What to consider when buying a mini greenhouse?
Ideally you want the prefect size for your space. The beauty about mini greenhouses is that they fit in almost any space , shape and area! They are also a great way to get your feet wet into the world of gardening and can be a great way to grow small amounts of produce you can use in meals such as a lettuce, cucumbers or tomatoes.
Most of the mini greenhouses are made of either wood or plastic. Both materials work just fine, the wooden ones are certainly more eco friendly however, with both materials being long lasting, i dont see you throwing any of them anyway in the near future as they are well made products that should last years ahead!
Purpose of use
You may be looking to grow tall plants or small, either way you should consider if you need less shelves but more height for the taller plants or vice versa if you will be growing smaller in height produce. Smaller in height then ideally you would like to have more shelves so you can maximize the growing space and harvest.
