SOLARDOME® POD 3.6m / from £6,400*

The POD enables schools to have the opportunity of owning the best possible under glass environment for nurturing and raising plants. The glasshouse dramatically increases the growing season enabling pupils to grow their own for the majority of the year without additional heating.

It is a compact dome making it ideal for schools with limited outdoor space or courtyards. Ideal as a quality school greenhouse its round shape makes it the best for growing and also accommodates more pupils than a traditional shaped greenhouse.

To maximise the growing potential we offer bespoke one and two tier staging units – you can fit up to seven around a POD.

This dome has been designed for simple self-assembly with only two different glass patterns and two different struts lengths. It is ideal for sitting on decking or in a playground and doesn’t need foundations and very rarely requires planning permission.
