Woodworking Projects - Glass House

So you have a green thumb and a beautiful garden established and want to take it to the next level. A glass house would be an ideal addition to your garden allowing you so much more scope with your plant production. The glass house can be combined with a potting shed so you can produce lots of free plants. Your garden can grow and flourish as you produce lots of plants and keep them coming on out of season. If you design the glass house well it can enhance your garden and become an integral part of it.

Of course these days glass house does not necessary mean glass as in the traditional old style glass house. There are many suitable plastic sheet style coverings available these days so your green house building becomes relatively easy. These building techniques allow you to have a nice size green house so you can grow a large variety of plants as well as propagate those that need to have some shelter to get started. Combined with your potting shed you can produce lots of lovely plants ready to fill your garden in season.

Your green house will be handy for producing those vegetables that struggle out in the elements. Veggies like tomatoes love the glasshouse environment so you can grow all you can eat. Of course while you have the facility you will need to make room for some exotics like orchids that struggle to survive outside a controlled environment. You will soon find that no matter how large you build it is not going to be large enough. You will want to have a potting bench where you can strike cuttings into seedling trays and somewhere to plant seeds for your flowers and veggies. As the seeds strike and grow you will need room to pot some of them on into bigger pots until it is time to plant them out in the garden.

You can see that your glass house will never be big enough and you will always find plenty to do in there. Because in your glasshouse you are changing the climate so you can garden out of season which means you will have gardening to do all year long. If you love getting your fingers in the soil a greenhouse is a must. Check out some glasshouse plans and patterns now and select the style for you. Get building and you will catch the next planting season.
