Best Hobby Greenhouse Styles


Alexandru Chiuariu

When you are ready to start planting, there is an abundance of different greenhouse styles to choose from. Even if you have a small space to set up a greenhouse, a patio, porch or just a balcony, there are a number of different small, portable greenhouses to choose from. These usually have some kind of rack shelf system, with the frame extending above the top shelf to give ample space for the covers. These covers can be made from a clear vinyl or plastic, with zippered fronts to give easy access to your potted plants. They also have caster wheels, making it easy to move them around, or even inside when the weather turns bad. When you are done for the season, they can easily be folded up and stored away for the next year, or can be used inside for Winter Gardening.

There area also a number of larger greenhouse styles to choose from. If you have a small back yard, or don’t want to go through the hassles of trying to make one on your own, there are a number of complete hobby greenhouses, or even kits if you want to save a little money. There are basic styles that are more of a cold greenhouse, which is really just a frame with some sturdy clear covering, and these can help extend your growing season. Some of these can also be disassembled and stored for the winter, or even kept up if you live in a warmer climate.
