Greenhouse Benefits #4: All-season Gardening
One of the common problems that many gardeners experience is not being able to start growing due to the season/time of year/weather being wrong. For instance, wanting to grow cucumbers during the colder months, despite cucumbers being predominantly summer crops.
However, you don’t have to worry about any of this when you own a greenhouse! Not only do you have control over your garden temperature, but you’ll also be able to start your growing season at any time of the year.
Greenhouse Benefits #5: Increase Your Production
Speaking of all-season gardening, owning a greenhouse also means you can increase your plant production, as it allows you to cultivate all sorts of plants throughout the year.
Not only that, but chances are, your crops will be a lot bigger as the warm temperature inside can encourage/accelerate the plants’ growth.
You’re free to create the perfect growing environment for any plants you want, in order to maximise your harvest.
Greenhouse Benefits #6: All-in-one Gardening Place
Another perk of owning a greenhouse is that you can have a designated area for your gardening and growing. This will let you grow anything from flowers to vegetables and other plants. You’ll be able to keep your gardening tools and equipment all in one place!
Greenhouse Benefits #7: Multiple Purposes
Lastly, did you know that having a greenhouse also means you can use it for a variety of purposes? Thanks to the warmer and more humid environment that it provides, you can grow fresh, organic vegetables, flowers, bulbs and houseplants, including exotic plants and much more!
As long as you understand the conditions that your plants or seedlings require to survive; you can grow various plants at the same time or change what you sow every year—adjusting accordingly for your ideal harvest. With a greenhouse, you have the freedom to choose and grow whatever plants you want.
Importance of Proper Ventilation System in a Greenhouse
Generally, greenhouses are designed as enclosed outdoor structures. Meaning, they don’t ventilate entirely on their own.
But this concern can be easily solved by installing a ventilation system. Having proper ventilation ensures that your plants are supplied with the correct temperature, moisture level and airflow.
Here’s why a ventilation system is crucial in every greenhouse.
1. Temperature Control
Keep in mind that plants are a bit sensitive when it comes to temperature. Hot temperatures can cause them to wilt, while cold temperatures can hinder their growth and production. Not to mention that they also can be delicate to extreme swings in temperature.
To solve this problem, ventilation installed in a greenhouse can help in maintaining an even, optimal temperature. It allows hot air to escape while letting the cold air in, or vice versa.
2. Humidity Control
Apart from the heat, high concentrations of humidity can also be accumulated within the greenhouse. When the conditions inside become damp, mould, fungi and mildew are likely to occur.
But with the right ventilation, this otherwise damp environment can be replaced with dry and cooler air, keeping the humidity at the optimum level.
