The Greenhouse is undoubtedly one of the most important structures in Stardew Valley. It allows you to grow most of the plants and fruit trees in the game without worrying about the season. Check below how to use the Greenhouse in the best way and how to unlock it!
Best layout for the Greenhouse
The Greenhouse has dimensions of 10x12 blocks for crops (central square) and a tile border around the place where you can plant fruit trees. The most optimized way to use the Greenhouse is by positioning Iridium sprayers as in the image above, since they cover the entire Greenhouse area.
Remember that, considering the Greenhouse's advantages (grow in any season), every space inside it is extremely valuable, so it's important that you place the Sprinklers as shown above so you don't lose blocks. Once you've completed the plantations, your Greenhouse will look something like this:
There are two ways to unlock the Greenhouse:
