||While it is entirely up to
you where you place your FlowerHouse™, keep in mind that
its locality will make all the difference to your garden.
Place your FlowerHouse™ on flat, even ground and if
possible, raised above the surrounding
ground. This will allow for good drainage of
rainwater. Choose an area where there will be maximum exposure
to the sun. Your FlowerHouse™ garden will benefit from
the immense sunlight. If all day exposure is not
possible, morning sun from the east is second best. With sun
first thing in the morning your plants can begin
photosynthesis early, thus, maximize growth throughout the day.
If you are planning to use your FlowerHouse™ year-round, place
it where it would allow for the most winter sun exposure.
FlowerHouse™ products should not be used in
extremely high winds that exceed 70 mph. Use in such
conditions may result in damage to your FlowerHouse™ or plants,
or severe injury to you. Protect your FlowerHouse™ from
prevailing winds. The winter prevailing winds are
especially detrimental to the vitality of your plants.
If you are unsure of the direction of the prevailing wind,
check with your local weather service. If possible,
set your FlowerHouse™ where your garage, home, or other
structure can provide defense from the wind. But be
cautious of trees that may block needed sun. By placing
your FlowerHouse near your home, you are sure to spend more
quality time in your garden. Large trees and shrubs can
help guard your FlowerHouse™ from wind, as well. The
main door should be located downwind to protect your plants
from a blast of outside air when entering or exiting your
Some added features to the FlowerHouse™ assist
in its protection from the wind. Once your FlowerHouse™ is
fully erected, secure it using all available high-wind tie-downs,
and all supplied stakes. Along the bottom, place heavy
materials on the skirting. Use decorative materials,
such as stones, bricks, landscape timers, or potted plants, to
weigh it down. In addition to their practical purpose, these
materials can be used to decorate the inside and outside of
your FlowerHouse™. You should plan to cover the skirting in
the interior. Make sure to do so before installing any
shelving or plant benches.
As you water your plants, it is
impossible not to get water on the ground. To avoid a muddy
floor in the interior of your FlowerHouse™, cover it with pea
rock, fieldstone, bricks, gravel or mulch.
Before setting up your FlowerHouse™, be
sure that it does not violate any law or ordinance in your

your local cable, gas and electric company to establish
