Greenhouses are becoming more and more popular with gardeners looking to grow their own produce, an expert has suggested.
Nick Morgan, glasshouse specialist at the Royal Horticultural Society, said a greenhouse of any size or type is an "absolute asset" to any gardener, which can add a whole new dimension to what can be achieved.
The specialist went on to reveal he has noticed greenhouses becoming a subject more people want to discuss over the last few months.
"I give many talks each year and ‘making the most of your greenhouse’ is an ever-increasingly popular topic that I am asked to speak about," he explained.
Mr Morgan concluded by remarking he believes this interest in greenhouses is driven by a desire to grow fruit and vegetables at home by UK consumers.
In a recent article for the Daily Telegraph, Helen Yemm said a great activity for the coming week is to complete basic greenhouse chores, such as washing the glass, cleaning pots and trays and buying fresh seed compost.
