Buying a Greenhouse Kit

The effects of hotter, drier summers and snowier, stormier winters are making outdoor growing more challenging in all parts of the country. That, in turn, makes greenhouses more popular.

Even without changing weather patterns, the stable environment in a greenhouse extends the growing season and allows for a wider variety of food and flowers than would otherwise be possible.

A rudimentary greenhouse isn’t that difficult to build from scratch. I built mine from pressure-treated wood and recycled sliding glass door panels. But there are definite advantages to purchasing a ready-made kit:

  • You can choose the size and style that best suits the available land and your growing needs.
  • Everything is included. You just have to assemble it.
  • Depending on its size, you may pack up your greenhouse and take it with you when you move.

Here are some things to consider as you shop for the best greenhouse kit for your situation:

  • Size: They range from cold frames, which are simple boxes you can move around the garden, to 16- by 20-foot walk-in greenhouses suitable for commercial production. It’s smart to buy the largest greenhouse budget and space allow, because once you start growing, there’s a good chance you’ll want more space if you undersize.
  • Light diffusion: Transparent material is best for starting seeds. But if you’re growing plants to maturity, diffuse or semi-diffuse is better. It distributes light more evenly and prevents plants from getting “leggy” as they reach upwards toward a more focused light source.
  • Durability: You need a rigid, well-insulating material like glass or multiple-walled polycarbonate sheets if you have cold winters with a lot of snow. You also need a rigid material if you experience frequent high winds. Metal and wood framing work better than plastic in these conditions.
  • Style: A greenhouse impacts the appearance of your property as well as the neighborhood. The right design, whether a lean-to extending from the back of a brick house or a gothic arch in the back of the yard, can add appeal as well as utility. On the other hand, aesthetics may not be an issue if your greenhouse is small and portable, or you’re adding a large greenhouse to a space already devoted to growing.
  • Manufacturer: It makes a difference who manufactures the greenhouse. Check reviews. Is the manufacturer local or based in another country? How easy can you get technical support? What kind of warranty comes with the kit?
  • Cost: In general, it’s cheaper to build a greenhouse (like I did, using recycled materials) than to buy a kit. But considering that greenhouse kits range from $100 to $10,000, the cost differential may not be significant depending on size and style.
  • Permits: Check your local zoning regulations before you purchase a greenhouse, especially a big one. Some communities regulate them. A lean-to or abutting greenhouse is considered part of the structure of a house so you may need a building permit.

The unit comes with a clear glass covering to provide maximum sunlight and warmth for starting seeds and winter growing. There’s one ventilation panel on the roof.

When growing season ends, it collapses into an 18- x 18- x 2.36-inch bundle that weighs about six pounds.

This greenhouse features a reinforced polyethylene mesh cover with a roll-up door and roll-up windows on either side. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s there when you need it.
