Hartley Botanic is a historic Greenhouse and Glasshouse manufacturer based in Greenfield, Lancashire. The company was founded in 1938 by brothers Vincent (RHS fellow) and Norman Hartley following their groundbreaking aluminium Greenhouse design – to our knowledge, the UK’s first aluminium Greenhouse. Today, Hartley Botanic’s reputation has been built on 80 years of British craftmanship, creating handmade Greenhouse and Glasshouse structures known for their enduring strength, quality and performance. It is the greenhouse manufacturer of choice for the UK’s leading horticulture organisations, institutions and designers with ‘Hartleys’ commissioned by the RHS, the National Trust, Kew Gardens, Blenheim Palace, The Lingholm Estate and Hampton Court Palace...to name a few. Hartley Botanic is the only aluminium Greenhouse and Glasshouse manufacturer endorsed by the RHS.
