What Houzz contributors are saying:

This version combines one large concrete base with several sliding windows.

Protect plants during freezes. Freezes will vary depending upon what part of the state you live in, but we all know to expect some freezing or even snowy weather from time to time. Protect your more tender plants with frost blankets from your local nursery or home improvement store, or construct a cold frame to more thoroughly cover the plants. Consider purchasing a small movable greenhouse for any tropical patio containers — I've found greenhouses at a local nursery for $250 to $500.

This is a good greenhouse idea, could grow my herbs in these. I'd just want the windows to be further up so my plants can fully grow.

This is a cool idea, but I would have the glass arched, not flat. That way there would be enough room for vegetables to grow and not become cramped.

Add to Ideabookby Amy Renea by Amy Renea Don't have money for a full-fledged greenhouse but want to grow seedlings? Try a cold frame. A cold frame is basically a base that's 1 foot to 2 feet high with a window over top. Keep the window on the base during winter and open it slightly to vent as the weather warms up.
