouse roof and at the front of each lobby. You can choose between ball or spike finials, or no finials at all.
Spandrel – Our spandrels are decorative as well as structural. These cast iron fittings are available in the Alitex A emblem or a rose design.
Door Furniture – We have three standard door handle choices with the option to upgrade to a further two designs. Your hinge, hook, and plaque will compliment your chosen door handle finish.


  • All of our greenhouses are made from aluminium and glass, which is infinitely recyclable. We are often asked why you should choose an aluminium greenhouse. As one of the planet’s most inexhaustible resources, aluminium is a sustainable, lightweight and high-strength material. It is extremely resistant to rust and corrosion, therefore the perfect choice for creating beautiful glasshouses that will stand the test of time. 
  • Your greenhouse frame will be powder coated, low maintenance and durable, meaning your structure requires very little effort to keep it in such good condition when compared with other materials.

Our greenhouses are made from aluminium, which is infinitely recyclable. The finishing touches – spandrels, finials and cresting are all cast aluminium – the way the Victorians made them. Every greenhouse is fitted with 4mm toughened safety glass.

Paint & Finish

Our structures are powder coated in our factory and then baked in our ovens to create a tough, durable, semi-gloss finish. We offer bespoke colours and finishes, including a marine finish to protect against the elements of the coast.

Our vents are placed on opposing sides of the greenhouse to create a chimney effect. The manual opening side vents open from below the gutter line. The air is then drawn through the automated roof vents to create adequate ventilation for your plants.

“We cannot fault the service. From the moment we rang Alitex they were efficient and easy to deal with. We are thrilled with the finished product, and it is worth the cost to know that it is really maintenance-free.”
