Cheap Portable Greenhouses for Sale

Updated on December 3, 2012

Greenhouses needn't cost an arm and a leg, when you can buy a cheap portable plastic greenhouse online that does the job. There are plenty of just such inexpensive portable greenhouses for sale over at Amazon, and I am bringing a few to your attention here.

Most of us don't use a greenhouse throughout the year. Depending on the climate in which you live, they may require heating in winter. Most of us make greatest use of a greenhouse in the spring, when our seedsstart to grow and need that extra little bit of warmth and protection from the elements.

This is where mini plastic portable greenhouses come into their own. they are perfect for bringing on seedlings early or giving a bit of extra warmth and protection to flowering plants.

They can even be placed directly inside an unheated greenhouse for maximum benefit. Make sure a late frost doesn't kill your young plants this year by buying some form of protection for them..

Best of all, they are cheap as well as efficient, highly portable so that you can place them where they'll receive the most sunlight or warmth. We can even erect them inside the house to give our seedlings and young plants added protection against cats or other household pets.

What makes this portable greenhouse is the addition of shelving units.

Most portable greenhouses of this type do not come with shelving which you then have to either buy separately or fashion out of strips of wood on bricks (that works well by the way).

What you see is what you get with this portable greenhouse.

It has a basic tubular frame with full instructions on how to erect (and its not difficult), and is covered with a reinforced plastic cover with a zippered door for access and ventilation.

It can be easily dismantled and put away when not longer in use, and placing your plants and seeds tray on the 12 provided wire-frame shelves will extend the growing season quite a bit.

Your plants will be snug and warm inside this plastic portable greenhouse.

Big enough to walk-in, it is a large and spacious 4.5' x 7' x 6.5'.
