Find the Right Greenhouse Kit for You
If you love getting your hands dirty, coaxing seedling to life, and reaping the rewards of a bountiful harvest, you may be ready to try greenhouse gardening. While starting a new hobby may seem intimidating at times, greenhouse gardening is simpler than most. Many of the tools you already use for outdoor gardening will transplant for use into your new greenhouse.
One of the biggest challenges in beginning a greenhouse gardening hobby is selecting the right greenhouse. You can choose from three basic greenhouse types: greenhouse kits, mini home greenhouses, and portable garden greenhouses.
Greenhouse kits often contain everything you need to get started. You can choose from a greenhouse kit for a ready-to-assemble greenhouse, or a complete gardening kit with tools, seeds, and potting soil included. These complete greenhouse kits are ideal when families, educators, or small children will be gardening.
The ready-to-assemble greenhouse kits come with the construction supplies, hardware, and tools you will need to erect your own greenhouse. You can choose from a large variety of styles, shapes, and sizes to fit your individual gardening needs.
Mini Home Greenhouses
Home greenhouses, or indoor greenhouses, are ideal for people with limited outdoor growing space. These types of greenhouses can be placed in a closet or basement, a windowsill, or even on a outside porch. The type of home greenhouse you select is often most dependent upon the amount of space you have available for your greenhouse.
If indoor space is not a limiting factor in your selection, you can choose your home greenhouse according to the types and numbers of crops you wish to grow. If you only want to grow a few herbs for cooking, a simple countertop greenhouse will do. However, if you want to fill you basement with greenhouse kits and grow light to produce an entire veggie, flower, and fruit selection, then you may want to select a larger home greenhouse or multiple shelving-type home greenhouses.
Portable Garden Greenhouse
The garden greenhouse is one of the easiest ways to begin a greenhouse gardening hobby. These types of greenhouses include pop up greenhouses, portable greenhouses, and even cold frame greenhouses that make outdoor gardening easier. These greenhouses can be placed over plants in your outdoor garden, or can be used to get a head start on or extend the growing season.
Finding the right greenhouse for you is one of the biggest decisions of beginning your greenhouse gardening hobby, but it’s also one the most exciting. Once you decide on a type of greenhouse, you can get serious about getting down to the dirty and fun aspects of indoor gardening.
