How To Choose A Portable Greenhouse
Portable greenhouses are a great resource for protecting your plants from the harsh weather elements. Because portable greenhouses have no permanent foundation you can move or transfer them to any location anytime you want. Many portable greenhouses do not require a large investment on your part. In fact, for as little as five hundred dollars, you can already have a nice greenhouse to help give your plants from shelter from frost.
Selecting The Right Portable Greenhouse
There are a number of things that you need to consider when buying a portable greenhouse. One of the most important considerations when buying this type of greenhouse is size. Before you buy anything, you need to see to it that you have ample space at home to accommodate it. To determine how small or how big your greenhouse can be, get a measuring device and measure the space you have available for the greenhouse. When measuring your space, give allowance for pathways and breathing spaces. You need to have a minimum of two feet wide pathway leading to the entrance of your greenhouse.
Aside from size, you need to pay close attention to the quality of the portable greenhouse. A good portable greenhouse should be made of tear-resistant plastic. The plastic covering of the greenhouse should have UV inhibitor to help keep it from breaking down in the sun (all plastic does break down eventually). To know the lifespan of the plastic covering, read the product description and warranty of the greenhouse carefully.
The support of your portable greenhouse must be made of strong but lightweight materials. If you plan to move your greenhouse every now and then, it would be difficult for you to move things around if the frames and support materials of your greenhouse are heavy or wobbly.
Finally when choosing a portable greenhouse, think about what function you want it to have. Do you just need a greenhouse a few weeks out of the year? If that’s the case, you might consider a temporary greenhouse that can be taken down and stored. If you want something more permanent that you can move throughout your yard, make sure to get a quality structure that you will be able to use to protect your plants and grow for many years.
