Do you wish your growing climate was longer?
Are you just gardening for fun or vegetable just for your family?
If the answer is yes to both of these questions, then a hobby greenhouse is the right choice for your needs.
- You really do not need that big of one either if you are limited on space.
- A small hobby greenhouse can produce enough of a harvest for a family of 3 or 4 if set up correctly.
However, this structure can be as large as you want it to be and still used for non-commercial growing.
- The fact that you are not going to sell your harvest for profit puts this building in the hobby category.
- You can either grow flowers or vegetables and some hobbyists grow both.
- The size you need all depends on the amount of plants you want to cultivate.
Choosing A Location for Your Hobby Greenhouse
The location you set up the greenhouse in should have plenty of sunlight that is shade free.
- Measure the area before you go look at the various models available for you to choose from.
- Then you will know how large the outside of the structure can be.
- After this consider if the inside of the size you are thinking about.
- Will it accommodate the number of tables or racks you are planning?
