Using Your Conservatory All Year Round


The weather in Britain is… unpredictable. Improving your home with a conservatory allows you to enjoy your garden all year round, come rain or shine (or sleet or hail…) As summer draws to a close, check out our guide to getting full use of your conservatory in all four seasons.

The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is also the season of stunning autumn foliage. The trees and shrubs of your garden give spectacular displays of golds and russets. You can watch all this unfold from the comfort of your conservatory – just remember to follow our tips on cleaning your conservatory roof if the leaves build up.


Some birds fly south for the winter; others stay; others still arrive from the frozen arctic climes. Hanging bird feeders in your garden allows you to watch them all whilst staying snug in your heated conservatory. Some pot plants that would not survive the frost outside can be brought inside to winter in your conservatory.


Time for a party – the first barbecue of the year, perhaps?  A conservatory is the perfect place to shelter if a sudden downpour briefly interrupts your plans. For the green-fingered who enjoy growing plants from seed, your conservatory makes a great nursery.

Throw the windows open, gather flowers for your vases, summer’s here again! Your conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea and keep an eye on the kids playing in the garden – especially if the British summer weather is living up to its reputation.
