In 17th century, the greenhouses were built out of bricks and were sort of timber shelters. By 19th century, the behaviour of greenhouse which is also known as glasshouse has changed to a large extent.
There is an increase in the glasshouse culture in England and now the greenhouses have become a part of modern world. It is apparently a glass or plastic enclosed and framed structure. The main function of greenhouse is to grow various fruits and vegetables. These fruits and veggies will be absolutely safe and secure inside the greenhouse. It is mainly because some plants require only certain amount of sun and water. Along with that they also take care of the temperature maintenance. Certain fruits and vegetables will grow properly in a certain temperature and it is important that the temperature is maintained. Also the glazing on the sides of the glasshouse protects the plants from too much of heat and sunlight. Usually the frame of the greenhouse are made of aluminium, galvanized steel and also woods such as redwood or cypress. There are end wall openings in the greenhouse along with some electric fans which will maintain the air circulation in the greenhouse. The night time temperatures also matter in the greenhouse. The most important plants which are grown in greenhouse are sweet peas, snapdragons, daffodils, ferns and cacti. In cold countries, the greenhouses grow tomatoes and other warm weather vegetables.
The maintenance of greenhouses is a major responsibility. It is also important that you maintain clean surrounding in the glasshouse. The glasshouses make the house even more pretty and should be always taken care of.
