Greenhouses have evolved throughout the course of history. At it’s most basic level, greenhouses were created with the idea in mind that gardening could be done throughout the year and not always have to be restricted by the weather and climate of a region. Some greenhouses primarily aim to serve a utilitarian purpose – that is, they are not meant to look pretty, but they get the job done right. Others, like the Palace of Versailles greenhouse in France, is a stunning 500 feet long, 42 feet wide, and 700 feet high piece of stunning architecture. Whether you are looking to significantly invest into having the perfect aesthetic piece to compliment an outdoor garden, or would prefer creating a very cost effective mini-greenhouse by repurposing old salad containers, or just need a simple 101 course of the purpose of a greenhouse: look no further.
