UK Salads have given the go-ahead to Certhon and CMW Horticulture for a 13,200 sq metre glasshouse development at their Hoe Lane site in the Lea Valley. The new block will enable UK Salads to add home produced speciality tomatoes to their existing product range alongside peppers, cucumbers and aubergines.

The new glass will have 6m posts with 8m bays and the project will also include a boiler house, irrigation room and packing shed, along with water storage tanks and heating system including boiler and buffer. This latest co-operative project between Certhon and CMW Horticulture will see Certhon taking care of the greenhouse and heating and CMW working alongside them to supply and install the thermal screens, crop gutters and air tube system.

Certhon started work on the foundations in July and the finished project will be ready for planting next season.
