Greenhouses are a great way to extend your vegetable growing season in a cold climate. Building your own can help you save a lot of money as well as allowing you to customize the size to suit your needs.
This greenhouse is built for starting seedlings, technically known as a propagation house. But what is great about it is that it’s made from PVC and wood, which are materials that are cheap and easy to find.
Even though it’s made from simple and inexpensive materials, it can grow a wide range of produce, even during the season not ideal for growing crops.
Want to grow your produce and extend your growing season? Why not build a DIY hoop-house!
