Easy to set up Hobby Greenhouses
May 12, 2009
Having a greenhouse at home is an increasingly common way to nurture plants and to protect them from harsh weather. In many climates, it’s a necessary part of the year’s gardening in order to have a lush garden of flowers. In just about any climate, there are a number of reasons why having your own, small greenhouse is a practical way to give your gardening projects a boost.
In some climates, having a garden is made difficult by late frosts and early snows. Starting a few seedlings indoors can make it easier to get a spring garden started when it gets warm enough outdoors, but it can prove difficult to start a whole garden that way. A greenhouse can supply seedlings with all the sunlight they need while protecting them from the cold weather. With some simple shelving or bakers racks, even a very small greenhouse can be used to start hundreds of seedlings to fill a flower garden. They can then be transplanted outdoors when the conditions are right.
Some gardeners love to grow flowers or herbs that will be available all year. By using a greenhouse, they can keep their flowers safe from the winter weather in order to provide cut flowers for the table even after the first frost has killed off many of the outdoor flowers. For herb growers, a home greenhouse can make it possible to grow herbs for most of the year, providing fresh herbs for cooking during months when they would otherwise not have been available.
For some gardeners, a home greenhouse can allow them to grow plants and flowers that they ordinarily wouldn’t be able to grow in their climate. Flowers that need a consistent heat or a high humidity level often flourish under greenhouse conditions. This greatly expands the type of flowers that a gardener can grow, adding interesting specimens to the garden.
We give away $50 worth of seeds and a gavanized potting bench with each greenhouse. If you have ever been interested in having an easy to construct and easy to care for hobby greenhouse you will love these.
Keep Gardening. Jeff
