What to Consider in your Mini Greenhouse

Does it keep temperartures warm?
Both work well in keeping the climate of your mini greenhouse warmer than the cold temperatures outside, transferring those all important UV solar rays to your plants to ensure photosyntesis and warm the soil.

Can the Greenhouse be Ventilated?
The Greenhouses both have venitalition windows. However if cross ventiation is important to you, the Harvest Village Mini Greenhouse 2m stands out as its ventiation windows are located on either side of the greenhouse to maximise airflow.

Insect Window
Both products have an effective way of ventiating your greenhouse whislt keeping pests out with thier screens. Its important that your mini greenhouse has insect mesh when purchasing, as without it you expose your crop to unwanted disease.

Cover opening
Having easy access to your seedlinds is important so you can easily weed, water and pick veg. The Harvest Village Mini Greenhouse offers a generous opening that ensures you can access your garden veggies. And the Maze Polytunnel also unzips to enable this too.

Velcro weatherproof opening
A mini greenhouse will be exposed to the sun and rain and needs to be highly weatherpoof. The Harvest Village Mini Greenhouse 2m has the best weatherproof features, because the opening windows are all opened via Velcro, a highly weatherproof tool. Other gardening tools have Zip opening, which metals can corode in the rain/sun.


The best mini greenhouse is the Harvest Village Mini Greenhouse 2m. Its opening windows are weatherproof, not made from metal zips that corode but Velcro, its ventiation windows are on the opposite ends encouraging cross ventiation, its strudy frame and UV Solar cover make it the best mini greenhouse on the market.
