Today we are looking at the best metal or if you prefer and want to get technical about it, aluminium greenhouse retailers, but we know that most of us just call them metal greenhouses. Anyway we spent a lot of time on each of these sites so we could see who as the best selection and who offers the most user friendly experience. This is one very competitive list which was tough to put together, but by the end of this you will know who are the best metal greenhouse retailers and be on your way to growing some awesome vegetables and plants.

Waltons truly is a fantastic site and they have all their metal greenhouses in one place. Like most other greenhouse retailers on this list these are in an aluminium section, but you get the idea. Waltons have the largest selection of greenhouses and they make it very easy to filter their greenhouse section so that it does not include any wooden  more...

or plastic greenhouses. We like this as it makes finding what you are wanting very easy. Not only do they have the best selection, but they are also the easiest site to use. They give great information and most of their greenhouses do have a few different pictures for you to look at and imagine how great your plants will look inside.

Taylors Garden Buildings came so close to taking our top spot and we are sure that after some browsing on their site some of you will feel that they should have. Now they do have their own dedicated greenhouse section on their site, but from there you are greeted with more sub sections that break down all the greenhouses they have into even  more...

more categories. Sure it may take a little time to click through them all, but the diversity in the greenhouses they offer is just incredible and we feel that it is well worth taking the time to look through them all. If you are a person who wants to take their time when it comes to purchasing their metal greenhouse, then you are going to have a lot of fun using this site.

With a little under 60 metal greenhouses on their site, Buy Sheds Direct do have a very impressive selection for you to look at. We really like how they have them in all different kinds of sizes so no matter if you are a first time gardener looking to wet your beak in the world of plant growing or a seasoned gardener with years of experience, then  more...

you will find the right kind of greenhouse for you right here. The site is easy to browse and we like how when you do find a greenhouse you like the look of and click on it, the information is not overwhelming, but it still tells you all you need to know as well as showing a few different photos as well.

Gardens Buildings Direct are one of the few retailers who actually have a section called metal greenhouses so they get two thumbs up for that. They do not have the largest selection of metal greenhouses, but what we really like about this site is how the greenhouses they do have come in different sizes. So when you see one that takes your  more...

fancy, you can click on it and then choose what size you want. Some even have a set of different extras that can go with it, so you can have a little play around with the design if you wish. We really liked this site and feel that they do a great job in making it easy to understand exactly what each greenhouse is offering.

While Sheds.co.uk do not offer the largest selection of metal greenhouses on this list, the reason we ranked them so high is that they cater for those who want a greenhouse that is of a more high quality. You will not find any cheap and cheerful greenhouses here. This is for those of you who only want to consider the best of the best. While  more...

we do feel each greenhouse could have benefited from a couple more pictures, Sheds.co.uk do have one of the easiest to follow descriptions of their greenhouses that we have ever seen. They break down all the need to know info into little chunks which makes it easy to understand. While they may not be ideal for those of you on a tight budget, those who only want to consider the best should make this one of the first sites they look at.

Shed Store is a fantastic site and when you click on their greenhouse section, you will be greeted with pages and pages of great looking greenhouses for you to browse. So you may be wondering why they have not cracked the top five? Well the reason for this is that they do not have any sub sections for their greenhouses, so they are all  more...

mixed together which means you will have to click through multiple pages to see all they have. Now to be fair this is not all that much work, but when other sites make looking at their metal greenhouses that little bit more easier, we have to rank them higher. Two of the best things about Shed Store are their product information and their incredibly fast delivery times. Some greenhouses can be delivered to you in as little as two days.

Wickes actually have far more metal greenhouses than we thought they would and to be honest with you we are sure some of you may feel they deserved to be a spot or two higher up on this list. They have a great selection of lower cost and high priced greenhouses on their site and they do have multiple categories which is great if you do not  more...

want to have to look through pages and pages of greenhouses that do not meet your needs. While the information that they give you about their greenhouses is great, we do feel that they could have used more photos to show them off and also a few extras on each page would not have hurt. This is Wickes after all and they have a ton of useful stuff that would go great with a greenhouse, so it is very surprising they do not show it off more.

The Homebase website really did make us raise our eyebrows and nod our head in approval with their very decent selection of metal greenhouses. We love how they have many different styles of greenhouse that cater to all kinds of budgets. We do wish that they would let you only look at metal, wooden or plastic greenhouses instead of lumping  more...

them all together, but this is something a couple other sites have done as well so we will not be too down on them for that. While they do not have lots of pictures for their greenhouses (as a matter of fact most only have one picture), the detail they give is just spot on as it gives you all the need to know info and is not too complex so even a person buying their first greenhouse would not be overwhelmed here.

B&Q do not have one of the largest selections of metal greenhouses on this list, but the ones that they do have are quite varied in their design and also their pricing. While they do put all their greenhouses together in one category, one feature that they have which we really like is how you can separate them into ones that come with a base and  more...

ones that do not. They also have detailed descriptions and most of the greenhouses they offer do have at least a couple of pictures. To be fair while this is number nine on our list, B&Q is still a fine metal greenhouse retailer that is worth a look.

We were very impressed with the vast amount of metal greenhouses that Sheds World offered and the fact they are in their own section was something that was nice to see. When you click on one of their metal greenhouses, you do get all the vital information that you need, but we do feel that a few more pictures would have really helped. While  more...

we like the selection, the way the site is easy to use and the fact they have an actual metal greenhouse section, but we must say the fact that they do not stock the products themselves makes us concerned that the delivery times could be rather lengthy. Also when it comes to customer service, Sheds World do not have the best reputation out there so be sure to make sure you have checked all the other sites before ordering here.
