Small greenhouses add instant charm to any outdoor space. The classic glass walls and roofs create an enclosed space to keep plants safe and warm throughout the season. You can order a kit and build these structures yourself, which lowers the overall price and makes delivery a whole lot easier. Greenhouse kits can be found at many superstores or hardware stores in different styles, sizes, and finishes. Take a look at some of our favorite kits for small greenhouses.
Tired of seeing greenhouses all with the same silhouette? Try this hexagonal option with the more circular look of a gazebo. Double doors lead into an open area with plenty of wall space to fill with plants. The frame is made of rust-resistant aluminum, and the base is made of sturdy galvanized steel. The window panels are made from clear polycarbonate. Louvre windows have slats that open and close for better control over temperature, air-flow, and humidity. There is also a gutter system build into the design. Buy It: Palram Oasis, $1,299.99, Hayneedle
Keep your precious plants safe from sunburn. If your greenhouse is placed in an open area with no trees or buildings around, a shade cloth is crucial for controlling light exposure—it’ll allow for 70% of light to reach your plants. Begin by trimming the shade cloth to size; it should fit the south-facing wall of the greenhouse. Force the provided clips through the top of the fabric and attach to the frame of the roof of the greenhouse. Use a wrench to secure the clips. Trim the bottom of the fabric to fit the height of the side of the greenhouse.
Auto vent kits are necessary for proper greenhouse ventilation. The tube that holds the vent up retracts according to the weather to keep the temperature and humidity inside the greenhouse stable. Before assembling your greenhouse auto vent kit, chill the piston rod for 30 minutes. Place the cool steel piston rod against a hard surface. Push it into the power tube. Lift the vent opener of the greenhouse with one hand and slip the threaded steel rod into the plastic-knurled adjusted, which is fixed in the swiveling block.
