Our favourite slogan is ‘Healthy Goodness At Your Doorstep”. There’s a reason for that – we know that our customers (not to mention our own family!) benefit in myriad ways when they grow their own herbs, fruit and veges in their very own greenhouses. And because there are so many sizes and shapes available, space should never really be an issue.

In this current environment, where screens consume most of our time, and our kids’ attention, it’s even more important to get them involved in other, more traditional pastimes. Without introduction to outdoor activities, like gardening and growing produce, they could be missing out on some of life’s simple pleasures.

It’s one of the reasons that we do what we do, and why we love it so much.

So, without further ado, let’s go through some of the ways that your family can benefit from having a greenhouse at home. 

Having a greenhouse means …spending time together as a family

It’s challenging these days to do things together, as a family unit. There are sports games, work, social functions, the list goes on. Spending half an hour in the outdoors, with some sunshine on your face as you all tend to your greenhouse plants – well, it’s like a little bit of magic. Not to mention improving everyone’s health from being outdoors and feeling rewarding when you take your harvest inside to prep for the family meal. 

Having a greenhouse means … training the kids to love their veggies

When the kids know where their food has come from, and they have had a hand in growing it, you can put money on the fact that they will enjoy it more. Understanding the process – from the initial planting, nurturing and watering, and then harvesting – allows to them have ownership. Rather than hearing things like ‘I don’t like broccoli’, you will start to hear ‘ Can I have more greens?’ Trust us. We did.

Having a greenhouse means … eating seasonally for greater nutrition

By eating what is in season, you are accessing potentially up to three times the nutritional level in your produce. Out-of-season produce requires chemical additives to keep it looking acceptable once its’ use-by date has passed. You can plan each seasons range of produce accordingly, and eat the tastiest, healthiest fruit and veges all year round!

Having a greenhouse means … you control the quality

When you grow it, you know its true quality. Your own produce has no chemicals, tastes fresh and healthy, and you aren’t paying through the nose for it at the local organic store.

Having a greenhouse means …everything tastes better

Even when you do pay dearly for organic produce, it is still most likely picked early. And that means that it hasn’t had the adequate exposure to sunlight or growing time that it needs to give you the optimal taste and level of nutrients. There is nothing better than picking a piece of fruit or a vege from your own garden, and taking a bite – the flavour is always sensational.

So if you are still thinking about whether a greenhouse is worth it for your family, there’s your answer.
