What are mini greenhouses?

Short for “miniature greenhouse”, a mini greenhouse is a small and compact structure designed to create a warm and humid environment inside, allowing you to grow plants, flowers and even vegetables all year round. Perfect for smaller gardens, patios, decking, and balconies, they are ideal for those with limited space.

Is a cold frame the same as a mini greenhouse?

Cold frames are generally accepted as a style of mini greenhouse. These have a slatted base, which allows plants to be grown directly in the soil and provides ventilation, while the plastic covering helps to retain heat and moisture.

The name “cold frame” comes from the fact that they are designed primarily to protect plants from cold weather and to harden off seedlings to extend the growing season for cold-tolerant plants.  

Many mini greenhouses also feature shelving, allowing you to store additional plants and accessories. These greenhouses are designed to protect plants from wind, rain, frost, and other outdoor elements, providing an ideal environment to ensure their growth and success. One of the other main differences is that miniature greenhouses will sometimes have heating elements added while cold frames generally rely on the sun for heating.

Easy to assemble and maintain, mini greenhouses and cold frames are both an ideal choice for those looking to start growing their own plants.

What are the reasons to buy miniature greenhouses and cold frames?

These are just some of the benefits of investing in our miniature greenhouses for sale:

  • Accessible - they tend to be more accessible, allowing individuals to tend to their plants without the need for ladders and other tools
  • Cost-efficient - they are more cost-effective than larger greenhouses because they require less energy to heat and are more affordable
  • Easy to maintain - these greenhouses are easy to maintain due to their size and portability
  • Enclosed spaces - they are ideal for enclosed spaces such as apartments, balconies, flats, and patios, which means homeowners with no gardens may still be able to cultivate plants
  • Increased growing season – mini greenhouses and cold frames extend the growing season by allowing you to start planting earlier in the spring and grow more sensitive plants through the fall
  • Increased yields - plants tend to yield better results due to the more controlled environment and increased temperature
  • Protection from pests and disease - they provide an enclosed, protected environment that can help deter pests and disease
  • Versatile – mini greenhouses are very versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes. They can be used for seed starting, growing vegetables and herbs, or even for displaying plants

The above is to some extent common benefits of all greenhouse sizes but are more pronounced with miniature greenhouses and cold frames.
