Greenhouse serves as a shield between nature and what you are growing and thus allows growing seasons to be extended and possibly improved. They provide shelter from cold winter or hot summer days, as well as pests. In these botanical gardens, you can nurture fresh greens, vegetables, and fruits, and especially plants that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to grow, like exotic flowers or tropical fruits. A greenhouse stays warm inside, even during the winter. In the daytime, sunlight shines into the greenhouse and warms the plants and air inside. At nighttime, it’s colder outside, but the inside stays warm.

Do you have a greenhouse? Do you like gardening and nurturing plants in your yard? With these tutorials, you can build one!
