How to Choose a Greenhouse
When you decide to buy a greenhouse, there are so many possibilities. Greenhouse gardening may be brand new for you and you might want to start with something small and inexpensive. Perhaps you already have a beginner greenhouse and you are ready to invest in something more substantial. Whatever the goal, you should take thoughtful consideration before you decide to purchase a greenhouse. You may be asking yourself, with so many hobby greenhouse kits to choose from, how do I select a greenhouse kit? This article will highlight some important features to consider during your quest for a greenhouse, and help you select the greenhouse kit for your plants and your lifestyle.
1. Look for a greenhouse that provides the right amount of light for your plants
Diffused light reaches your plants from all angles and produces fewer shade spots. That means plants don’t have to strain to reach towards available light. As a result, the plants develop healthy, compact growth in your greenhouse.
Light diffusion of greenhouse coverings differs greatly. Glass and most single-walled greenhouse covering materials provide minimal, if any, diffusion. Polycarbonate greenhouse covering provides more diffusion than glass, but far less than Solexx. Solexx greenhouse panels provide the best diffused light available. Even on a cloudy day, a Solexx greenhouse is bright inside. Unlike other greenhouse covering materials, Solexx greenhouse covering reflects the light throughout the entire greenhouse structure.
Too much light causes excessive heat in the greenhouse. As a consequence, plants waste energy through transpiration, much like sweating. This stresses plants and reduces photosynthetic rates. More plants actually die in a greenhouse from overheating than from the cold.
You wouldn’t send your children or grandchildren outside to play without sunscreen, and you wouldn’t lock them inside a hot car. Treat your plants with the same care and give them the healthiest start you can. Using Solexx greenhouse panels is the best way to protect your plants.
2. Find a greenhouse with features that will extend your growing season
3. Select a greenhouse that can be modified
4. Choose a greenhouse with strength and durability
Look for greenhouses with low-maintenance frames. Ideally, you should have something that is easy to clean, such as the strong composite frame found on Solexx greenhouses. This ensures that you can wipe out any disease or pests that enter your greenhouse.
The greenhouse paneling should be equally durable. It should be scratch-resistant and also offer excellent impact strength. If you live in an area with lots of snow or other harsh weather, it’s important that the greenhouse covering be strong enough to support the extra weight.
5. Ask about the greenhouse's ultra-violet protection
6. Find a greenhouse with room to grow
The size of the greenhouse you need is dependent upon the available growing space as well. With Solexx greenhouses, built-in bench frames allow you to get the maximum use of your space. Hanging rods are another important feature, allowing you room to winter over all of your beautiful hanging baskets.
