Greenhouse Business provides you with a list of considerations when making a greenhouse investment. These range from basic, introductory level directions for the beginning commercial grower to tips for more experienced professionals.
When choosing a location for a greenhouse, if possible, look for one that has high winter light intensity, moderate winter temperatures, low humidity, and easy access to markets. The accessibility of existing utilities will help reduce establishment costs and will positively affect fuel costs. Avoid trees or buildings that may shade the greenhouse, although they will help reduce heating costs if properly located so as to shield the structure from the wind. Make sure to leave enough space for later expansion and customer parking if you have a retail presence as well.
