It is no secret that, in an effort to organize a greenhouse on the site, summer residents are trying to organize the space as efficiently as possible and at the same time save it. In a small garden, it fits very organically into the situation greenhouse "Gherkin"... This mini-building has a simple modification and is ideal for growing seedlings.

Model characteristics

"Ogurchik" is very fond of modern summer residents. This structure has a modest height of 1 meter. But, having fit into the design of the garden or vegetable garden, the construction performs its functions perfectly, and the seedlings grown in it then take root in the open field without problems.
The greenhouse parameters are 1 by 4.8 and 1.1 meters. In total, it takes 5 meters. A small-sized structure will cost the owner of the cottage where cheaper than a greenhouse, lined up in human growth. It is able to create an optimal microclimate for plants during the summer season.

What materials is the frame made of?

The frame is usually made of galvanized steel profile. But there are foundations made of wood, plastic or metal. The frame provides reliable fixing of the film... There are also special slats so that the greenhouse can be convenient to open and close.

Covering material

As a covering material acts polyethylene film... She is removed for the winter. If we are talking about reinforced film, which is often used by gardeners, then with proper care it can last for several seasons. You don't need to shoot it in the fall. Effective and cellular polycarbonate... He has several advantages:

  • the material is durable, lightweight;
  • polycarbonate has good transparency;
  • allows you to leave the greenhouse for the winter without disassembling it;
  • provides the greenhouse with flexibility and decent thermal insulation;
  • excellent resistance to the vagaries of the weather.

Reference. For construction, colored film is used (most often black). But it is not a covering material and is used only for mulching the soil. Such a film is laid on the ridges.

Which plants are suitable for growing?

The greenhouse is suitable for growing flowers, cabbage, tomatoes and of course, cucumbers.

It protects seedlings from birds, pests and cold. Therefore, summer residents often grow early crops in it: radish or salad.

Plants from the greenhouse usually yield half a month earlier than those planted outdoors.

Disadvantages of mass-produced models

"Cucumber" can be made with your own hands or you can buy a ready-made kit. Serial-produced models easily fit into a regular car and do not require any special care during transportation. But they are not without disadvantages... For example, in the kit no film... You will have to buy it separately. In this case, the cost of a greenhouse rises markedly in comparison with a building made by one's own hands.

Sometimes the covering material is included in the kit, but not always its quality and color are what is necessary for the full operation of the future greenhouse.

In the production model, there is usually a short-lived covering material. It only lasts for one season.

Do-it-yourself greenhouse "Gherkin"

To build a greenhouse on your own, first of all, you need to create a competent drawing future structure and choose a place for installation. Suitable for this the sunniest part of the sitewhere there is no draft and tall trees.

When self-executing greenhouses, it will cost the owner of the dacha much cheaper... Moreover, it is very simple to build it, it is enough to stock up on all necessary materials, which include:

  1. Arcs and extensions for them
  2. Free slats, crossbars
  3. Cord
  4. Nuts, screws
  5. Clips for fixing the cover.

How to build a greenhouse?

Installation of a building takes about hours... It runs like this:

  1. Extension cords are installed at the ends of the arcs, then they are buried in the soil
  2. The gap between the extreme arcs is 5 meters
  3. arcs are installed at the same height. To measure the level, it is best to pull the rope between the extreme arcs.
  4. A crossbar is bolted to the top point - the basis of the greenhouse
  5. A covering is pulled onto the fixed frame, which is fixed with clips prepared in advance.

Important! When it comes to building a mobile structure, a wooden base is chosen for it, to which the ends of the arcs are attached.

Sometimes gardeners build a "Ogurchik" with an opening top - a greenhouse "Ogurchik" premium, which allows you to work in it with great convenience.

Greenhouse "Ogurchik" has long been recognized by gardeners as a durable and practical construction. Interestingly, despite its name, tomatoes are grown in it more often and more readily than cucumbers.
