With a portable greenhouse, it is possible to grow plants in cold seasons or climates. A greenhouse makes a great place to store your plants during the wintertime .

Many individuals with a greenhouse are able to enjoy fresh vegetables and flowers during the cold winter months.
It is not just vegetables that make greenhouse gardening a great pastime. It is also perfect for ornamental plants and flowers. A portable greenhouse is just what you need to over-winter plants that will give your outdoor garden a head start the following spring.

Seedlings must be sheltered from the outdoor elements, and a greenhouse is ideal for providing that protection.
It is important that you place your portable greenhouse in a suitable location. One of the keys to successful gardening in a greenhouse is having the right sun exposure. This is critical to the well being of the plants you are planning to grow. Other things to consider are the structures and trees near the greenhouse site. Do they cast shadows on the greenhouse or will growing trees eventually do so?
Ventilation is necessary to minimize overheating that sun exposure may generate in the greenhouse. You ought to place a thermometer in a shaded area within the greenhouse. You need to continually keep an eye on the temperature, particularly when it is warm and sunny outside. You might need to ventilate the greenhouse when necessary to avoid wilting of your plants due to excessive heat.
Greenhouse gardening is a relaxing and productive way to spend your time. It is been demonstrated that gardening can lessen stress levels and make you more fit. You’ll also reap the rewards of a bountiful harvest, whether it’s beautiful plants and flowers or tasty, nutritious vegetables.

Flowers always make a home seem more welcoming. Adorn your entrance with assorted annuals and perrenials to keep color year long. Petunia, Snapdragon, Lily-of-the-Nile, and ‘Gertrude Jekyl’ roses are great additions.
If you have a small space beetween your house and the street, try putting a low fence in front. It gives the illusion that your house is farther from the street than it really is, and it also makes for a great space for planting flowers and vines.
Outdoor areas are often the last to receive design attention, but they shouldn’t be: What surrounds your home is just as important as what’s in it. Whether it’s a manicured front lawn, stone paver pathway or intricate garden design, these spaces benefit from the same attention to detail as any bathroom or kitchen. Well-designed landscaping ideas can complement your home’s architecture and design, and the right plants, flowers and shrubbery can greatly enhance your curb appeal by adding color, texture and even fragrance to your yard.
