Grow some greens
Pick a few hardy and healthy vegetables that will come in useful when you need a nutritional boost. Try brussels sprouts, cabbage, spinach, tomatoes, early leeks, lettuce, onions and peas.
Home grown herbs are just amazing for all kinds of recipes. And they are really easy to grow and flourish for longer in greenhouses. Try basil and lemon balm on higher shelves as well as mint, bay leaf and marjoram.
Use pots & planters
Pots and planters offer great drainage, and provide a warm microclimate all of their own. They are perfect for a greenhouse grower because once your seedlings are ready there’s no need to re-plant.
Start growing early
What’s great about a greenhouse – even one without heating - is that you can get an early start on growing seedlings. Start off your seedlings in a propagator set just a few weeks earlier than usual and reap the rewards
Put your green fingers to the test this year when you start to grow your own and opt for really hardy plants like cabbages and peas, onions and lettuce, or use a propagator to get started on things like tomatoes.
Hanging plant jars
Go green in more ways than one with this stylish tip. Take your old glass jars (tins are good too) and turn them into simple planters. Bring in some string and you can hang them together for a natural touch to your home.
Building a vertical garden can be as easy as stacking crates and filling them with pretty plants. Or you can show off by building a bespoke unit, simple frame or monogram piece.
Think about garden furniture
You don’t want to clutter the little space you have but choosing the right furniture can add something special to the area. Compact tables and chairs are just the right touch. Find ideas in our Garden Shop!
