What Plants are Best to Grow in a Portable Greenhouse

portable greenhouseWhen it comes to growing plants in a greenhouse, some plants will grow better than others. But what sorts of plants should you plant in your portable greenhouse?

Greenhouses allow a gardener to control the climate regardless of what’s happening outside. With a portable greenhouse, you can move plants that enjoy the warmth inside for the winter. But most plants that truly thrive in a greenhouse are ones that do best in containers—at least temporarily.

With portable greenhouses, you’re working with a slightly cooler climate than you would for a stationary greenhouse. However, there are plants that especially enjoy this type of climate. This includes cool season crops like lettuce, broccoli, peas, and carrots. They can tolerate chilly nights, which means that heating isn’t necessary when growing them unless you live in an area where temperatures reach extreme lows. In addition, these crops grow well in partial shade, which means you don’t have to worry about overhead lighting.

Cool weather plants are often best planted in late summer or early fall, depending on the plant. They’re then harvested in late fall before the truly cold weather hits. In addition to the already-named plants, consider growing kale, cauliflower, onions, potatoes, radishes, and beets. All of these plants do best in cooler weather, and can be harvested right before winter.

Also keep in mind that your portable greenhouse will only extend your growing season rather than keep it year-round if you live in a cold-weather area. If you’re growing plants, make sure to monitor weather reports to determine when the growing season has finally ended.

When you begin planting, remember what plants will do best in your portable greenhouse. And enjoy fresh, green vegetables with an extended growing season.
