If you would like to grow your garden year round, so you can enjoy the fresh, and flavorful, taste of your own fruits and vegetables from a home grown garden throughout the year, a greenhouse would be a great option to look into. What is a Greenhouse?A greenhouse is a structure that is mostly made of clear glass, or plastic, to provide your garden, or plants, protection from the climatic changes that occur through the different seasons throughout the year. The clear glass, or plastic, allow the sun to shine in, but keep the cold and freezing temparatures out. Some greenhouses are heated, provided the added benefit of warmth during the colder months for plants that need a warmer climate. When deciding what to do with your greenhouse, there are a lot of different options in what you grow your plants in for your to consider. You can put a greenhouse over regular soil, and grow a regular garden inside your greenhouse. You can also add raised beds to your greenhouse to grow your garden in raised beds. Another option is to use hydroponics in your greenhouse, which is the latest trend in garden types. Another option is to use pots and bins, where you can add shelving, or desk space, to place your plants where you want them in your greenhouse. You can also add a mixture of each of the above. Some people like to use their greenhouse to grow their seeds into seedlings, to get a jump start on their spring and summer garden. By growing the seeds into seedlings in a greenhouse, you can start this process many weeks before the typical gardening season woud start, so by the time you are ready to transplant them into your garden when the weather and temparature permits, you will have plants that are healthy and well on their way to getting ready to produce fruit and vegetables. Greenhouses come in many different shapes and sizes. There are greenhouses that are like sheds, there are huge greenhouses that you can put together yourself, or have the greenhouse manufacturer put it together for you, if they offer that as a service.
