A greenhouse provides a structure that allows you to:
– Start the seeds you choose
– Extend your growing season
– Protect plants in the winter
– Propagate plants
– Grow plants outside your USDA zone
– Have a peacful retreat
Greenhouse can vary in complexity from simple hoop houses to to larger structures with vents and heaters. They have different types of covering materials, such as plastic or glass. Walls of larger structures are frequently plastic or glass. They warm up because incoming visible solar radiation from the sun is absorbed by plants, soil, and other things inside. Air warmed by the heat from hot interior surfaces is retained in by the covering.
