    I’ve been told that wrapping your plants up in plastic doesn’t let them breathe because no air can get to them.It might be easy and cheap but it won’t help your plants.

  2. Andrea M on January 9, 2022 at 4:02 pm

    Love the greenhouse box idea ❤️🌿

  3. Mimon homestead on January 9, 2022 at 4:04 pm

    Thank you

  4. YADia AG on January 9, 2022 at 4:04 pm

    I used large clear storage totes too and omg it was amazing for seedlings. Will absolutely use this idea again.

  5. Nazarene X on January 9, 2022 at 4:11 pm

    Much Love

  6. Mohamed Azarudeen on January 9, 2022 at 4:13 pm

    Brilliant… I always thought green house meant big non brick domes. These are what I wanted.

  7. haydeh abdolahian on January 9, 2022 at 4:14 pm

    Our winter in MN goes down to -20 and up ! So you think the bag would save my roses in pot I have on the deck ?

  8. Sana Khan on January 9, 2022 at 4:16 pm

    Do I have to remove during the day for air ? Or plant don’t need air in winter

  9. Ping Pong on January 9, 2022 at 4:16 pm

    box is bad idea – rain will pool on top.

  10. TreyceM on January 9, 2022 at 4:16 pm

    This is extremely helpful, thank you for the information.

  11. Nitien Anand on January 9, 2022 at 4:17 pm

  12. Kat kat TAROT and PARANORMAL on January 9, 2022 at 4:18 pm

    This gave me an idea. What is you use those plastic drawers to grow mice greens

  13. NatureLover Inspirations on January 9, 2022 at 4:18 pm

    Well done 👍

  14. Martin Ljunggren-Abbasi on January 9, 2022 at 4:18 pm

    Used vinyl shower curtain liners work well for covering small greenhouse structures.

  15. Bakka Karriem on January 9, 2022 at 4:20 pm

    Cute, simple & affordable. #Great job thanks for plastic awareness segment. #Keepupthegreatwork

  16. T Sonja on January 9, 2022 at 4:20 pm

    I’m in 7B and I will attempt for the first time growing atleast 4 edible plants all year
    I will be using atleasr 3 of the greenhouse configurations you have shown here. I a. Planting more melons as we speak…and if the frost stays away till October 20tg I should be fine but these green house methods will increase chances. I also want to extend my tomatoes

  20. Cakepan45 on January 9, 2022 at 4:28 pm

    Wow how helpful. I will be making these.

  21. Tess Monro on January 9, 2022 at 4:29 pm

    I use the large totes to raise my seeds. Works really well.

  22. cora nation on January 9, 2022 at 4:29 pm

    So smart. Thank you.

  23. 곰배밭농부 on January 9, 2022 at 4:33 pm

  26. Frank Jones on January 9, 2022 at 4:37 pm

    Instead of nailing the plastic, why not use a staple gun and staples.- Easy to remove and cheaper.

  27. Melodee Lucido on January 9, 2022 at 4:38 pm

    Brilliant!! I love your videos 💝

  28. Frances B-P on January 9, 2022 at 4:40 pm

    Gotta love simplicity! And affordability!

  29. Edan Garden on January 9, 2022 at 4:40 pm

    Thank you

  30. Jane Citizen on January 9, 2022 at 4:43 pm

    Is this greenhouse idea, only for winter frost ? Do you do this is summer 🙂

  31. Harlan Woodward on January 9, 2022 at 4:43 pm

    Check out "Makers Pipe" conduit connectors here on youtube for diy greenhouse.

  32. norlens noel on January 9, 2022 at 4:43 pm

    How about creating a mini pond beside the plants and surrounding with rocks?

  33. Amy Pola on January 9, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    Could you do something like this to cover porches, or something slanted doors, and windows in heavy winters?

  34. Breva Creative on January 9, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    Great video! Love the different options! We just made a video making larger greenhouses out of bended conduit and plastic ironed together. It was a super cheap way to make a greenhouse for a larger planting area! Check it out!

  37. pigeon on January 9, 2022 at 4:46 pm

    Love your video….going out of town for Thanksgiving and needed a fix asap for delicate ferns in case of frost…you’re my hero ! Thank you 😊

  38. Nils Schenkel on January 9, 2022 at 4:48 pm

    The box style greenhouse looks like its roof might sag or even tear under a lot of rain, hail or snow. Not saying this happening would be likely, but just to be safe you might want to make the roof an arching shape by wedging one or two pieces of plastic pipe, bamboo or a springy branch in the frame… Just like in gothic cathedrals 🙂

  39. Dora Varon on January 9, 2022 at 4:50 pm

    Thank you so much!!! Amazing ideas!!!! ❤️😃

  40. Christopher Cook on January 9, 2022 at 4:50 pm

    Absolutely reuse plastic sheeting and totes and such 👍🏻

  41. Wilhemina Boone on January 9, 2022 at 4:51 pm


  42. Jane Norton on January 9, 2022 at 4:51 pm

    Water will collect and puddle on that roof. It would have been jus as easy to slope it.

  43. Jeanna in NC on January 9, 2022 at 4:52 pm

    Awesome job creating inexpensive way to grow in the shoulder seasons.

  44. Michael Skelton on January 9, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    The only issue is that not having adequate airflow can cause mold and disease growth on plants.

  45. VVS on January 9, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    Is it ok if some air goes inside cos howmuch i cover it, there are few gaps at the staple holes where some air can move it.

  46. 곰배밭농부 on January 9, 2022 at 4:55 pm

    Thanks for your great videos:-)

  47. Sanjay Pandey on January 9, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    https://youtu.be/2za_ZpGkRa8 looks better as big polyhouses are expensive according to this engineer from Meerut

  48. Anonna chowdhury on January 9, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    But how to water them when locking it?

  49. Tõnis Eenmäe on January 9, 2022 at 4:59 pm

    I really like that measurement part. In such way one can prove if something really works as it was expected. Thanks for posting those quick tips!

    However, I’d suggest two things – when fixing plastic film on wooden frame, narrow (e.g. 20 mm x 10 mm x ..) wooden strips of maybe even strips of 3 layer plywood would really give a long-lasting result – wind tends to break plastic film easily when it is fixed just by nails (even if they have large flat heads). That additional wood doesn’t cost much extra neither. If frost is really a serious issue, a double-layer of plastic could be used – ordinary plastic sheet outside and either ordinary or bubble plastic sheet on inner side on that frame. Or even a dual solution – plastic box(es) over the plants and that wooden frame + plastic sheet construction over everything.

  50. Twenty Percenter on January 9, 2022 at 5:00 pm

    #5 how about box in a bigger box? to have smaller temperature shifts inside, during coldest days, or place inside 5-6L bottle(s) with water to keep more heat inside, also to try minimize temperature drops. Will it work?
