The main principle behind a garden greenhouse is to be able to regulate how much water, sun and wind the plants are exposed to. A gardener can choose to include a small heater within the house to regulate inside temperature or a hanging mister to increase humidity. Even a small one can be built to grow herbs such as rosemary, thyme and dill year-round.

Choosing the size of a garden greenhouse depends on how many plants will be housed within its walls as well as how large the garden itself is. Smaller ones will be easier to regulate and clean, while larger ones afford many design possibilities. Some gardeners enjoy placing reading and eating furniture within greenhouses as alternative meditation or entertaining areas.

For areas of extreme variable weather, it is a good idea to purchasing a portable greenhouse that can be disassembled at the end of the growing year to make way for fall and winter. These are usually made of steel poles and cloth covers that are easy to roll up and store.

Buying a Garden Greenhouse as a Gift

A garden greenhouse can make a great gift for anyone in the household with a green thumb. However, make sure to ask ahead regarding the space required (or limited to) as well as what specific types of plants will be grown. Inquire about ventilation, how much light or wind should be let in, and whether or not to include gardening benches, shelves and tables.
