Can I Use The Garage As A Plant Nursery?

If you love fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers as much as we do, you’re going to love this idea. Your Neighborhood Garage Door Repair team would like to show you how to convert an area of your garage into a nursery. If you’d like to jump-start your garden we have some great ideas for you to get your garden started early.

Use Your Garage to Plant a Nursery

Just like babies, young plants and seedlings need a warm environment to get started. If your garage is insulated and relatively warm it should work. But, the area also needs to be free from frigid blasts that could easily kill the young plants. If you don’t have a garage that has that warm space in it, you might need to park your car outside for four to eight weeks while the seedlings take root.

If your garage has windows, the incoming sunlight can also help get the seeds started. You are going to need an elevated table to get your seedlings started. If you don’t have an elevated you can make an easy one using two sawhorses, two 2 x 4’s and some chicken wire. We’re looking for a way to keep the plants off the cold garage floor.

Supplies Needed to Get Started

Three of the most critical things needed for successful seedling growing is temperature, good soil, and watering. With the items below it will help to make your nursery successful. Here’s a list of things you’ll need to get your nursery started and experience the most success:

  1. Seed starting heat mats will help to keep temperature consistent
  2. Plastic sheeting to make sure the temperature is consistent and is draft free
  3. Starter growing trays to start the seeds
  4. Larger growing trays to transition the seedlings for further growth
  5. Seed starting soil mix and potting soil for the seeds to be transferred to
  6. Spray bottles to water the young seedlings
  7. 48” Fluorescent Lighting fixtures that use T8 bulbs are best, or grow lights
  8. Lighting timers to limit the amount of light the plants receive
  9. Thermometer (75 to 85 degrees is the best
  10. Plant markers to identify what the seedlings are

Allow Plants to Grow

Patience, patience, patience. Watch the soil temperature to make sure the plants are warm. Mist the plants to keep them hydrated; be careful with water. Too little or too much water can stop them from developing.

As soon as the seedlings get strong enough they’re ready to transition to the larger growing trays. The bigger plants still need to be kept warm and moist,. If you don’t have room for the young plants in your current nursery space you may want to start a separate growing area for them. In time the young plants will grow into plants strong enough to transplant into your garden.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
