It is becoming more popular, than ever before, to have a greenhouse. A simple greenhouse can be used to grow greens in the winter, start warm season seedlings, propagate landscape plants, or provide shelter to frost tender plants during winter. Conversely, a more advanced greenhouse can be used to grow year-round vegetables or tender specimen plants. With so many options that are available, for today's greenhouses, there is surely something available for every type of gardening aficionado.
Whether you would like to start seedlings in your greenhouse, grow exotic plants or create your own vegetable garden, a greenhouse is the best way to get outstanding results and to extend your growing season. For many people, taking time to garden in their greenhouse is their favorite way to escape from the chaos of the day. Imagine relaxing while surrounded by colorful, vibrant flowers and pleasant aromas. If relaxation is your goal, be sure to choose a greenhouse that offers good insulation so that it can be used year-round. Try growing plants such as lavender, sweet pea and pansies during colder months to give your greenhouse a cheerful and peaceful feeling. With a little bit of know-how, you can enjoy almost any plant year-round with the right greenhouse.

Before you start deciding on a greenhouse, it is important to consider several things. First of all, you need to have an idea of how you want to use the greenhouse. If you want to simply start some seedlings in the spring, a more simple greenhouse structure will do.

You also need to consider the size of greenhouse that you would like to purchase. Many gardeners underestimate the amount of space they will use in the greenhouse. Keep in mind that greenhouse gardening tends to be addictive and many people end up filling their greenhouse within the first season of use! Consider greenhouses that offer extension kits, which are a convenient way to add additional space. The size you choose also depends on how well the inside space of the greenhouse is utilized. While some greenhouses offer little or no shelving, others come with double-tiered shelves and hanging rods. We would be glad to see you, so stop by, ask us questions, and see what we can do for you.
The greenhouse you choose may also depend on the space you have available in your yard. You need to be sure that there is plenty of room for the greenhouse as well as for a working space. It is also important that the greenhouse location will receive plenty of light. Southern exposure is best for your greenhouse plants. As a general rule, you should never prepare a foundation prior to constructing your greenhouse.
Perhaps the most important component to greenhouse success is research! Greenhouse gardening typically has different demands than outdoor gardening. Invest in a good greenhouse book that not only provides unique ideas that you may not have thought of, but that also helps you to take care of the small problems as they arise.
