What to think about before purchasing a greenhouse

By Rose C
23rd December 2019

Ultimately, the purchasing of a greenhouse is not for the grower, but for your plants and crops. Although, we can’t deny that there’s nothing better than a shiny new greenhouse on the plot or in the garden! An improved environment will help to produce an increased yield of higher quality crops. For crops to grow and thrive, four key factors need to be considered; one: correct diffusion of sunlight, two: carefully managing ventilation, three: maintaining correct temperature levels and four: effectively dealing with humidity. All of these elements ensure that your plants have the best environment possible.

Circumstances and environment influence most decisions to purchase a greenhouse, glass house or polytunnel. Nevertheless, there are a number of other factors to be considered to ensure that the most suitable greenhouse is purchased. To help focus on what is most important, prioritise the requirements. Make a list, numbering items from one to 10. Use this list as the basis of research and collate the relevant information.

What is grown and how it is cultivated are key factors in choosing a greenhouse. Most people grow a range of crops and rotate what they grow, and this is where a Keder Greenhouse stands out from all the others. Not only strong, durable and long lasting, it manages the four key elements so that the crops grow efficiently and with ease.

For the grower, it is all about flexibility and managing crops. Of course, the quality, and the durability, of the greenhouse and its component parts will be of significant benefit when it comes to its longevity. Managing crop rotating and growth cycles will also help to maximise yield and quality. Flexibility to adapting to changes within the growing space and move things around to accommodate new and additional crops within the greenhouse is key. The right greenhouse will last many years, with minimal maintenance so make sure to choose the right one!

Now that a decision has been made, the ground needs to be prepared, ready to receive the greenhouse. This is best discussed with the supplier to prevent problems occurring further down the line. After all, the benefits of a good, correctly installed greenhouse are not only durability and low maintenance, but the ability to withstand extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain, strong winds and thick snow. This will help to make it easier for the grower to maintain the greenhouse and provide the best possible environment.

Designed to withstand the harshest of weathers, Keder Greenhouses are located in most parts of the UK, including Shetland and the Hebrides where the weather can be extreme at times. For over 25 years, Keder Greenhouses have been manufactured in the UK from high quality materials, providing growers with an excellent product to create the best growing environment.
