choosing the right greenhouse

Greenhouses can be simple structures that are big enough for only a few potted plants, or they can be elaborate buildings with custom ventilation and watering systems in them. The one you choose will depend on your budget and the type of Winter gardening you plan to do. If you're on a limited budget, don't worry - greenhouses are fairly easy to add on to, so you can start small and increase your space later whenever you have more money to do so.

Reasons to Get a New Greenhouse

Produce at the market continues to rise in cost, even as the quality suffers. Because of this, many homeowners are building their own greenhouses, which allow them to grow their own fruits and vegetables at home at a fraction of the cost of buying them at the market. In fact, many homeowners estimate that a greenhouse pays for itself after the first harvest if it will be used to grow food. Of course, you can also build a greenhouse to allow you to grow flowers and trees that may not otherwise grow in the climate.

Common Greenhouse Plant Species in the UK

One of the benefits of a greenhouse – especially a heated one – is that homeowners can grow almost any sort of plant, fruit, or vegetable they want. Even in a greenhouse, there are certain types of plants that will fare better during certain times of the year. Here’s what you should know.

  • Early Spring - In the early Spring, you can plant veg that you’ll harvest a little later in the year. These include things like cabbage, sprouts, onions, peas, and other vegetables that are common during the Spring months.
  • Early Summer - In early Summer, you can start planting typical Autumn crops that require plenty of warmth. These include things like sweet corn, aubergines, and other non-hardy species.
  • Autumn and Winter - When Autumn and Winter come along, it’s best to stick to herbs rather than vegetables that require a lot of heat. However, you can sow tomatoes in late Winter for planting in early Spring.

Heated Greenhouse Benefits

Whereas a traditional greenhouse will require careful consideration when it comes to crops, a heated greenhouse can make things a bit more foolproof. The heat is always present, and it’s even possible for you to create a tropical environment with the right care. This means you could grow almost anything, including citrus trees, if your greenhouse is large enough. It’s best to consult with experts before making any decisions; they can help you choose the right size and type of greenhouse to produce the crops you want.

Greenhouse Costs

Typical greenhouse prices tend to be based mostly on how big the structure is. In some areas, building regulations and homeowner association bylaws may dictate the exact type of greenhouse that can be built, in which case you may have to spend more to have one constructed. Simple structures tend to be fairly inexpensive, but the cost goes up when you start adding roof systems that open and close automatically or sprinkler systems that water plants so you never have to worry about it.
