  1. A Step-by-Step Guide to Growing Crops with a Cold Frame Greenhouse

    A Step-by-Step Guide to Growing a Crop with a Cold Frame Greenhouse

    Whether you’re a hobbyist gardener or a small-scale professional farmer, a greenhouse is a great investment! Not only will using a greenhouse extend your growing season, but it will also significantly increase your crop production.

    While they’re well worth the cost, greenhouses generally aren’t cheap. That’s why it’s so important to understand how to use a greenhouse and have a solid plan before you make the financial commitment.

    If you’re a first-time user, a high-tunnel greenhouse is a great option. They can accommodate both in-ground and pot-based growing and are less expensive to set up and operate. Here’s a closer look at how these cost-effective greenhouses work and some expert greenhouse tips to help you get started.

    Cold Frame vs. Traditional Greenhouses

    While they have some similarities, there are also important key differences between a high-tunnel greenhouse and a traditional one. First, most traditional greenhouses are either permanently or semi-permanently anchored to the ground. Second, their walls are often made of hard materials, like polycarbonate or glass, and they almost always have permanent utility hook-ups for lighting, heating, and ventilation.

    Instead of anchored into a concrete foundation or footers, high-tunnel greenhouses are made of hoops that anchor directly into the ground. This gives you the ability to deconstruct and move them if necessary. The walls are also made of a thinner material, usually fabric.

  2. The Benefits of Growing with a ShelterTech SP Greenhouse

    The Benefits of Growing with a ShelterTech SP Greenhouse

    A high tunnel greenhouse can be an incredible tool for anyone from a novice gardener to a large-scale farming operation. A hoop house can create an ideal atmosphere to grow crops at an affordable price without sacrificing quality. If you are in the market to increase yield with a tool that is both versatile and strong, ShelterTech SP Greenhouses are a great option.

    What is a High Tunnel Greenhouse?

    A high tunnel greenhouse, also known as a hoop building or cold frame greenhouse, is an unheated structure with a steel frame and fabric cover. One of the benefits of utilizing one of these fabric buildings is it does not require a heater or fan to manipulate internal temperature. The hoop house instead uses solar heat to create an environment where crops can thrive.

    A high tunnel greenhouse from ShelterTech is constructed with high-quality materials like a rustproof steel frame and a durable luminate diffusion fabric cover. They are fully customizable, which means you can pay for only what you need whether you are looking to enhance your large or small farm.
