Farming is the main source of income in Stardew Valley and it can be tough to know what to plant and when. Farming also depends on the season and that is why winter is tough for many farmers because there are no crops that can be planted in winter. That is where the Greenhouse comes in. The Greenhouse is a special farm building in which you can plant crops and trees and they will grow all year round. That is why the Greenhouse is so important because it stops you from needing the seasons to grow crops and it guarantees that the crops you plant will grow up without the danger of a new season hitting and destroying your crops. This particular building is not easy to make but it is well worth it if you know how to utilize it.
Here is a simple walkthrough that will tell you all you need to know about the Greenhouse in Stardew Valley.
The first thing that you need to know is how to repair the Greenhouse as it is just a rundown building on your farm when you see it. There are two ways to repair the building and the way depends on if you bought a Joja Mart membership card or not. If you did you can just pay Joja to rebuild the Greenhouse but if you are working towards it from the bundles in the Community Center then you need to complete the Pantry bundle in order to get the Greenhouse.
Now that you have the Greenhouse it is time to decide how to arrange everything you can have inside it. The first thing that you are going to need is crops. You can plant any crop from any season and it will grow as long as you water it. Watering the plants in the Greenhouse is an issue because you can either install sprinklers or you can water them yourself. Installing sprinklers takes up space which you could have used for more crops but watering the crops yourself takes time so it is up to you which setup you want for the crops.
Do not forget that crops are not the only thing that you can plant in the Greenhouse. You can also have trees in there which is a huge boost because you can plant 19 trees at once and they will give you fruit all year round. You can use that fruit to make preserves or jam and sell that to maximize your profit but keep in mind that trees have to have 2 spaces between them for them to grow properly and they will not grow if anything is in those 2 spaces.
For these reasons the Greenhouse is a must have for every farmer because it can provide you with a steady supply of income even in winter and it really helps you out with the fruit trees because otherwise they are a nightmare to grow on your farm if you don’t have enough space.
