You have big plans to finally start your vegetable garden. For a while you have been researching the possibilities, what it will cost and what needs to be done to get started with the vegetable garden. The necessities for starting a vegetable garden depend on its size, what exactly you want to grow, and how much time you want to put into it. If you are just starting out, it may be better to start small. This way you can first learn the trade and then expand your vegetable garden with multiple plant species.
Do I need a greenhouse?
A greenhouse is recommended in most cases. The advantage of this is that the weather conditions are more stable in the greenhouse, so you will have a better harvest. Owning a greenhouse allows you to grow multiple types of fruit and vegetables. For example, you can only grow cucumbers and tomatoes in a greenhouse. The weather in the Netherlands is too changeable and cold for these Mediterranean vegetables. In addition to purchasing a greenhouse, it may be necessary to purchase grow lighting. This allows you to give certain plant species the amount of sun they need and otherwise wouldn’t get. So whether you need grow lighting depends on what you want to grow.
