Growing in Winter

The case for a greenhouse

For those of us in regions with shorter growing seasons, the limited time for planting and harvesting can be a challenge.

That’s why I wanted to share with you the benefits of using a greenhouse to extend your growing season. With a greenhouse, you’ll be able to start seeds earlier in the season and continue to grow plants long after the traditional growing season has ended. This means you’ll have access to a wider variety of plants, including those that may not typically be grown in your area, and you’ll be able to harvest fresh produce even in the depths of winter.

Not only will a greenhouse extend your growing season, but it can also improve the overall health of your plants. The controlled environment of a greenhouse allows you to create ideal growing conditions, such as proper temperature, humidity, and light levels, which can result in stronger, more productive plants. Additionally, using a greenhouse can help protect your plants from animals, pests and disease, reducing the need for harmful chemicals and improving the overall sustainability of your garden.

If you’re over 60 and are looking for an engaging, rewarding hobby that can provide both physical and mental benefits, a greenhouse is the perfect solution. Gardening is a great way to stay active and connected to nature, and with a greenhouse, you’ll be able to enjoy these benefits all year long.

I hope this post has inspired you to consider using a greenhouse to extend your growing season.
