Our 1.5m (5') wide, laminated, UV stabilised 20mm bubble wrap greenhouse insulation is the real deal - beware of the packing bubble wrap where you can easily burst the bubbles with your fingers as this won't do the job.

This is my second order from Harrod for this insulation and really there's not much you can say about bubble insulation - it seems good enough quality - long term UV stability will be the real concern. Only time will tell how good and UV stable it really is - thus 3 stars for Performance as I don't yet know. This is going in part to replace some 25 year old bubble plastic that was getting a little 'war-torn' and if this lasts as long it'll see me out fine and will probably be a little too late to update this review :-).
Have ordered this bubble twice over the last few years. Very pleased with quality and very easy to put up in greenhouse.
How to Insulate the Greenhouse
It’s a great idea to line the inside of your greenhouse during the winter – it’s economical, quick, will frost-proof the structure and can extend the growing season for up to 6 weeks. Working out how much bubble insulation (product code GHE-015) you need and just how to fit it can be a problem, so the chart below will give a rough guide to what you’ll need!
Size of Greenhouse (feet) Amount of Bubble Wrap Required
6 x 4 14m (2 rolls, 1.5m wide)
6 x 8 18m (2 rolls, 1.5m wide)
8 x 10 21m (3 rolls, 1.5m wide)
8 x 12 27m (3 rolls, 1.5m wide)
Don’t forget to allow 3 alliplugs (GHE-009) and spacers (GHE-010) per glazing bar; likewise with the corner adaptors (GHE-011).
When fitting the insulation, the following information may help.
- Measure from the floor to the apex of the greenhouse up one side and back down other, and cut the insulation to length.
- Go to the back of the greenhouse, away from the door then fold the insulation in half and secure the middle to the top ridge.
- Work along each glazing bar securing the insulation to the roof and sides with the alliplugs.
- Have a sharp knife handy to cut the bubble wrap where the vents and windows are sited. Repeat for the next panel, gradually working towards the door.
- The end panel which includes the door is best tackled by attaching the insulation to the outside of the structure, cutting to size and then securing inside.
- Simply cut the insulation which covers the door as this will allow both access and the bubble wrap to hang down – it’s a good tip to allow extra bubble wrap below the door which you can fold and weigh down, allowing less cold air to enter.

This bubble wrap has 20mm air pockets which creates more efficient thermal stability. Basically a larger cavity gives better protection from frosts. A single layer acting as a curtain is all you would need to remove the risk of freeze burn. Don't forget the fact that you can manipulate bubble insulation as a ground fleece or cloche too
