Before choosing a garden greenhouse, ask yourself a few important questions: What style will look best in your garden? What weather factors should you take into consideration? Do you want your garden greenhouse to be freestanding or do you want to join it onto another building? What kind of plants do you want to grow there?
A freestanding garden greenhouse has the advantage of getting light from all sides, but your garden might not have room for such a structure. Lean-to greenhouses have the advantage of better support if you live in a place with strong winds which usually come from the same direction, such as a coastal property. If you live in a generally windy area you should also consider selecting a garden greenhouse with sturdy twin-wall panels as opposed to poly-film greenhouse covering – popular on many designs.
The first thing any gardener has to do when planning a garden is to measure the space there is available. This is particularly important when planning a kitchen container garden for when space is limited greater care has to be taken to make sure every bit is used to the best advantage.
Whether the space is large or small two fundamental rules apply: all the elements of garden must be easily reachable, and there must be a clear plan to the area. These may seem too elementary, even unnecessary, but planning involves simple things, such as allowing space to walk out of the back door, making sure you can reach all the containers to water them, allowing access to an outside tap, and checking the position of any windows so that growing plants will not obstruct the light. It is surprising how often such practicalities are forgotten.
If you ever visited Europe, flower-minded or not, you returned with enthusiasm for the window boxes they have seen-the red geraniums in Germany and Austria, the tuberous begonias of Switzerland… So think how beautiful cities might be if private houses, railroad terminals, apartment houses, department stores, and office buildings could all be decorated with window boxes.
Europeans have had rich experience in growing plants in boxes. We see them high above the streets of London, Dublin, Copenhagen, Paris, Rome, Vienna, Heidelberg, and Geneva. Along narrow, winding streets, they are a charming decoration throughout the growing season. In spring, daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, pansies, wall flowers, and English daisies appear in profusion; in summer, geraniums everywhere radiate their dependable brilliance.
