Well, you can either build your own to fit your garden using a company such as Roman Glass, glass suppliers Bristol to get all the materials that you need, or you could buy a ready made one. A greenhouse, done well can also be an aesthetically pleasing addition to your garden, or you can even make a feature of it, by decorating with fairy lights and bunting.

When it comes to what you plant in there, vegetables are a good choice, as many do well in a greenhouse, and how nice is it to have your own home grown veg to eat throughout the year? Lettuces, mushrooms, tomatoes and peas are all good vegetables for beginners to greenhouse gardening.

Greenhouses are also a good place to start off plants that you wish to grow in the garden from seeds. As well as protecting them from the elements and birds and squirrels on the lookout for tasty seeds, the greenhouse provides a sheltered and warm environment to give them the best start in life. Poppies, Sunflowers and even small trees are good to start off in the greenhouse.

Most gardeners find that with a little bit of helpful information, and a little bit of trial and error they easily work out what works and what doesn’t – and it is a relaxing pastime to enjoy in the process.
