Do you love to garden but your living arrangements just aren’t suited to it? Why not consider an indoor greenhouse. If your home is an apartment, the benefits of an indoor greenhouse are quite apparent. But even gardeners with yards can find uses for an indoor greenhouse.
Many greenhouse kits are available for your review and your purchase. You can find a size that will meet your exact needs for now, and into your gardening future. There are so many types of greenhouses that you can even find an indoor greenhouse that will match your shed or your home. We have many greenhouse kits to choose from Our Gardens Nursery Store or Amazon Nursery Store.
So, once you have decided to get a hobby greenhouse you may be wondering about how to erect a greenhouse. This article is a very brief description of erecting a greenhouse and what you can expect when you are building your greenhouse kit.
When you are ready to open your greenhouse kit, you most likely will have a few boxes and bags of “pieces”. These pieces will be parts of the frame, the panels, parts that secure your greenhouse together, and most likely parts to assemble for the vents and doors of your greenhouse.
A greenhouse kit will come with detailed instructions so that you will know what each piece looks like, where it goes, and in what order you are going to want to assemble it. Reputable greenhouse dealers offer you a customer service phone number or email address so that you can get answers to any questions fast.

Pieces in the Greenhouse Kits
All of your pieces in the greenhouse kit will fit together just perfectly. The cuts for all of your glazing and parts of the frames will already be made, and the most you may need when assembling a greenhouse will be a few hours and just a few common hand tools.
Greenhouse kits are the most cost-effective and easiest method in building a greenhouse. You could go and find all the needed panels or parts to build a greenhouse through your local home stores but in the end, you will pay more, and your time in finding all the parts and panels could end up being expensive as well. Your best bet in saving time and money is to buy greenhouse kits that you can assemble in just a few hours.
Easy Ways to Set up an Indoor Greenhouse Kit Inside Your Home
A real benefit is the lower expense involved. Even a simple lean-to greenhouse shed is more costly to build than a small indoor unit. It’s quite easy to build an indoor greenhouse just with materials that you can buy at most home improvement stores.
Perhaps you like the idea of indoor greenhouse kits, but don’t want to go to the trouble of building it yourself. Fortunately for you, it’s possible to purchase indoor greenhouse kits. You can get these in various styles and brand names. They’re available at nurseries, department stores, and even online like amazon.
You can buy indoor greenhouse kits in many different varieties, from a small countertop herb garden to a larger unit that might consume a good portion of your basement.
If this isn’t enough to meet your needs, it’s possible to make a basic homemade greenhouse at very little cost. Begin by building a freestanding set of shelves, about 4 shelves in total. You will need to attach it securely to the floor.
Next, there needs to be a way to retain the moisture and heat that you have provided. You can do this by covering the shelves with plastic wrap, or even an old shower curtain, held together with duct tape. You can provide heat by purchasing heating pads and placing them at the bottom of the greenhouse. Make sure you buy a thermometer so you can measure the temperature regularly.
Place a cup of water in your greenhouse to provide the humidity your plants need. The plants will require light, and you can provide this with a simple fluorescent light. Though, you’re better off using a grow light that is specially designed for the greenhouse. A simple light fixture isn’t that expensive.
Next, you need some soil-filled containers to set your plants in. Arrange them on the shelves and add some water. Now sit back and admire your do-it-yourself greenhouse that does the job just as well as a greenhouse kit.
Use these suggestions as a guideline, and throw in some imagination and style. You will most certainly end up with an indoor greenhouse that’s perfect for you, whether you buy or build.
