2 min read Glass Shop

If you’re a keen gardener, you will know the joy and satisfaction that growing your own plants and vegetables can bring. In times like these, with outdoor space being more valuable than ever right now, there is no better time to get stuck into growing new things in your greenhouse.

For those with green fingers, we hope our top 3 ideas below will give you some new inspiration for growing more in your greenhouse.

Three surprising things you can grow in your greenhouse!

1. Cucamelons

With more time on your hands, why not step outside your comfort zone and grow some more unusual vegetables & plants. Take Cucamelons for example, what looks like a hybrid between the watermelon and the cucumber - in mini form! With warm temperatures being a necessity, you could replace your current greenhouse glass with our high-performance glass to ensure that you create the ideal and controlled environment for these to thrive. Not only will they be the cutest member of your greenhouse, but they are also the perfect addition to your G&T!


2. Sweet Potato

The rise of the sweet potato; on-trend & prime for greenhouse growing. In recent years the versatile sweet potato has taken the top spot in recipes & on restaurant menus. A healthier alternative to the white potato, there has never been a better time to introduce them into your greenhouse. With sweet potatoes traditionally grown in warmer climates, why not let us help you ensure that your greenhouse provides the best possible, frost-free environment by replacing older glass with our greenhouse replacement glass.

3. Purple Cauliflower

When you think of colours in a greenhouse you traditionally think of red, from the likes of tomatoes and strawberries and green from the likes of courgettes and cucumbers. But how about purple? Popular varieties of the purple cauliflower-like Sicilia Violetta are high in vitamin A and are as easy to grow as the white cauliflower. As it's a prime time to boost your immune system, these are the perfect, vibrant addition to your greenhouse.
