Having a garden with not much space means it’s difficult to start seeds growing when the weather is slow to warm up. For this reason I had been looking for something I could use for indoor planting that wasn’t a brown or black plastic seed tray that looked like it belonged in a shed.
Then I found the perfect thing! A mini greenhouse from Ikea – and for only £12.
Quick and easy to assemble
Everything you need comes flat-packed in one box and you can put it together in minutes with no tools needed.
The greenhouse has a white steel frame that measures 45cm wide and 35cm high with a depth of 22cm. Within the frame you slot the plastic sheets that make the house. The frame then fits into slots on the tray base. On this I’ve been able to fit seven small pots.
Once you’re all set up, you can open or close the top windows – handy for getting in there when it’s watering time. And you can leave them propped open if you want to give your seedlings some air.
It does the job and it looks pretty good, too!
