Frigid temperatures have arrived and winter is on its way, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop gardening. A portable or permanent greenhouse is an ideal option for year-round growing or extending the lifespan of plants that can’t handle the cold.
Whether you want to upgrade your current greenhouse or have decided year-round growing is something you would like to do, Garden & Greenhouse’s website has some important questions to ask yourself before buying.
- How extreme are your winters?
- What types of plants do you want to grow?
- What temperature ranges would your plants need?
- Would you need to introduce a heat source?
Now that you’ve answered those questions, you need to consider your budget and what you want from your new greenhouse. There are plenty of options on the market, and finding the right fit for you can seem daunting. Are you looking for easy installation? How important is durability? What size greenhouse do you want?
