Whether you are looking to save money on your grocery bill, ensure your family has essential food during an emergency, start eating a more healthy diet or you are just looking for a fun hobby … building your own small greenhouse is the ideal solution.
In this short guide, l’ll give you powerful tips to increase your vegetable growing success rate – so please keep reading. But first, I’d like to discuss the benefits of having your small greenhouse a little bit more. While there are many great reasons to own a small greenhouse, one of the most popular ones is to save money.
Here is an example of what you can save – a pack of herbs from the grocery store typically costs between $3 and $6 and then you will use that pack for one or maybe two meals. Buying potted herbs, on the other hand, costs $2.50 to $4 and they last for about eight months. Some herbs, like rosemary and thyme, can even last for years. Growing your own herbs can be made cheaper by starting out with seeds, which cost just $1 to $2.
Another popular reason for having your own greenhouse is that you can prevent your vegetables and herbs from being exposed to fertilizers and pest control sprays that are potentially harmful to humans.
Finally, there’s one more big advantage to having your own small greenhouse – your vegetables and herbs last longer! We’ve all run into the problem of reaching into our fridge’s produce drawers and finding limp or bruised vegetables. But you won’t have that problem when you can pick them straight from the source and put them in your dinner that night. Produce found in the grocery store is typically picked half ripe, having an effect on its flavor. You’ll be getting your produce right when it’s ripe for the best taste!
Now that we’ve covered some of the advantages of having your own greenhouse, it’s time to get some tips that will allow you to succeed at growing your own vegetables much faster and much easier than you probably dared hope possible.
