There is a mass of different things which can be grown in the garden and these normally include tomatoes, potatoes, apples and other fruit. Some people would grow flowers for brightening up the house or garden or vegetables to help with the family budget. However, it appears that even grape growing is a possibility in the UK, which surprised me.
It, however, can be challenging to say the least but experts advise that certain grapes are better than others. Recommended varieties include Black Hamburg, Foster’s Seedling White and Mrs Pince, all names which I’ve never heard of. Growing these in your garden, maybe alongside or up the garden shed or on the front wall of your summerhouse is feasible. However you do need to feed them with a liquid feed in a combinations of blood, bone and fish on a regular basis for best results.
It’s important to keep the temperature as static as possible and this is where a garden shed or, in particular, solar potting shed can play a part. Ensure that the moisture is kept low when pollinating with the best time being about mid day. With some care a crop of grapes can be yours so that you can enjoy the fruits of your labour with your family.
Late in the year if you want to move your vines from the summer building or shed to a new area then the best time is in October because there is still plenty of rain and still some warmth about. If you use your summerhouse as a growing area and den then you can spend time studying the growing of grapes from books loaned from your local library.
My son has a conservatory – cum summer building in his garden, which is effectively his shed and outer storage area. And in this conservatory he has a grape vine which goes from outside under the edge of the roof and along the centre of the roof. As summer comes there is an amazing amount of grapes on there which smell great and are a great talking point. He was in two minds whether to dig the vine up from his garden but decided he likes the uniqueness of it.
Besides growing grapes the potting shed or near the large summerhouse windows will help you to grow other delicious fruit in relative ease and you will find the warmth will enable crops to flourish earlier than usual, or for longer, or for large crops. This ensures that the garden potting shed can be the most cost effective building you can buy.
The model to look out for is the Solar Potting shed with half glass roof. This means you have a double row of windows all along the front and both ends of the building but also half of the roof will be glazed. Light and warmth will flood in encouraging strong growth of all the plants within it.
To further help you make your mind up take a trip to the 1st Choice Leisure Buildings’ display site and view this unique potting shed in ‘situ’. This will help to convince you of how good this building is. Invest in one of these sheds or maybe one their superb summerhouses and you won’t regret it. The delicious fruit and produce you grow will convince you of this.
