We barely use our root cellar at the moment and are in the midst of constructing garden beds and planters for vegetables, fruits, and herbs.
We don’t really have a great space indoor for growing plants, but we were thinking we might be able to convert unused root cellar space into a greenhouse since it naturally controls temperature and moisture, adding UV lights. The space would mainly be used to develop seedlings for planting after last frost or maintain a limited garden (like a few herbs, maybe a couple tomato plants).
We live in Ontario, Canada. Outside temperatures vary between -40C (dead of winter) and 45C (hottest summer). Not quite sure what the root cellar climate is like as we don’t yet have a thermometer or moisture meter.
Would there be a way to convert the root cellar space into a greenhouse? If so, how?
Can it still be used as a root cellar after conversion?
