Nursery manager Colin Fell said the second-hand glasshouse, from Debets-Schalke in the Netherlands, replaced one that collapsed under snow two years ago. The supplier was sourced at Four Oaks, he added.
Fell grows 4,000-6,000 geraniums and fuchsias as well as pack bedding in the glasshouse and is opening it to retail for eight weeks this spring. About 80 per cent of plants are grown from seed in its on-site nursery.
Increased facilities from Santander Corporate Banking allowed the latest addition to be installed.
Alford owner Dee Skiba said: "The new greenhouse will ensure that we are in the best possible position as we enter the busy summer trading season."
Santander Corporate Banking relationship director Liz Pickering added: "Alford is a great business with dedicated management who have demonstrated a commitment to growing their business while providing a high standard of service to their customers."
