Of course you can have rather longer growing season with vegetables like onions, sweet peas, summer cabbage, calabrese, lettuce or spinach. Sure, you can have strawberries and cherries even a month early. It’s up to you now to give your patio, balcony or porch a head start with colorful begonias and dahlias, planted in pots. With a pop up greenhouse in place you can enjoy a rather consistent harvest. Simply put, you can gather peppers and tomatoes in chilly wintry days, and can even pick up salad leaves in drab, cold winter mornings! Needless to say that your home greenhouse can help you in saving time, energy and money while offering complete winter protection for your patio favorites and shelter for your Mediterranean plants such as agaves olives and agapanthus.
Setting your home greenhouse, let’s take a closer look
Prior investing on a greenhouse or on greenhouse kits, you need to first decide where you are going to set up your small green heaven. While some prefers screening it off with a fence or a hedge, you can place it in a rather prominent position to make a feature of it!
Of course, with your beautifully arranged plants, with the doors left wide open to let the summer sun in, and with the meandering trail gleaming after a thorough damping down, your small pea green corner will simply look stunning. To be honest, it doesn’t really matter in which direction you place your home greenhouse as long as you ensure that the plants get enough light and adequate summer sun. Remember the thumb rule here, while summer sun is required for ripening the peppers and tomatoes an adequate amount of spring light is also significantly important for the tender young plants. And, if you think that shade is all that you can offer then go with those ornamental plants such as fuchsias and lilies to add a bit of life and color to your home gardening idea.
The next important step is to measure the site for your greenhouse well. All that you require to do is to have a rather clear idea of the specific size and shape of the greenhouse, which might suit your garden. Honestly, with so many styles and materials of greenhouses available on the market, it is perfectly okay to feel overwhelmed when shopping for greenhouse kits and pop up plant houses.
