How to Choose a Home Hobby Greenhouse


Gardening is a rewarding and relaxing hobby, that lasts a lifetime. As we become more experienced and dedicated (aka Fanatical!) in our gardening endeavors, we look for ways to extend the hobby. A backyard home hobby greenhouse provides that extension, both spring, and fall. It opens up a new world of gardening possibilities.

If you live in milder, more southerly areas of the country, you can grow flowers, vegetables, and herbs all winter long, inside of your greenhouse. How cool is that!?

How to Choose a Home Hobby Greenhouse

We firmly believe there is a home hobby greenhouse for every gardener. To help narrow down the selection, ask yourself these key questions:

  1. What is my budget? How much can I afford to spend?

  2. What size do I need for my gardening needs?

  3. What size will fit the area I can provide for it?

  4. Do I want the less expensive, polyethylene (soft plastic) walls? Or, do I want a more permanent and durable polycarbonate (hard plastic)?

  5. Do I want or need portability….to take it down in the off-season?

  6. Do I want a walk-in model?

  7. For smaller, non-walk-in models, do I want a raised bed frame?

  8. What features do I want and need? Auto-vent windows, shelving, rain gutters, etc.

Did you know? The word “greenhouse ” in Spanish is Invernaderos. Do you know the word in another language? Send us a note and we will add it!
