Wooden greenhouses have recognisable practical advantages over aluminium greenhouses, for example it is easy to fix hooks, screws and wires to the greenhouse framework for training plants.
It is generally agreed that Western Red Cedar is the best choice of wood for a greenhouse frame since red cedar has natural oils which resist moisture, decay and infestation and is both long lasting and is renowned for its resistance to warp and twist. Cedar greenhouses tend to be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer making for a better growing environment than the aluminum greenhouses.
Many of the benefits of a wooden greenhouse are conferred by the quality, durability and characteristics of the timber. The trees, (Thuja plicata) are naturally durable, producing long lengths of timber that benefits from a true, strong and straight grain, making it the perfect choice for resilient wooden greenhouses. Red Cedar is free from pitch and naturally resistant to decay by pests and fungi, which makes it an ideal choice for use in a garden setting and much less needy in terms of regular maintenance compared to other softwoods.
