Bring Your Garden Inside All Year Round: 3 Reasons Plants Love Our DIY Conservatories!

Growing plants is a challenging and rewarding endeavour, but the ever-changing British weather doesn’t always cooperate. Luckily, Trade Price Warmer Living have the perfect solution: self-build conservatory kits!

In this article, we’ll explore three fantastic reasons why our DIY conservatories are the perfect growing environment for your plants, surpassing both traditional outdoor gardening and other conservatory options. Let’s jump right in!

1. Total Control Over Sunlight

You might think that when it comes to growing plants, the more natural light you expose them to, the better. In reality, this isn’t always the case.

Strong sun and heat can cause the chlorophyll in the leaves to break down, leading to pale, bleached, or faded areas. Eventually, these areas can turn brown and brittle, which could even result in the plant dying.

While our conservatories still allow plenty of light to filter through the wide window panes, the tiled roofs block the intense midday sun from directly overhead. This not only creates a cooler and more comfortable space for you, but it also shields your plants from excessive heat and sunlight.

If you’re looking for even more control over the light exposure for your plants, we have a simple solution: skylights! By adding skylights to your DIY conservatory, you can invite more sunshine in, but in a gentler and less intense manner than a glass roof. Plus, we offer the option to integrate manual, automatic, or sun sensor blinds with the skylights, giving you the ultimate flexibility to adjust the amount of sunlight your plants receive.

2. Effective Protection Against the Elements

It’s no secret that plants don’t do well in the cold, especially desert-based plants like succulents and cacti. If you want your plants to thrive during autumn and winter, it’s essential to protect them from the chilly temperatures.

Trade Price Warmer Living’s conservatories are among the most insulated on the market. They’re built using sustainably sourced timber that acts as a natural insulator, and have roofs incorporating innovative Warmer Roof technology for the ultimate thermal efficiency.

The unique Warmer Roof structure features a 125mm multi-foil honeycomb insulation, complemented by an additional 53mm insulated plasterboard. Not only does this help retain heat during the cold winter season, but it also effectively blocks draughts from entering.

By safeguarding your plants from extreme temperatures, our conservatories provide the perfect sanctuary for their well-being. As an added bonus, they can also help reduce your heating bills!

3. Create the Perfect Microclimate

Any gardener knows, plants need more than sunlight and water to flourish. Humidity and ventilation are also key factors for their growth, especially when it comes to more delicate or exotic plant species.

Our conservatories are designed to give you complete control over the microclimate within. You’ll find that our regular doors and windows open wide, allowing plenty of refreshing air to flow in. Our skylights offer even more options for ventilation, whether you prefer manual, electronic, or even automatic operation. Plus, with the addition of a smart rain sensor, your windows will automatically close when it starts to rain, keeping your plants safe even when you’re not around!

By letting you easily adjust the humidity, ventilation, and temperature within, our conservatories make creating the perfect growing environment a breeze.
