Greenhouses Are ‘Cool!

 

Greenhouses Are ‘Cool!’

 

Greenhouses are a true joy for people. For centuries the, ‘gardening equals calm and tranquility’ belief has been absolutely alive and well…and still is.

 

Now every true grower needs a greenhouse, but there are many who are looking into winter greenhouses, especially now considering the hits and slaps ‘Old Man Winter’ has been providing to most of the country this 2013. Hoop Houses are anGreen House absolute favorite when it comes to the world of winter gardening; they are one of many ‘cool’ greenhouses which are becoming popular sellers in this day and age according to manufacturers and distributors.

 

Not only do these ‘cool’ greenhouses reduce crop damage from snow and harsh winds, but they also do the necessary job requirement of giving people a quiet, safe place to escape from the stress of everyday life. One of the best parts? You do not have to worry about paying for heat. With perfect positioning in your backyard, you will not only be protected from any element that can be sent straight at you, but the vegetation and flowers you decide to grow will have the ability to receive the sun’s warmth (when the sun decides to appear).

 

In addition, it’s ‘cool’ weather plants that are a great choice for the avid gardener. In the perfect greenhouse, temperatures will remain consistently below forty-five or fifty degrees at night but still maintain enough heat so that a great variety of plants can ‘sprout up.’ And for those who are non-believers, there is actually a huge list of flora that thrive in cool temperatures

.

Are you a vegetable person? Broccoli, cabbage, carrots, celery, turnips – you name it and these will thrive in the ‘cool’ greenhouse. Flowers your thing? Some of the most beautiful flowers in the world arrive in the winter season. From the pansy  to the azalea; from Christmas cactus to freesia and hyacinth – flowers that will literally have all brides hopping up and down with happiness because you took the time in the ‘cool’ months to grow the one flower that made their bouquets unforgettable.

 

There is so much more to greenhouse gardening than just the peace and absolute satisfaction that gardeners receive from the Green House 2end result. But when gardening is spoken about, many people do not see the ‘cool’ weather being the ‘fun’ time to do anything except sit in front of a fireplace with hot cocoa and while wishing the snow would stop falling. But the hobby or job of gardening doesn’t have to disappear with the eighty degree temperatures. Not to mention, being able to stare at bright, colorful blooming flowers when that snow is outside falling turns winter doldrums into happy days – which is just what every single one of us needs.

 

My own father, who was a caretaker all of his life, thrived on the work. He thrived on digging in dirt and taking care of a property so that it was literally the most beautiful landscape ever created. In fact, I personally believe that it kept him alive and well. But when the snow fell (and being that we were in New England it fell a great deal), he still had his ‘cool’ greenhouse to fall back on so that he could produce stunning flowers and offer a beautiful area we could look out at from our ice-encrusted windows to see the color that winter just doesn’t provide.

For any winter grower, your choice of greenhouse needs to be the right design that will not only help your environment and your budget, but also something that architecturally would look amazing. Then…it needs to be built right. The greenhouse will trap direct sunlight during the winter months. Commercial greenhouses usually decrease heat loss with double or triple walled solid panels – great ideas, but most definitely expensive. But there are ways to make your greenhouse as airtight as possible, by remembering that in the winter, it is only the East and South sides that need to be open to solar energy. Once you have reduced the loss of energy by making things airtight and building the greenhouse in a way to get all the solar advantages you can, you have a true ‘dream come true.’

 

Remember…just because that snow is falling, and just because you turn on the Weather Channel and continue to hear about storms that are ‘historic’ because of their snow fall and freezing cold temperatures – does not mean that you can’t bring the beauty of gardening into your life. Check out the ‘cool’ greenhouse ideas that can be found at all your local stores and on the Web today!

 

As conservationists and environmentalists we are all trying to create a better world. With the ‘cool’ greenhouse, we can not only do that, but we can also make our ‘personal’ world a whole lot sweeter and more beautiful in the process.
