What direction should your greenhouse face? Where to place your greenhouse is a big decision to take. Especially when you’ve bought a glass or polycarbonate model, it won’t be easy to move once you’ve positioned it.
You will usually place your greenhouse in a sunny place, with not too much wind and shade. If your greenhouse is placed in the shade, it will undermine the benefits of growing plants in a greenhouse, as sun is an important factor to heat your greenhouse. Depending on your climate, we would advise you to place the greenhouse either in a southern or western orientation. It also depends on what plants you want to grow and how much heat they need.
