However, most current was di Vidir the greenhouse into sections that had different temperatures, adapted to each ripening season.
    After the war disappeared specialists specialists vine, and very few continued to cultivate vineyards in the greenhouse.Recently, however, interest in this subject has increased, and many amateur gardeners have found that even small deros winters, the vines can grow over other plants, ceiling, and can get a good crop of grapes .
