Mrs Stacey, Godalming, Surrey

A dome in their old and new garden“Our first dome gave my late husband and me so much pleasure over 24 years and was a real part of my home. When I moved house, another Solardome® glasshouse was a top priority to complete my new garden.”

As avid gardeners, Mr & Mrs Stacey chose a Solardome® glasshouse as the perfect structure for growing a host of different plants and flowers as well as providing protection for delicate citrus trees in the winter.  It also became a local talking point when the couple entered ‘Godalming in Bloom’ competitions over many years.

When Mrs Stacey moved to a smaller property, her 24-year-old Solardome® glasshouse was too large for her new garden, so she replaced it with a newer, more compact 4.52m SOLARDOME® Haven geodesic dome. However, her previous Solardome® glasshouse was still in such good condition that it was sold to a Scottish resident establishment and is now used as a Yoga retreat.

“After 24 years with our previous dome, I’m very happy with my new SOLARDOME® Haven. Not only does it provide me with somewhere sunny and warm to sit, but creates the ultimate growing environment and protection for my plants” said Mrs Stacey.
