Five Healthy Vegetables You Can Grow in the Greenhouse

If you are interested in growing healthier vegetables at home to change your diet, you might want to talk to experts about the difficulty of getting a decent harvest from each type of produce, and their nutrition requirements. However, there are some vegetables that can be easily grown in a greenhouse, and you can get a decent harvest next year to share with your friends and family members. Find out more about them below.
  1. Butternut Squash

You can grow butternut squash in a big greenhouse easily. You will need a container, otherwise, your plant will get out of control. If you live in colder climate, make sure that the soil is warm and moist before you plant your butternut squash seeds. You also need to know that butternut squash plants take up a lot of space, therefore, you might want to grow them vertically. Prune the side shoots and provide support for the plant, so you can save space in the greenhouse.
  1. Cherry Tomatoes

The easiest way to grow cherry tomatoes in the greenhouse is to get some planting bags, cut holes in them, and water the small plants every 1-2 days. Use Charlie Carp fertilizer to feed the soil regularly. You will need to get rid of the long, non-flowering side shoots, so all the nutrients and water goes in the part of the plant where tomatoes are growing.
  1. Aubergine

One of the sources of healthy vegetable oil, the aubergine can be grown easily in the greenhouse. You can sow your seeds as early as February or March in a pot. When the plant starts growing and the roots are strong enough, you can replant the individual seedlings into a larger pot or plant box. Once the plant is about 40 cm-s tall, remove the main tip to allow branching out.
  1. Sweet peppers

You can easily grow sweet peppers in the greenhouse, from seeds. You will need to plant your seeds and replant the seedlings when they are about 2 inches tall. Do water the plant regularly, and provide support for the plant if necessary. If you like spicy food, you might even plant a few chilli peppers to have a fresh supply of spices for your dishes.
  1. Kale

You can grow this plant in the greenhouse in the winter, as it is not sensitive to colder weather. It is full of vitamin K, and you can harvest all year round to keep your family healthy. Plant your seeds, transplant the seedlings when they are about 4-5 inches tall, and bury the stems deep. Use the kale for fresh salads with lime juice, for a healthy soup, or cook them with potatoes as a side.


Growing your own vegetables in the greenhouse is one of the most satisfying things you can do at home. Let the kids pick on the tomatoes for an afternoon snack, use your sweet peppers and kale to make delicious salads, and make a perfect pumpkin pie of your butternut squash. The main benefit of growing your vegetables in the greenhouse is that it is easy to manage the area and you can protect the plants from pests.
