Each year as the gardening season ends I long for a greenhouse of my very own. One where I could overwinter tropicals, succulents, and do some seed starting so I'd have to get a heating system. This year as I brought in my houseplants I was struggling with where to put them all. Some of the plants seemed to grow twice their size this summer so I had to get creative as to where place them all. Although our great room has a ton of light, the other rooms in our house are mostly north facing - which are fine for plants that like low light but not so good for some others. I think I've finally convinced Andy that getting a greenhouse is great idea so he's been doing some research for me. Of course I've been researching too but tend to look more at the beauty of them then at their function.
Here's one that looks quite practical. I'd love to have all that extra room!
I love the ones with the white metal frames. They have such a great cottage look to them.
Ohhhh.... look at the finials on that roof!
A grey one with lattice and wood siding.
Imagine being able to have this many succulents flourishing all winter long.
How fun to be able to decorate it for the holidays.
The green houses come in all different shapes and sizes. This one looks nice and compact.
A place to grow orchids and water plants. Ok... I've died and gone to heaven!
During the dark, dreary, cold days of winter how cheery would this sight be?
I love this door!
The wood on this one is gorgeous! And look at how well it is situated in the garden.
Here's a lean-to greenhouse. This would be so convenient in the winter time.... I wouldn't even have to go outside to enjoy the plants.
On the high end here's a conservatory sunroom. If I win the lottery this is what I want!
Here's a really affordable greenhouse from Costcos. It just proves that you don't have to spend a ton of money.
You've probably seen this one before.... this is my all time favorite! I go to Tyra's blog and just sigh.... Her greenhouse and garden is amazing!
Do you have a greenhouse? If you do what kind do you have? How much did you spend and how do you use it? Is it heated? I'd love to hear from you.
