If you have some spare room in your outdoor space you should absolutely look into getting a greenhouse! Greenhouses are perfect for beginners and keen gardeners and are a great addition to any outdoor area. You can bloom flowers and even grow fruit and veg! There are so many benefits of a greenhouse that are both beneficial to you and the environment. Take a look at these five reasons why you should invest in a Greenhouse:
1. Gardening Isn’t Just For Sunny Days
Just because the weather is nice in the spring and summer seasons, does not mean it’s the optimum time to grow fruit and veg. It doesn’t matter if it is rain, snow or sun; veggies grow all year round! Some vegetables like onions & carrots grow the best in November/December time. If you have a greenhouse, it will help shelter you from the bad weather as you tend to your garden.
2. Protect Your Plants
Plants go through every season differently and in many circumstances, the wind and rain can either not give them a chance to grow or, ruin them completely. Having a greenhouse not only protects you from bad weather conditions but also protects your plants and gives them a good opportunity to grow to their maximum form.
3. Get Fresh Produces Right From Home
There is nothing better than growing something from scratch and picking it when it’s at its fullest and freshest state. Whether you are growing herbs, fruit or vegetables – there’s no need to go down to your local supermarket to get something you need, you can just simply grow it at home!
4. Prevents Pests
Pests in your garden are common and can ruin anything such as flowers, seeds or vegetables and unfortunately, sometimes there isn’t anything we can do about it. However, having a greenhouse can help minimise the risk of your crop being destroyed by unwanted animals. This is because it creates a physical barrier and makes it incredibly difficult for anything to get in from the outside.
5. It’s good for you!
Having a greenhouse has so many other health benefits than just giving you easier and quicker access to fresh produce; it’s also incredibly good for your mental and physical wellbeing. The Royal Horticultural Society reported that gardening is a fun way to exercise and get you moving about which is great for your body and mind!
