Greenhouses and other glass protection
- Fix an electricity supply in your greenhouse to provide you power and light for propagating units and watering systems.
- Eliminate automatic window openings in the winter, as dense frosts can harm the liquid tanks which activate them. You can also visit http://www.climatecontrol.com/fertigation-manager/ to know about greenhouse fertigation systems.
- Find greenhouses where they will get lots of sunlight in spring and winter, and at which you can access to them without becoming muddy feet.
- Grow a pot of basil on your own greenhouse to repel whitefly. They do not enjoy the odor.
- Maintain your greenhouse warm in the winter and save on heating bills by lining it with bubble plastic. The bubbles must be contrary to the glass to form a good layer of the atmosphere.
- Make fast cloches using two sheets of four and glass clothing pegs. Place two pegs on every piece of glass lean the sheets of glass and place a rubber band on every set of pins to hold them together.
- Fix a very clear polythene curtain to different plants which require different growing conditions like light and dry for berries or moist and unethical for cucumbers.
- Water your own greenhouse in the daytime. Evening watering leaves moist states overnight that promote red spider mite.
- Grow vegetable plants in grow bags or bathtubs instead of from the boundary soil, to prevent a build-up of pests and diseases.
