"Who loves a garden loves a greenhouse too."

Why we recommend greenhouses

If you have even a small sunny spot in your yard, I believe your ultimate goal should be a greenhouse. Greenhouses provide more gardening space, total climate control, and the best (and free) light source of all…the sun.

When do you need a greenhouse? When your plants and enthusiasm have overflowed your house. Or you've become serious about supplying much of your family's veggie needs yourself.

Look at the expense of a greenhouse as an investment in your family's health and well-being. Providing significant amounts of high quality, nutritious, safe food is more than just a hobby… it may even mean survival!

This months e-zine is dedicated to greenhouses. Even if you think it's not for you… Give it a listen, you may become a believer too.

Why we recommend Solexx


Interested in a greenhouse, but bewildered by the vast array of kits available?

Our Hydroponics Simplified philosophy on greenhouse selection:

We're absolutely sold on a material for greenhouse panels called Solexx. The insulated glazing panels provide bright, even lighting which accelerates plant growth. Solexx kits include a fiberglass reinforced framework which is deceptively strong, UV resistant, and very easy to assemble.

Our Unique "Essentials Bundles" Deals



If you check out our Solexx sales page, you will find that the prices for our kits are the same as most other suppliers: retail prices. But, if you look a little closer, you will find that we have thrown in tons of freebies with each Kit. You would have to pay hundreds of dollars for all of these essential extras and desirable upgrades.

We just feel that you are going to need these accessories, so we discount our products by throwing in "bundled essentials" with each Solexx greenhouse kit we sell. Shipping is free to the 48 contiguous states! Read more about it here: Best Solexx Prices
