Buying a greenhouse is a big investment for most people. It is therefore very important to get it right. Once built it is difficult to alter either its size or location. That is why you need to think very carefully about the type of greenhouse you will need both now and in the future.
It is always individual, what need you have, and in the following we will give you some advice and ideas.
What to Look for When Buying a Greenhouse
Greenhouse gardening has become so popular that the same materials a professional nursery would use are now available for the home greenhouse. Aluminum framing is the most popular greenhouse choice because it is maintenance free, lightweight, easy to work with and it withstands high winds and heavy snowfalls.
The best glazing material available is polycarbonate and it has numerous advantages. Available in 4, 6 and 10mm thickness, polycarbonate used in a greenhouse should be a twin wall construction with air channels which creates the same insulating effect as a thermo window, without the high cost and maintenance of glass. The insulation promotes a more even temperature in the greenhouse which provides better growing conditions for the plants. Our polycarbonate also has a UV coating to prevent wear and is virtually unbreakable – even against baseballs, rocks and hail.
Anchoring The Greenhouse
All greenhouses must be attached to a base or foundation. An optional galvanized steel base is available for all our greenhouse models. Another option is to use standard 6" x 6" landscape timbers as a foundation, which you may also want to anchor. Loose gravel, wood chips, brick or the bare ground are all nice flooring options for your greenhouse.
Size and purpose:
What are you going to use your greenhouse for? If you just want to grow a few tomatoes and cucumbers, you will only need a small greenhouse. Even a small lean-too will be enough for a small family. By watering and fertilizing your plants properly you will have good yield.
If you want to grow a wider variety of plants however, or where greenhouse gardening is your hobby, your greenhouse may be too small. A larger greenhouse offers you more growing possibilities. Space is particulary important for reducing the risk of pests and diseases. Lettuce is more crispy when grown in a greenhouse. You can also grow flowers for the garden.
You will quickly realise that the more interested you become in greenhouse gardening, the more you will seek out exciting plants to grow.
The Excitement of Owning a Greenhouse
There are many reasons that people dream of owning a greenhouse; starting flowers and vegetables from seed, over-wintering your favorite plants, protecting your delicate tropical plants, having fresh fruits and vegetables year-round or just for a place to relax and enjoy an environment that you have created.
Your greenhouse can meet all of these needs plus give you the sense of pride and accomplishment that comes from growing plants or adding to the beauty of your garden and landscape.
A greenhouse lets you create an environment you control for optimal lighting and humidity levels which allows you to store bulbs and plants for the winter and makes a great place to propagate new plants.
