DIY Greenhouses on Hometalk.

I have loved gardening since I can’t remember when.
A greenhouse is a great help to all us gardeners and a DIY greenhouse is very doable.
You don’t need to invest  a lot of $$$ to enjoy the benefits.
With the help of Hometalk sharers I created a clipboard of DIY greenhouses.
hometalk curated board of greenhousesI found 18 different greenhouses built from reclaimed or inexpensive materials.
There is a range of sizes and designs.
I have a pricier kit greenhouse and I do love it but the spot it is sitting gets no sun in the winter, at all.
But I still utilize it as best I can.

It is always a thrill for me to see new growth and life from a tiny seed or a slip from another plant.
free plants from cuttingsThis summer I wanted to be able to extend my garden season into much later in the year and even try to grow greens and cool weather crops into the winter.
So I came up with this idea.
DIY Easy greenhouseWith this one I can cover it with the clear plastic come cooler temps but in the summer when I want my garden plants to get the full rays of the sun I can just remove the cover.
I can build up raised beds if I feel the need or not.
And I hope that next Spring I can get a jump start on all my veggies!
I will be sure to report back on any progress or failures of this experimental hoop/greenhouse.

  1. I have a bunch of old wood framed windows in storage in another state, when we moved we did not anticipate it taking so long to get everything back here. I am itching to try a greenhouse from windows. I agree, a greenhouse is money well spent!

  2. I gave my collection of old wood framed windows to the Scrap Man and we assembled an inexpensive DIY aluminum framed greenhouse.

    Now I have another collection, this time of aluminum framed storm windows that will not need scraping and painting and reglazing. I need a second greenhouse.

    It’s all fun. I wish that those who long for a greenhouse would take their vacation money and go ahead with a year-round place to play.

  4. And my hoop house one is getting even prettier, the climbing beans are to the top already and just starting to put on little beans. Woo hoo!

  5. I am hoping that my hoop house one will help me garden further into the year, especially for my cool weather crops. It sits in a good spot for maximum sun so we shall see. Thank you!

  6. I have had a bit of trouble with deer the past couple of years but so far this year they have not been coming around. I have those motion sensor sprinklers that keep them at bay and they have worked for me, they are called Scarecrows. I have not had to use them yet so far this summer but come Fall I am sure I will.

  7. Pam, this is a great collection of inexpensive greenhouse ideas. We keep thinking that we’ll build a greenhouse but we’ve never gotten around to doing it. I think we would utilize it a great deal! Pinning and stumbling! 🙂

  8. This is beautiful but with the deer and rabbits galore, they eat everything I plant.
