Before & After: Heartwood Roses’ Greenhouse

I have greenhouse envy (especially this time of year where, I had something lovely like this, — there would be a whole load of little plant babies soaking up the spring sun stuffed inside).

Pictures certainly convey a thousand words…so I will let them do the talking.

Connie at Hartwood Roses (a rose garden in Virginia that specializes in rare and unusual antique roses) built this greenhouse and photographed it step by step.  Want a good idea of how to put one together from scratch? Jump on over to her full post on the progress.

I’m following along to see how pretty this will all be once it is painted up and perfected — but even without the final touches…I am immensely covetous….but happy to see how they put it together (so I can continue to plot my own with a nice visual reference!)

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I love your instructions to build your own greenhouse. Propagating is my passion so it is my dream to build my own greenhouse. Thank you, very informative.
