If you are interested in building your own we have PVC Greenhouse Plans located on our website.
Here is a video series of a pvc hoop house located in Mendocino California.
I wanted to include this monthly series because I found it interesting, and thought that you might too.
A hoop house is a great addition for any gardener. Since this greenhouse is in California, plant selection needs to be considered. As mentioned in the videos, the plants are hot weather vegetables.
If you live in a colder climate area, plant selection would need to be chosen for your area, by selecting the right plants for the season using a hoop house plants can be grown year round right through the winter – and can live a lot further North than California.
A Hoop house usually does not include an artificial heat source so it comes down to more planning and consideration to the plants that are being grown.
