Turning your Sunroom into a Greenhouse



Four Season’s sunrooms offer endless opportunities to design and customize. And the perfect touch could be to add an interior garden to your sunroom. Sheltered from the elements and situated in the sunlight, sunrooms are ideal for growing plants. 

You may be asking, “What kind of plants can I grow in my sunroom?” Plants that need lots of sunlight are ideal, as your sunroom feeds off of direct rays all day. Conveniently, plants that thrive in an indoor garden are plants that would not usually do as well outside due to the harshness of the weather. This way, if you are interested in gardening, you can grow a wide variety of plants inside and outside your sunroom. Additionally, sunroom gardens require less maintenance, and can be kept all year round. This is the perfect opportunity to grow something you always wished you could with the proper conditions. 

The following plants, herbs, and flowers are recommended for sunroom gardens:

Mint, Rosemary, Citrus plants, Hibiscus, Peace lily, Passion flowers, Easter cactus, Boston ferns, Orchids, Begonias, Spider plants, African violets, and Christmas cactus. 

Your next question may be along the lines of, “Can I grow vegetables in my sunroom?”  You are in luck! Herbs, vegetables, and even fruits can grow successfully in a sunroom. The direct sunlight and warm atmosphere support lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, and everything in between. Vegetables that thrive the most in a sunroom are ones that require a plethora of light and a large-enough container. This will allow them ample room to grow. Even though this garden is unconventional, do not forget to water your plants regularly and use fertilizer as needed. Nothing could be better than eating delicious fresh fruits and vegetables from your sunroom garden!

When organizing your indoor plants, keep in mind these important tips:

  • Think about the big picture, and make sure to include both large, bold trees and more basic, small shrubs to add depth and symmetry to your sunroom. 
  • Spend time picking out your containers by playing around with different style and size pots to support all different types of plant growth. You can even find self-watering containers to reduce the work and hassle of having a sunroom garden.
  • Watch your plants, and make sure to keep them healthy by adding water and fertilizer as needed. Pests can still get inside, so wipe down plants to prevent invasions. Re-pot plants often, as the direct sunlight fosters rapid growth. 
  • Keep an eye on your plants; make sure they are receiving the appropriate amount of sun, shade, moisture, food, and water. 

Four Seasons’ uniquely pioneered sunrooms can open up new doors that previously did not exist. If you have a passion for farm to table food, getting your hands dirty, and creating something with your whole family, an indoor garden within your sunroom is just what you need. Our sunrooms are constructed with CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™, which effectively regulates temperatures inside to provide a perfect space for gardening and family fun.

Below we highlight five reasons why we believe a sunroom is the perfect way to make a house feel more like a home.
