Turn your screened porch into a greenhouse for the winter. You can opt for a year-round permanent greenhouse or a temporary one to use in the winter, depending upon how you normally use your screen porch. Your greenhouse can let you start seeds while there is still snow on the ground, winter over delicate plants and continue your gardening through the winter months.

How to Build a Patio Greenhouse ~ By Cheryl Munson, eHow Contributor

Many homes have gardens — but not every home has a greenhouse. A gardener makes a clear and obvious statement about just how seriously they take gardening and caring for their plantings when they install a greenhouse. It doesn’t take a major investment to have a greenhouse. You can build a “mini” greenhouse to protect your plants through all sorts of weather, and protect your wallet from having to repurchase plants after a frost, drought or rainstorm.

  3. No real need for that here (at the moment) as we don’t get all that cold. I overwintered some tropical Michelia champaca outside to see if they would cark but they survived admirably so we must be bordering on the tropics here in northern Tassie ;). I notice your page is snowing…probably time to get stuck into that porch ASAP methinks 😉
