Greenhouse Nursery

With today's developments in greenhouse gardening, improvements in the durability of frame and covering materials for the structures, and the availability of greenhouse kits, people can enjoy the benefits of a greenhouse right in their own backyards.

Greenhouses provide a solid investment and a relaxing home environment. A greenhouse nursery can not only increase the value of your home, but can also provides a quiet haven in which to reap the benefits of beautiful plants, flowers, herbs and vegetables year-round. A greenhouse protects your plants from the harsh elements of summer and winter and allows for a greater variety of plants to be grown for a longer period of time.

A well-built and maintained greenhouse should require minimal care and extend your indoor gardening ability throughout the entire year. Many people choose to grow plants and flowers, while others prefer fruits, herbs and vegetables. Whether for profit or your own personal enjoyment, the advantages of owning your own greenhouse will enhance your gardening experience.

If you are considering building a hobby or commercial greenhouse, you should be aware of the different types of greenhouses available. You will also need to keep in mind how much time and money you are willing to invest in the greenhouse, supplies, and continuous maintenance. There are two types of permanent greenhouses available, freestanding and attached.

A freestanding greenhouse is for the serious gardener that wants to build a greenhouse from the ground up. This type of plant nursery is more expensive and time consuming because it requires plumbing, heating and electricity. You may want to hire or at least consult a building contractor familiar with greenhouse construction to help you find the right structural materials for the building.

If you have limited space in your back yard and want to utilize the heating and electricity of your own home, you may want to go with an attached greenhouse. As well as using your home’s electricity, a "lean-to" greenhouse relies on your home’s existing structure for strength and stability. It should also be conveniently located near your water source for ease in watering your plants and routine cleaning of the hothouse itself.

Another option is a pre-fabricated kit. A significant benefit to purchasing your own greenhouse kit is that they are very cost effective. Whether constructed of plastic, wood, aluminum or steel, they are now lower in cost, and easy to assemble. They come in various sizes and shapes, with a wide range of materials available for the frames and coverings.

Portable greenhouses are economical and convenient for homeowners as well. They often come in kits that are easy to assemble and disassemble. The lightweight structure is ideal for starting new seedlings or carrying existing plants through colder winter months. When purchasing a portable greenhouse make sure you choose one that will stand up to local weather conditions, especially if you live in an area with extreme temperatures and lots of wind.

No matter which kind you choose, a hobby greenhouse can be a fun and relaxing way to grow fruit, vegetables, plants, herbs and flowers all year round. It is important to thoroughly research what type will suit your gardening needs before you purchase.
