Whilst Messenger & Co., Ltd., are best known for their horticultural structures and associated heating apparatus, it is not widely known that they also produced a large range of ancillary products, only some of which were directly related to the horticultural business. One of their great strengths was that they were essentially wood workers and iron founders. This gave them potential opportunities to diversify whilst maintaining their core competency. Over the years their catalogues and advertisements contained a large number of products not immediately connected to the horticultural trade.
