How many of you love the idea of having a greenhouse, but don’t want to commit to an entire permanent structure in your yard dedicated to this? I know that I am this way and that is why I love the idea of having a greenhouse that can be put away when growing season is over. I want to introduce you to my new friend, the Horti Hood 90° from Cave Innovations. The Horti Hood 90° is a wall mounted folding greenhouse. If you have a fairly tall, wooden fence in your yard, the Horti Hood 90° just might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
I received one for this review and was very anxious to get it set up. Everything you need to assemble it is included, even the storage bags for the off season. The assembly is very similar to putting a tent together. The poles are fiberglass and you just kind of shimmy them through the same way you would a tent. I was able to put it together mostly on my own, but I did have my 12 year old come out to help me at times just for the sake of balancing it. Once it starts coming together, it’s awkward and heavy, so I recommend having a helper. I also needed my husband’s help to mount it to the fence for me, since I am not good with the power tools.
Once it was up we all just kind of stood around and beheld it’s dome-ness. It’s very nice to look at. You can see that the greenhouse features two mesh covered ventilation panels, allow the plants to breathe while at the same time keeping out any critters.
I found that it was more spacious than I expected it to be. As you can see, I could easily fit in another planting shelf later on if I wanted to and there is also plenty of floor room for more potted plants. The greenhouse lifts up to allow you to get in and there are also different hooks you can use to hold it up as high as you want.
It even can be folded all the way up against the wall when not in use. This is a feature that I find very cool and convenient. The integral awning is there to prevent rain build up in the pleats when folded open, which is really needed here in Oregon where it rains for a good portion of the year.
So what do you think of the Horti Hood? I am in love with mine and I’m sure it will get a ton of use for the rest of the summer and into the fall to extend out my growing season. Then in the Spring I’ll get it going again with some seedlings. It’s going to be great.
