4 Season GrowCamp Mini Greenhouse...anyone? Growcampside4 Season GrowCamp Mini Greenhouse...anyone? GrowcampfrontHello,

I've just put together my GrowCamp mini greenhouse and am wondering if anyone here has any experience with this type of 4 season (maybe) growing? Believe this is the first year in the USA for this specific brand (GrowCamp - designed in Denmark). Am combining square foot gardening method in this 20" high raised bed. Yesterday I planted Bibb lettuce, Peas "N a Pot", golden beets, and cherry radishes. Just curious to know if anyone has any experience with this type of setup?

Okay, previewed this post and obviously, I am not submitting pictures correctly - sorry for the out-of-order sentence/picture structure.

Best,
Moses

4 Season GrowCamp Mini Greenhouse...anyone? Icon_wink Hi Martha, not sure how much I can tell you because it is brand new to me. Bought it online on 3/13/2010 and a week later it was up and running. It's been used in Europe for a few years apparently, and won several awards in England. The design of this unit appeals to me and I can say that it is a fairly sturdy little cold greenhouse. (has guide wires inside to hold it steady and square). It is 4' x 4', but the inside dimensions allow for a full 12 sq.ft of gardening with one row measuring about 9" sq. -where I can certainly plant things or place pots. If you 'google' GrowCamp, you'll come up with some sites that offer it, and GrowCamp.com offers a pdf. brochure. I'd not heard of this company before I saw it online, but I have hope that with its 25mm plastic foil enclosure, here in central Connecticut I might be able to grow spinach and cold hearties in the winter. Going to try!

Best,
Moses

Looks pretty neat, Moses. But remember, greenhouses need supplemental heat for year round gardening. If you're lucky to get frequent winter time sun, that may be all you need.

Here's a post of my experiment for use in the PNW, where one day of sunshine in the winter can be enough for the mayor to shut down schools and city government for folks to enjoy it!

Thanks for posting pics of your GrowCamp. I think they're neat. I've been planning on getting four of them for my back yard. I think they look great for protection from the heavy rain and wind we get here in las vegas sometimes. How is your GrowCamp doing so far?

Wow, I love that!!! Do you mind if I ask how much it cost? I have a wonderful table top greenhouse that I used to get my seeds started indoors for a few years. I would just set it in my window, and the seedlings would just TAKE OFF. LOVE it! I haven't used it in a couple years because it becomes a pretty major eyesore in the window, and, well, just laziness I guess. I really would love to put it to use outside and DO something fun with it, but it's open on the bottom, and not as big/square as your beauty.

Ok, never mind..hehehe. I looked it up. Not in the budget for me this year, or probably next, but I think that's extremely cool!!! It's on my wish list.

The lowest price i've seen is $398 for the 4x4 or $549.99 for the 4x8 GrowCamp. I also noticed that Home Depot and Costco just added the GrowCamp to their sites.

WOW! The price of this puppy has come waaaaay down, free shipping, and my daughter's charity would get a few pennies from Amazon Smile. It would fit on my br balcony, but would render it useless and be ugly when not in use (July-Sep). Wadayathink?

6 square feet is just barely enough area to walk into.

I'm having great success with the tulle over a variation* of Mel's covered wagon design. I just open up one side when I need to tend the garden. It occurs to me that if I used vinyl or heavy duty agribon instead I would have a very inexpensive greenhouse. And it could be easily taken down during the part of the year it's not needed.

------------

* Variation = Two extra struts to stabilize the structure and to help loft the tulle outward.

I have the inexpensive version of this greenhouse and it sits on my back deck year round. It give me space in the spring of the year to put the hardier transplants like celery and lettuce to stage before transplant. I also set trays that didn't germinate or were slow to inside and am surprised by what pops up much later than expected. Gardening sometimes isn't pretty and neither is nature but I appreciate some of those not so pretty things. A link to the much more inexpensive version that my brother picked up for $25 somewhere and gave it to me. He is now my favorite brother. The original plastic only lasted the first year and then replaced with 6 mil. clear sheet, I use butterfly paper clips to close the ends. Again not the prettiest but works for me.

Thanks for the feedback Mark and Dan. I'm just not used to this much bad weather. This is an unusually dark, wet winter. The thought of walking right out my balcony slider into a lush greenhouse made me giddy. Then I realized it wouldn't work. The door would have to be on the side, not the middle, in order to line up with the slider, and we'd either have to put it up and take it down every year or let it be an eyesore and ruin our view when not in use. My indoor garden is doing okay, and I can set up another one for a fraction of the cost and inconvenience of a greenhouse, so it's time to be sensible and move on. Rolling Eyes

This Geodesic dome greenhouse would be a great addition to my back yard!
