Greenhouse Growing Guide

A greenhouse isn’t just a physical building or structure for your garden, but an extension of your growing capabilities. Offering more than just a place to organise, store, sow and grow a wide variety of flowers and crops, a greenhouse creates the ideal environment for your plants to thrive in, protects them from the weather (both during the Summer and Winter) and extends the growing season so that seeds can be sown earlier, while yielding higher quantities of buds and in quicker time than if growing them outside.

If you’re looking to buy a greenhouse, or already have one, it may be useful to know that there’s something viable to grow every month throughout the year, even during the harsher Winter months.

Our handy greenhouse growing guide gives a run down on the differing flowers, fruit and veg that can be sown and grown inside your greenhouse throughout the various months of the year.

Note: Some species may appear multiple times, in order to offer a constant supply for the months ahead.
