Good Idea: Foldable Greenhouse

Good Idea: Foldable Greenhouse

Dutch artist Daniel Schipper has designed this foldable plastic greenhouse, which we think is perfect for apartments and other small spaces.

This looks like it's small enough to fit on an apartment patio. As any gardener knows, it's important to keep seedlings covered in the beginning stages of growth, so they can get big enough and strong enough to withstand the elements. This looks like it's a prototype at the moment, but the artist has included his email on his web site, and it's worth contacting him for more information.
