What can you grow in a lean to Greenhouse?

When designing your lean to Greenhouse, consider the types of plants you wish to grow. 


Many gardeners with lean to Greenhouses take advantage of the adjoining external wall, and train plants such as tomatoes, peppers and squash to grow upwards along it. Some also develop beautiful strains of orchids, admired for their length, again utilising the brick wall of the home or property. 


Opt for a lean to Greenhouse with a high roof and you’ll be able to grow large plants like oranges and palm trees, creating a wonderful tropical oasis. 


A small lean to Greenhouse allows you more control over your Greenhouse growing environment, meaning you can tailor it for specific plants. This generally means you can start planning earlier, harvest later, and increase the yield of your crops. 


For those living in colder climates, consider growing hardier vegetables in your lean to Greenhouse, such as leafy greens, cabbage, cauliflower, aubergine, and cucumbers.
