Green houses, cold frames, and cloches are all great season extendersGreen houses or hot houses are structures that can be built out of glass, plastic, or fiberglass. They are designed to give you a warm place to start your garden veggies, to grow winter greens and in some cases, even fruit trees.
Hot houses can be small for the home gardener or large enough for commercial production. You can build them yourself or buy them from a garden supply company.
