Why buy a Greenhouse for one or a community?

You’re pretty sure you want to buy a greenhouse, but a particular something is holding you back.

If you’re wondering, ‘Do I need a greenhouse?’ and contemplating another year of just making do, we can help you make up your mind.

Here are eight compelling reasons why you should buy one.

                                            Create your microclimate

A greenhouse lets you create your microclimate, controlling the temperature and humidity you expose your plants to. Whether you want to grow vegetables all year long, cultivate exotic plants, or start seedlings off very early in the season, your greenhouse provides the adaptable, growing environment you need. No longer will your growing plans be held up by our crazy climate – with a greenhouse, you can stay ahead of the game, whatever the weather. 

                                              Save money

Growing from seed costs a fraction of the cost of buying pre-existing plants. With your own greenhouse, you won’t have to spend hundreds of pounds to freshen up your garden. And when it comes to trying new strains, the world is yours. Greenhouses give you the freedom to experiment without spending a fortune. And if a friend or neighbor has varieties you’d like to try, your new greenhouse will make it easier to propagate cuttings.



Grow your own all year round

You don’t need a greenhouse to grow your fruits and vegetables, but it certainly helps. Having a greenhouse allows you to grow more crops for a more extended period. You’ll be able to start harvesting fruits and vegetables earlier in the season and extend harvest time with a more extended harvest. And some certain fruits and vegetables need glass protection to thrive. You’ll soon discover that nothing tastes better than the tomatoes in your greenhouse eaten straight from the vine

                                                     Make money

With a greenhouse becomes abundant. You can choose to earn extra money by selling any excess fruits, vegetables, and cut flowers that you grow. Many people sell their produce at the local farmers’ market or set up a stall outside their homes. Before long, you could soon have your own greenhouse business on the go!

                                                                                                                                                                            Protect delicate plants

A greenhouse keeps delicate plants warm and sheltered during the colder months. This is the perfect place to shelter plants like palm trees from frost throughout the winter. And it’s a lot more convenient than bringing them all to your porch in the winter, where you’ll be tripping over them for months to come.

                                                     Grow something exotic

Have you always wanted to grow award-winning orchids? Or how about your pineapple breeding? With a greenhouse, that is quite possible. There are countless tropical and exotic plants that will happily grow in the plant hardiness environments in greenhouse conditions. Of course, some will need greenhouse heaters to keep the temperature steady throughout the winter, but others will be content with shelter and frost protection.

                                                     Stay healthy and happy

If you are the type of person who needs a lot of time outdoors and suffers from severe work fever after too many days indoors, you will love owning a greenhouse. It will provide a sheltered and dry place where you can plant and fertilize at your leisure. Hot and dry, you’ll be encouraged to spend more time in the sun year-round. This is excellent news for your bones (vitamin D), and your mood improves with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
