The short answer to this is yes they are great for an add on to your garden or if you want something easy to manage because they are mobile.

Do cheap plastic greenhouses work?

They work for short term use. I would not use one long term. It won’t up to use for a long time. They are meant to be used for short amount of time and will not stand through weather conditions.

Where should a mini greenhouse be placed?

You will want to place your residential greenhouse in the sun. Always make sure you are keeping in mind the spot that will get the most sun Fall- Winter time. Because all spots in your yard will get sun Spring-Summer. Because not all spots get sun in the cold months. Make sure it’s in a spot to get natural sunlight but that is hidden from the wind or other harsh weather conditions.

How cold is too cold for a greenhouse?

So if you are wanting to use your greenhouse all year round you will need to heat it during the cold months. Anything below 55 degrees will be too cold for your Custom built green house. So keep that in mind when you are wanting to use it when it’s Winter.

When should I start planting in my greenhouse?

Because it is a controlled environment you can plant seeds anytime. I would definitely recommend getting educated on the types of seeds you want to use. So you can take care of them the correct way. If you are planning on moving your plants to a garden make sure you have 6-8 weeks of growing time in the greenhouse before last bit of frost at your home.

So keep reading and I will share the best greenhouse for winter, the best backyard greenhouse, and the best small greenhouse.
