Victorian Greenhouses
The Victorian Greenhouse is one of the premier greenhouses in the “Helios” line of greenhouses from Janssens of Belgium. This company has been making high-end glass greenhouses for over 30 years. Since the introduction of the Victorian model, in 1999, they have become a leading supplier of this style of greenhouse in Europe. We are proud to now be the USA distributor of this very fine greenhouse.

Multiple Sizes, Years of Design Improvements, and Still Amazingly Affordable

The Victorian Greenhouse not only provides a first-class quality greenhouse environment, it also adds significant old fashion English style and beauty to your backyard. This is a classic English greenhouse. Janssens has improved on the overall design and internal growing environment of this style of greenhouse since it's initial release, while keeping the price lower than comparable models in this class. Available in three different sizes, the Victorian Greenhouse is suitable for almost any backyard application.

Glass or Polycarbonate Construction - Choose Which Best For You

The Victorian Greenhouse line is available with either 4mm Tempered Glass or 10mm Triple Layer "X-Strong" Polycarbonate walls. Each choice has a unique set of advantages allowing you to pick the option which will work best for your needs.

Advantages of Tempered Glass

  • Full transparency is a better "look" for some applications, especially if using the structure for non plant-growing purposes
  • Maximum amount of natural light when using structure for growing plants
  • No fading or discoloration over lifespan
  • Flame resistant
  • Glass is a chemical free, environmentally friendly material

Advantages of Polycarbonate

  • Almost impossible to break, polycarbonate will flex and resist against things like objects hitting the panels or heavy wind and snow loads
  • Blocks harmful UV rays and creates a diffused light environment that promotes consistent light conditions throughout the interior of the structure
  • Has been shown to retain heat more efficiently than glass, an advantage in cold weather growing environments
  • Low maintenance, will demand less cleaning than glass while still looking great.

SPOTLIGHT: Retro Victorian Model

The Retro Victorian Greenhouse is similar to the Royal Victorian however it utilizes narrower 14" vertical panels of 4mm tempered glass, which may be an advantage in some weather situations, and also creates a different look by having decorative non-glass panels for the lower sections. The Retro Victorian is available in two spacious sizes. See specifications below for size details.

My Fun Fantastic Greenhouse

This is by far one of the most rewarding projects I have taken on!!! I have always wanted a greenhouse and when I saw this one...I spent a week doing research, and bought it. I got a late start on it so I built the frame and mounted on a concrete slab (not necessary...I just wanted it) it was too late to install the glass...so I waited for the first nice spring day and finished it off. Had great help from Andrew and staff...thank you. This is my second year with it and I totally love it!! I'm in Wisconsin so it's not practical for use in the winter other then setting it up to soak up the warmth on a nice sunny day and read a book with a glass of wine in a tee-shirt...even if it's 0 degrees!!!

Yes! I recommend this product.

LOVE LOVE LOVE MY GREENHOUSE!!!

I have had my Royal Victorian 10 x 15 Greenhouse for 9 months now and still absolutely love it!!! I live in Colorado near the foothills and we experience high winds, which is why I chose this particular greenhouse. So far it has stood up to the winds without fail!! I would recommend this Greenhouse (and Exaco Trading) to everyone!! You get personal service and they CARE about you and your purchase. I also paid extra to have it put together for me. For me it was all money well spent!!

Yes! I recommend this product.

Kathy T | 5/31/2016


Excellent greenhouse professional quality.

I purchased the vi23 two years ago and could not be more pleased. I have a very small yard would buy the biggest possible otherwise. I am a retired Horticulturist and have owned the double wall polycarbonate and aluminum in past. This product adds beauty and function with lasting quality to your home landscape. The staff were unbelievably helpful and prompt in service. The packaging of the greenhouse was top notch with no problems and the set up was quit basic as well, with the help of my carpenter Before the greenhouse arrived I received a phone call From Andrew Cook to make sure I had all the information I needed and he gave me tips and explanations to help assembly. I have a greenhouse that will last for many years. I live in Memphis Tennessee our zone is a 7b. I have added two small "dairy" type electric heaters , Lights and fan. I added the accessories kit when I purchased. The shade cloth is invaluable here in the mid-south.

