In today’s culture of healthy eating and clean living, the importance of good food has never been more important. You may remember the days when growing your own food was a quite bohemian thing to do, or reserved for those with very little to do otherwise, but nowadays, people from all walks of life are getting into the idea of growing their own produce. Put simply, nowadays, there is a lot more awareness of where things come from, and the human cost of what we take for granted at the supermarket.
In the winter, it can be very difficult to source the sort of produce which is considered part of eating well, and there’s no simpler way than growing it yourself. Sprouting your own seeds and growing your own crops is a great way of ensuring that you can get a year-round supply of greens at a fractional cost – and also to ensure that you’re eating right and eating well.
Saying that, even the hardiest of vegetables simply won’t do well in Winter without the aid of a greenhouse. There are a number of greenhouses which are for sale across the UK, and they come in all forms – large, small and in-between. As such, it can be difficult sometimes to get the right staging solution for your greenhouse. We’re here to help with a variety of greenhouse staging- all hand-made and hand-treated in our workshop in Llysfaen, North Wales, using sustainably sourced wood which is also hand-treated to last year after year.
It really pays to invest in good greenhouse staging solutions, which include heavy duty greenhouse staging, potting benches and more. Greenhouse staging is purpose-built shelves which provide storage space for trays of seedlings through to giant pots and can be a real lifesaver when it comes to growing lots of plants in a very small space.
Put simply, repurposing old pallets or bits and bobs from around the house might be all well and good for the short term, but if you’re looking to get the most out of every single seed you plant and produce a year-long supply of fresh greens, you’ll want to make sure that conditions are as good as good can be – and that you can adequately organise your crops with the use of folding or heavy duty greenhouse staging.
Growing your own greens saves you time, travel costs and also shopping bills – as well as provides you with a great source of pride and the confidence that you really are eating well. You grew something from a seed, you’re more than aware of what exactly has been done to help it grow – and you’re also saving a ton of money at the same time.
It’s pretty well known that the food industry certainly doesn’t make it cheap to eat well, and investing in a greenhouse, adequate greenhouse staging and spending 5-10 minutes per day producing your cheap and simple to grow foods can help you eat well, for far less money than what you’d hand over on a typical week’s shopping.
