A greenhouse is the easiest way to add functionality to your garden, extend your growing season and to raise better plants, flowers, and vegetables.
Unfortunately, building a green house from raw materials is the kind of heavy duty job best suited to a highly skilled builder and not a weekend gardener.
Fortunately, you can now buy a greenhouse in a kit, instead, and these are much easier to put together.
So, we’ve put together this guide to the top green house kits to help you choose the right growing space for you and your family!
Best Greenhouse Kits
Rion Hobby Gardener 2 Greenhouse
This is a large greenhouse for those looking to transform their gardening hobby into something more professional.
It’s superbly well built, though of course that comes at a price, and you’ll find the powder coated steel frame is very strong and safe.
What we liked most about it was the really even light diffusion and the heat insulation. Plus, we love the adjustable roof vents.
Flower House Walk-In Greenhouse
At the other end of the scale is this cute and highly portable mini greenhouse which is freestanding but very lightweight and can easily be dragged around to get the best light.
If you want to make some pot plants then this is the way to do it.
Erommy Walk-In Greenhouse
Not only was this one of the easiest greenhouses to put together in our tests but it comes with a high quality built in irrigation system that captures rainwater and stores it for use on your plants! It has everything you need.
It’s also very strong and if you’re worried about thieves, it will give you peace of mind.
Grandio Element Walk-In Greenhouse
If you want the classic greenhouse design, then this is your greenhouse. It’s elegant rust resistant aluminum frame is easy to fit in even a small garden.
It’s very easy to build and we think it would look best just filled with flowers but it’s your call! Vegetables will do fine in here too.
HIGH Arch Greenhouse From ShelterLogic
You need a lot of space for this one but in return, you can get an awful lot out of this greenhouse kit too.
If you want to do some market gardening then you can easily plant a season’s worth of crops inside and harvest them all at once for maximum profitability!
Outsunny Polycarbonate Garden Greenhouse
Another more classic design that we really liked for small gardens and yards.
It’s cute but the reasonable price tag belies a solid build quality with rust resistant polycarbonate panels.
We’d expect this greenhouse to last a good few years due to the polycarbonate panels. That makes it one of the better bargains of our round up.
Abba Patio Mini Walk-In Greenhouse
If you want a bigger greenhouse but don’t have a lot of cash to invest in your greenhouse just yet, then check out the Abba Patio
The polyethylene rather than glass covers keep the price down but there’s a lot of room inside.
Greenhouse In A Box
Yes, this is as easy to assemble as the name suggests.
It comes in a number of different sizes and if you’re worried your DIY skills aren’t up to the task of putting something together, this is going to be the best choice for you.
Tierra Garden Sunbubble Greenhouse
We love dome shapes and think they give a really nice look to your garden and the curve here keeps the surface perpendicular to the sun all day long and that means your plants get the most light from this kind of design.
Palram Hybrid Hobby Greenhouse
This is probably our favorite greenhouse of them all.
It’s super lightweight and we put it together in no time as a team of two (and you definitely need two people to build a greenhouse).
It’s nicely ventilated and we love the louvered roof and the anchoring pegs (which keep it together in high winds) are included in the box. It’s nicely rust resistant.
