Backyard greenhouses have been used by people to beat the weather for ages, but only recently have you been able to build your own greenhouses in two easy steps. Now there are easy, collapsible green house nurseries that you set up quickly, and can take down when they are no longer needed. Portable and simple to erect or remove, these backyard greenhouses can also be used on patios and decks.

Many regions have snow almost year-round, and this makes it impossible to grow much of anything. With green house nurseries, you can create your own garden safely inside a reinforced polyethylene cover that is clear to let in the sunlight. These greenhouses come in 5 x 8 feet or 8 x 8 feet, and they can protect 24 flats on four shelves that run the length of the structure.

Backyard Greenhouses Are Convenient

How convenient to have your very own nursery in your backyard so you can grow fresh vegetables, beautiful flowers, and start expensive plants from seedlings so they cost next to nothing. Step out your back door and pick some green onions and carrots for dinner that were started from seeds in your greenhouse. Start those pansies and snapdragons in winter so they are ready to be transplanted as soon as the danger of frost is over.

With these portable, backyard greenhouses, an instructive growing guide gives helpful hints on how to get the most out of your greenhouse. The structures are designed to be sturdy--they have kick guards at the corners and a strong aluminum frame. Good-sized front and rear vents permit air circulation to keep plants growing in a healthy environment.
