Gardening - Greenhouse

Publication Date



For the avid gardener or plant lover, a hobby greenhouse can be like the icing on the cake. A greenhouse allows you to extend the gardening season by growing plants inside when outside weather conditions make plant growing impossible. It will also provide many hours of pleasure and relaxation while growing your favorite plants.

There are other factors you should consider. Does your plant growing interest span the whole year, or do you get excited about growing plants only during the spring gardening season? If you are only interested in growing annual flowers and vegetable plants, you may want to consider a hot bed or a coldframe. They are cheaper to build and maintain, yet a good quality plant can be grown with little difficulty.
