Greenhouse Covers Extend Your Winter Gardening Season

While purchasing greenhouse covers may seem like more of a springtime activity, it’s not too late to extend your growing season and prepare for winter gardening. Few gardeners are content with the length of their growing season, especially in colder, Northern climates. By constructing greenhouses and raised garden beds with durable greenhouse covers, the possibility to extend your growing season into the winter is both possible and fruitful.

What Prevents Winter Gardening?

Colder climates have a limited growing season due to frost and limited heat sources at night. During the daytime the sun warms the soil, which protects your plants from frost at night. Moist, smooth soil absorbs the most heat and provides the most protection from frost. In climates with dry, rough soil, or soil that’s frozen, there’s no heat barrier to protect plants from freezing and dying.

How Greenhouse Covers Extend Growing Season

Greenhouse covers, whether applied to a greenhouse structure, a gardening tunnel or raised garden bed, provide frost protection. Greenhouse covers absorb the energy from the sun during the day and use the excessive buildup of heat to protect your garden from frost and wind during cold winter nights. Greenhouse covers allow the soil to stay moist, smooth and absorbent. It’s important to remember that greenhouse covers must not touch the plants you’re covering, as they will freeze where the plastic touches them. If you want to be able to eat from your garden all year long, building a greenhouse and buying durable greenhouse covers will be well worth the cost. Greenhouse covers can extend your growing season into the winter and essentially make it so you can eat from your garden all year long. Imagine walking out to your greenhouse as the snow falls and being able to enjoy fresh, healthy salads. Choosing the right greenhouse covers makes this a reality.
