1-Can I join the HGA if I don't have a greenhouse?
Yes, you may join HGA if you don't have a greenhouse. Many of our members don't have a greenhouse but enjoy indoor gardening in a variety of ways. HGA members sometimes finally build or purchase a greenhouse after they join.
2-I want to not only grow vegetables but also flowers. Are there members who will help me since I am new to indoor gargening?
HGA's more experienced members are encouraged to assist newer members regarding the various issues the newcomer may be facing.
3-What is the first thing I need to do before I buy a greenhouse?
Planning is the most essential thing you must do before buying a
greenhouse. There are many, many factors that go into buying, building, and operating a hobby greenhouse. HGA has compiled an excellent summary entitled "Before You Buy - Planning For Your Hobby
Greenhouse". It is free and can be downloaded by clicking here.
4-Can I assemble the greenhouse myself?
A team effort is best when assembling the greenhouse kit. Using simple household tools, smaller greenhouses can usually be assembled within a weekend. We recommend that you pay close attention to the manufacturers and suppliers instructions since different kits may require more or less team members and more specialized tools.
