Chapter 1: What you Need to Begin

The first question you will ask yourself, is what you need to begin to start this. We obviously need a greenhouse, but what else? Well, you’re about to find out. Having all of this on hand will make your greenhouse gardening easier, and while you might not know what kinds of plants you want just yet, knowing a few of the different things that you need before you begin will definitely help you.

Freestanding or Attached?

First thing you need to consider, is whether or not you’re going to go the freestanding route, or the attached route. Both of these have their pros and cons, and it’s important to weight each of the options when choosing a greenhouse for yourself.

Freestanding means that it doesn’t have an attachment to a house or structure. These are the typical glass greenhouses that you see in pictures and such. These are usually made of glass because they conduct the heat and light way easier than other such materials, but it can be a bit pricy. There are other options too, which we will go over later. This gives you a lot more light, so if you’re in an area where your house gets bad light, it might be best to go the freestanding route. The biggest disadvantage, is more labor and pricier since you got to build that fourth side.

In contrast, the attached means that it is attached to a home or a structure. This is good if you’re not totally sure you want a full greenhouse, or you just don’t want to go all the way to the middle of your backyard during the winter to take care of plants. This is built on three different sides, attached to the house or structure. It has the advantage of less building, can be closer, and might be easier, but the major disadvantage f only three sides, which does limit the light. When you’re building this, do assess where your home gets the most light before you begin building your greenhouse, so that you know whether or not you’re going the freestanding route, or the attached route when it comes to building.

Soil to grow

Next you need the soil. Soil is super important, since it is what you’ll be using to grow these plants. You need to make sure that the soil isn’t unsterilized, because that actually has parasites in it, and it might cause you major issues in the long term because of this. unsterilized soil is a lot cheaper, yes, but it actually can affect the overall growth of your greenhouse if you’re not careful. If you’re going to take soil from your backyard, sterilize it so that it doesn’t have parasites. You can bake it at 250 degrees to help get rid of the parasites in there. You can then mix it with fertilizer and then blend it together, and while it might be fun to do this, sometimes it might be better to just splurge on soil. Soil
