Buying a greenhouse from blumfeldt

If you own a garden and want to grow vegetables, herbs or other things yourself, you should buy a greenhouse. After all, sensitive plants don't like all weather conditions, so they can quickly die in wind, heavy rain, hail or frost. But how do greenhouses work anyway, and what can be planted in them? We have put together the most important tips, information and a planting calendar.

Greenhouse - for protecting your plants

Many plants are very sensitive to the weather. To ensure that they grow and thrive optimally, the right planting setup should be given to the appropriate vegetables, herbs or flowers. Greenhouses are ideal for this. In this way, you can sow your plants when you like, whatever the weather. This extends the gardening season and the harvest at the same time. Plants sensitive to moisture and cold feel good all around and show their gratitude with rich growth. With the right vegetable seeds, the harvest extends into autumn. Greenhouses come in different shapes and sizes. A greenhouse that is small fits into any garden. It also offers enough flexibility so that it can be set up and moved as needed.

How do greenhouses work?

If you want to sow plants in your beds at the beginning of the year so that you can harvest in spring, you should opt for a greenhouse attachment. It is put over the bed so that the plants can grow optimally protected, thanks to PVC covering. The side flap, which can be opened with a zipper, makes it easy to work inside. The frame can be removed when the plants are large enough or the temperature becomes comfortable. The sunlight comes in through the plastic windows, causing the interior to heat up. This ensures ideal conditions. Various greenhouse accessories such as plant baskets and plant sponges also make sense.

What can I plant in a greenhouse?

  • January: large and small radishes
  • Late February: lettuce, kohlrabi and spinach
  • March: cauliflower, brussels sprouts, savoy cabbage, pumpkin, bell pepper, celeriac, leek and parsley
  • April: tomatoes, cucumbers, runner beans, spring onions, hot peppers, rosemary, dill, thyme and melons
  • May: basil, marjoram, sage and oregano
  • June: onions

Regular cleaning with water and detergent is important to prevent mold and germ buildup. This is recommended at least once a year. Dirty coverings no longer allow light into the interior. They slow down or even worsen the growth of the plants.

Greenhouse summary

Nutrient-rich soil and regular watering alone are not enough for successful cultivation. The right climate, shielding against unfavorable weather conditions and protection against vermin are just as important so that the vegetables, fruits etc. can grow in the garden. Greenhouses are the perfect tools. They give you the opportunity to realize your dream of growing your own vegetables and fruits. Tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes and much more are typical vegetables that can thrive this way if properly cared for. Due to the greenhouse effect, it stays damp and warm in the greenhouse even in winter. Therefore almost all plants can thrive. Growing seasons can be extended and thus the harvest times for self-sufficiency can be increased.
