Greenhouse Plans

A greenhouse is a house made of glass or plastic where plants are grown; it is also called a hothouse or a glasshouse, which allows as much light as possible and protects the plants from winter and cold winds. One can use the greenhouse for the entire planting process i.e., from sowing the seeds to harvesting the produce.
