Although we seem to have hit a bit of a cold spell, February really has been filled with beautiful blue skies and blinding golden sunshine. As a result we undoubtedly dream of those longer, warmer spring days to come when we can replace our wellies with trainers, allowing blades of grass to tickle our ankles. The birds are definitely singing that bit louder on a morning, sharing their enthusiasm and appreciation for those early sunrises. Being outdoors really does provide the perfect haven to escape and clear our busy minds. It is without doubt that being in the fresh air really is the best therapy.
As supermarkets run out of fruit and vegetables, what better time to grow your own and have nutritious crops right on your doorstep at home. So this is where we can help you!
Here are 5 excellent reasons why owning a greenhouse is a perfect idea;
Extend the growing season: One of the main benefits of using a greenhouse is that it allows you to extend the growing season for your plants. Greenhouses are designed to trap heat and light, creating a warm and humid environment that’s perfect for growing plants all year round. This means that you can start seedlings earlier in the spring, and continue growing plants well into the autumn and even the winter.
Protection from pests and diseases: A greenhouse provides an ideal environment for growing plants free of pests and diseases. By controlling the temperature, humidity and ventilation, you can create an environment that is inhospitable to pests, while keeping the plants healthy and disease-free.
Greater control over the growing environment: With a greenhouse, you have greater control over the growing environment for your plants. You can adjust the temperature and humidity to suit the needs of different types of plants, and use techniques such as drip irrigation and automatic shading to provide the ideal conditions for growth.
Increased yield: Because greenhouses provide ideal growing conditions, plants will grow better and faster in them. This means that you’ll be able to harvest a greater yield of fruits and vegetables, and enjoy a more bountiful garden.
Cost-effective: Greenhouses can be a cost-effective way to grow your own food. Not only do you save money on buying produce from the store, but you can also save on the cost of heating and lighting your greenhouse by using energy-efficient systems.
By considering these benefits of greenhouses, it’s clear to see why they’re becoming such a popular choice for gardeners of all levels. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a beginner, a greenhouse can provide a great way to grow a wide variety of plants and crops all year round.
