This is why there are so many greenhouses in the UK. Although there are plastic, fibreglass and other forms of greenhouse, the best material to make them out of is glass. Greenhouse glass conducts heat and allows the ultraviolet rays through to the greenhouse. It then heats up the greenhouse to almost tropical temperatures and retains the heat and light better than plastic or other materials. This means that you can effectively have a similar climate in your back garden as that of the Mediterranean or even the tropics. Plants and flowers grow more rapidly, their leaves and petals are brighter and full of life, and the fruit that grows will be larger and juicer thanks to the environment you've grown them in...
Finding good quality greenhouse glass is not as tricky as it may seem, you just need to know where to look and more importantly what you're looking for.
