Questions and Answers on How to Buy and Shop an Outdoor Greenhouse Structure and Accessories for Greenhouses


 

The purchase of a greenhouse has its upsides and downsides. 

  • On one hand, a greenhouse provides for the opportunity to engage in a year-round cultivation of plants like fruits and vegetables, which may not be possible especially during the winter season. 
  • On the other hand, a greenhouse represents a considerable investment in money, space, time and effort, which many individuals may be unable to give in the long run.


In short, it is of imperative importance that certain questions must be answered to ensure that the investment will be recouped many times over.  The following questions are generally considered to be the most important.
