Story Title: Great Greenhouses in Your Garden
Episode: Ten
Broadcast Date: 26th October 2013
Presenter: Chloe Thomson

Want to grow basil and tomatoes in winter? Or do you have seeds to propogate that need some extra love, then a greenhouse could be the answer you're looking for.

A Greenhouse for Every Garden

  • Choosing the right greenhouse takes a little bit of thinking and the first question I would ask is whether you see yourself as a beginner, a hobbyist or a professional grower? The answer will help you determine the size, cost and the complexity of the system you're looking at
  • Chloe's advice, go for one that's bigger than you first thought, because once these babies are jam-packed with plants I guarantee you'll want more growing space
  • If you're a beginner or a hobbyist you might like to start with a Mini Greenhouse, which has lots of seed trays for propagation and shelving for larger pots or trays of herbs. It's free-standing and it doesn't take up much space so you can put it on a deck or against a shed wall, fence or hedge
  • If on the other hand you're more of a professional grower or you see yourself spending a lot of time in the greenhouse - then think bigger
