There are many good designs but the best tend to be the simple traditional pent-roofed and apex types and geodesic domes. A pent roof is suitable for lean-to greenhouses. An apex roof (like the roof of a standard house) is good for stand alone greenhouses.

The Best Buy Greenhouse for Green Gardening

How to choose a good, long lasting greenhouse

Not all greenhouses are the same!

the best buy greenhouse is a strong one that lastsThe very best buy greenhouse for green gardening has to be a sustainable one, one which lasts a long time and causes no environmental problems.

There's no doubt that a good greenhouse can help you to garden more effectively. It can also be a great help if you want to grow some of your own food. Here in the UK greenhouses are especially great for ensuring that you get some kind of worthwhile tomato crop!

Best buy greenhouse - some general pointers

There are many good designs but the best tend to be the simple traditional pent-roofed and apex types and geodesic domes. A pent roof is suitable for lean-to greenhouses. An apex roof (like the roof of a standard house) is good for stand alone greenhouses.
