Freestanding Staging for Greenhouse

Answered by Jo Posted in Category Greenhouse

Hi Jo

I'm thinking about buying an 8ft x 6ft superior greenhouse and am not quite sure about the staging. The base for the greenhouse is on patio slabs and I plan to have staging on one side so I can grow tomatoes in pots on the other side. I like the idea of the two tier staging with the bottom wooden slatted shelf but am confused by the sizing.


Can I order an 8ft freestanding unit to fit the length of the 8ft greenhouse? I wouldn't want to have just a 6ft staging stand and lose 2ft of space.


Ideally I would prefer the integral staging but this doesn't have a lower shelf. I'm finding the website a bit confusing.


Any tips before I buy would be appreciated.



Dear Sarah

Thank you for your email regarding our staging.  Please accept my apologies for the delay in replying to your enquiry.


You can order an 8ft length of staging to fit the 8ft side of your greenhouse.  It will fit the space perfectly.  I have very recently installed this staging in our greenhouse here in Stephanie’s Kitchen Garden and can thoroughly recommend it. 


The assembly was straightforward and the finished product looks amazing.  I would also recommend the work tray – I find it a joy to use and it is a good height, where I have found other potting benches a little low which can lead to back ache.



If you are having difficulty with your order on the website, please call our telephone number on 0333 400 1500.  Our customer service staff will be more than happy to discuss your requirements and help you with your order.


Should you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Kind Regards