Yes! I recommend this product.

I’m wondering if you could advise on a size (BTU) heater I would need for my size greenhouse in my climate?

Tristan Throgmorton | 8/4/2020

Sorry – the answer is not that simple. For one thing I do not know your climate. You will have to tell me. And next: how warm do you want to keep it in side: over wintering outdoor plants requires less heat than, orchids or growing form seeds during the winter.

Secondly, it greatly depends on what you are doing with your greenhouse – for example the more plants the fuller it is the more natural heat is retained and generated. There is a big different between half full and full: can make 10-15º difference. Large raised beds are a great heat generator.

Another option is: to use 1 or 2 large open troughs – 70 gal. + (full with water) (from say Tractor Supply) – these to can add 10-15º at night. And at the same time they offer additional humidity during the cold winter months.

One of our major customers offers the following calculator: http://igctest.commercev3.com/greenhouse_btu_calculator

Generally you will need to experiment.

Is it possible to order the Victorian greenhouse with two doors?

Bob Smith | 3/6/2019

Yes, it is possible to add additional doors to a Royal Victorian. With the Royal Victorian, the doors can be placed in any of the window bays – except the corners. With this in mind, you can place an additional door in a different location than the original door – or you can also place it next to the first door to give you a full double door opening (without a middle support bar). Additionally, we also have turning/hinged doors available as an upgrade as well. The hinged doors are a very high quality addition and come with a lock. They can be placed as single door or double doors.

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance at customerservice@exaco.com or 877-760-8500 ext. 701

Thanks, Customer Support


Is the VI 36 available in Polycarbonate? Or will it be soon?

Larry | 11/12/2016

UPDATE: vi34 and vi36 now available with 10mm triple layer "X-Strong" Polycarbonate windows instead of glass. No more need to special order this option.

Hello, Thank you for visiting our website. We do not stock the Victorian greenhouses with polycarbonate on a regular basis. Currently they are still on a special order basis. They are more expensive than the glass version. If you need to place a special order please contact us at customerservice@exaco.com or 877-760-8500 ext. 701 Thanks, Customer Support


I do not see a place for an exhaust fan, nor see it as optional equipment, is one not needed for the Royal Victorian VI34?

Shirly | 10/18/2016

Hello, Thank you for visiting our website. If you contact our customer service department they will be more than happy to assist you. customerservice@exaco.com 877-760-8500 FREE ext. 701 Thanks, Customer Support


Approximately how long does it take to assemble the vi23?

Bren | 9/7/2016

One and a half days.


Can an extra door be ordered with the kit? What if I need parts in years to come, do I have to wait for Belgium to ship them? Also, I guess you can't substitute a poly twin wall roof for this?

ESEE | 8/18/2016

Hello, Yes we have extra doors in stock for the VI34. We carry parts and will continue to carry them for years to come. We sell a full polycarbonate version of the Vi34, but of you are interested in just the Poly roof give us a call and maybe we can work something out.

Thanks, customerservice@exaco.com 877-760-8500 FREE ext. 701


Can more than one greenhouse be connected together?

StacyDB | 7/29/2016

Hello, There is no provision to connect the Victorian Greenhouses together. You could however build them end to end and seal the gap between the two frames with some foam.

Thanks, customerservice@exaco.com 877-760-8500 FREE ext. 701


Do you sell tray benches as well. I am interested in the 10x 15 Royal Victorian Glass Green house and was wondering if you made 4 ft. by 15 ft benches for it as an accessory.

Mike | 7/13/2016

Hello, We do not have a 4x15 seed tray for the Royal Vi34. The seed tray that we carry is 20" x 15'.

Thanks, customerservice@exaco.com 877-760-8500 FREE ext. 701
