WHY WOULD YOU WANT A GREENHOUSE?
"There is no point in doing anything unless you enjoy it and find it satisfying".
Nowhere does this apply to more than gardening. The British climate restricts our ability to simply scatter seeds in the garden and sit back and enjoy the results. There is every chance they will be washed away in the rain, or in reverse mode, suffer from a drought! The cost of food is rocketing, and some of your favourite vegetables at the supermarket are flown in from the four corners of the earth. Past generations grew their own under cover out of necessity, and now more and more of us want the satisfaction of growing our own as well. At Garden Oasis we stock a wide range of Palram greenhouses, in sizes from 6' x 4' up to 12' x 12'. Palram feature a slide in glazing system, which means easy erection, and there are models for every need and price bracket - including the latest 'Grow and Store' Palram Greenhouse - which incorporates a shed area of 4' x 6' attached to a 8'x 6' greenhouse - a brilliant idea for smaller gardens where you haven't room for a separate shed, and of course ideal for allotments.
Bedding plants and perennials thrive by starting off in the greenhouse - take your own cuttings, or sow from seed. Overwinter precious tender plants in the greenhouse (use bubble wrap or a greenhouse heater in the very cold or frosty months).
Palram greenhouses use polycarbonate glazing which is up to 200 times stronger than glass - ideal where there are children playing ball games, or for the allotment where sadly there is sometimes vandalism. Twin polycarbonate is the ideal glazing in your greenhouse, as its insulating properties are better than horticultural glass.
You will be able to sow seeds and grow on cuttings, knowing they will have a good start, and be ready earlier to move into the cold frame or outdoors. Your vegetables will be your pride and joy -the varieties you can grow yourself far exceeds the range on display at any supermarket - and there is something about the taste of home grown produce - picking it and eating it the same day, knowing where it originates from - is there any wonder that greenhouse gardening in this Country is increasing in leaps and bounds?
