Whether you’re considering building a greenhouse by hand or purchasing a pre-made one, it can help to take your gardening to the next level. Give your plants more freedom to grow strong and healthy by providing the best possible environment.
Greenhouses have multiple advantages for both plants and gardeners, with some being:
Protection from the Elements
Gardens are exposed to ever-changing weather conditions and pests that can seriously affect plants’ health. Investing in a greenhouse helps to create a safe place for your plants, regardless of growing season and plant hardiness. The consistent environment that greenhouses provide protects plants from harsh weather changes.
Your plants are safe from the elements and you don’t have to worry about emergency weather preparations. This also helps to limit the dangers of predatory insects and other animals attacking or destroying plants.
Extended Growing Season
You can plant a wide variety of plants for weeks or months longer than in the garden. This extended growing season is possible due to greenhouses offering more controlled environments. This eliminates the dangers of fluctuating temperatures, both at the beginning and at the end of planting seasons, which means plants aren’t placed at risk.
Protection from Pests
Insects can be beneficial to plants by helping to pollinate and protect them from pests. In greenhouses, the dangers of pests and other animals affecting your plants are reduced. Greenhouses protect your plants from pests such as spider mites. You can also promote beneficial and pollinating insects in a controlled environment.
Creating the Best Growing Environment
Humid and warm environments are optimal environments for plants to thrive in, and greenhouses provide this ideal growing environment. Greenhouse heaters help to heat up your greenhouse while having extremely low running costs of just £0.005 per hour/per foot. These allow you to maintain constant temperatures in your greenhouse by providing a steady background heat.
Optimising Growing Space
Gardens are great spaces to grow delicious vegetables and beautiful flowers but, more often than not, they don’t have enough room for all the plants you want to grow. If you want to grow a substantial amount of plants, investing in a greenhouse is ideal to maximise the space for plants to grow in.
Greenhouses are also perfect focal points to exhibit your beautiful plants. They remove the need for worrying over garden landscaping and outdoor design.
