Why Choose a Small Greenhouse?
The Perfect Growing Environment
Maximising Your Space
- Benching - provides space, at the perfect height, to pot and keep plants. Greenhouse benches also provide great storage space. In order to make the most of your space in a smaller structure the layout of benches can make an important difference. By placing benches on one side of the greenhouse this leaves the other side free for larger potted plants such as citrus. Alternatively, you can create an L-shaped bench to fit into the corners of the greenhouse to fill one end, leaving the other end for larger plants or even for a little seating area.
- Strawberry Boards - fantastic for efficiently using empty space on the walls of your greenhouse. These can be used for plants or as another place to store tools, seeds or pots.
- Potting Shoe – perfect for transferring plants or potting up whilst keeping the soil neatly in one place. You can easily lift and move it around your greenhouse so that it can be stored efficiently when not in use.
Customising Your Greenhouse
A small greenhouse can also present an opportunity to add a pop of colour to your garden. Using one of the bolder colours from our National Trust Colour palette, such as Chalkhill Blue or Downland Stone you can ensure your greenhouse is the feature of your garden. You could also opt for an even brighter choice through our colour match system, simply supply us with the RAL code and we will do the rest. The small nature of the structure will prevent it from overpowering your garden, instead, it will become a fun and bright addition to enjoy all year round.
