Non-Stop Rhinos! Delivered and Installed No Matter What
Spring is finally on the cusp of sprouting, and I for one cannot wait!
The last week of February brought blessed sunshine across our green and pleasant land - and for the first time in a while, it finally feels like we deserve that poetic description. Our social media channels were flooded with gardening joy as pockets of Rhino love popped onto our feeds and into our inboxes. It is genuinely wonderful to see. Some of you will be looking forward to your first growing season in your brand new greenhouse and have been waiting out the long lockdown winter.
"You know spring is on its way when you look down the garden and the Rhino's windows have opened!"

More recent weeks have brought strong winds and storms across some parts of the country. Our Rhinos have been standing up to the test, but if you think your greenhouse warrants some additional protection, we've got a blog to help you prepare - Preparing the Greenhouse for High Winds and Storms.
"Learning to always trust a Rhino - it lives up to its name and reputation even in stormy Perthshire."

It wasn't so long ago that we were seeing heavy snowfall in many counties. But come what may, our friendly delivery team and steadfast installers were out making your Rhino dreams come true. A few of you were even stood out in the cold yourselves, to document the exciting arrival - thanks to Sara Fitzimmons for these snowy pictures.
As ever, Rhinos are proving that they are ready for whatever the Great British weather might bring - but here's hoping the forecasts predict long periods of sunshine soon!

Rhino Classics Out of Stock
With demand for our Rhinos staying at a consistent high, we have had to take measures to make sure we can deliver quality products and excellent service. Therefore the decision was made to temporarily remove them from sale, prioritising our most popular range: Rhino Premiums - available to in a greater range of colours and sizes than could be found with the Classic, browse our range of Rhino Premiums.
