Review: The Gardman 4 Tier Mini Greenhouse

seedlings-286742_640Now this won’t keep your plants going through a hard winter if you live in the Northern States, but it can certainly help on those cold days and when the months get below zero and the nights draw in.

The Gardman Mini 4 tier Greenhouse is great storage for ‘planting out flowers’; plants you have bought; been given or dug up to keep from frost before to putting them back into the ground. The cover comes off completely if you want to store or remove large numbers of plants and the zipper front means you can gain access to water and care for them.

I grow most of my plants from seeds and the first thing that came to mind when I first saw this mini greenhouse was, “ This would be great for getting seeds going!”

51WfyA5idzL._AC_UL160_SR160,160_Normally I use a standard germination tray with a heat mat.  This has worked well for me so far but I’m only starting one tray of seeds at a time. By buying multiple heating pads this gets my production going really quickly and get a great start in early spring. With this we can become a bit more self-sufficient by getting the veg into the ground earlier.

Coming in at around $30-$50 it’s a great little greenhouse without the monetary expenditure or time commitment of building one.  It tough steel frame and polypropylene built to withstand a lot of weight and all the weather can throw at it without cracking. By stacking plants with light from all directions means this mini greenhouse takes up very little space.
