Solar Greenhouses Australia

Solar Greenhouses… Have you heard about this type of greenhouse? Well if not, it might prove to be a great investment if you wanted to take advantage of the vast amount of sunlight shining in your area. This greenhouse has the capability of trapping and storing thermal energy from the sun.  Solar greenhouses are constructed differently, as they may be in gabled or arched structures, cold frames or even subterranean pits. Active and passive – these are two types of solar greenhouses. Passive type of solar greenhouses are able to trap and store thermal energy by glazing, then converting it into heat and limiting the amount that is being released outside. While much of the absorbing is done by the plants living in this type of solar greenhouse, the materials inside it like the soil, water and rock are also absorbing heat that in turn will be used once the temperature falls. This will reduce heating costs in a greenhouse, except for the really cold winter months that this amount of heating is not enough to keep the plants healthy. Active solar greenhouses on the other hand require supplemental energy on the top of what passive solar greenhouses use to trap and store thermal energy. Aside from active and passive solar greenhouses, sun-pit greenhouses offer a more economical alternative to keep your greenhouse heated.  This type of greenhouse uses the […]

The cost is much more than what you were expecting, so you may need to look through ads from newspapers and find a second hand greenhouse for sale. There may be some people or gardeners willing to sell some kind of greenhouse that they are no longer interested in using, but more importantly, can accommodate a larger number of plants. This is what we did when we had our first greenhouse. Our first greenhouse measured 10 by 8, dissembled and ready for pick up costing just about $81.50. It took me a while to build it because I was not around when my wife and my daughter bought it and brought it to our plot. Finding the Right Place for the Greenhouse Many people are not aware of the importance of finding the right place for building the base of your greenhouse. This should be the very first thing that anyone should do. The position of your greenhouse base should not be under a tree or any large building that shades the light of the sun. It should also provide enough space that you can move around it and have a front door that can even accommodate a wheelbarrow coming in and out of […]

The Value of Greenhouse Position

People should be aware that the purpose of a greenhouse is to provide an environment of warm and light where healthy plants can grow faster so a Greenhouse position makes all the difference. A greenhouse helps gardeners in raising tender plants and seedlings all year round. These plants have a low percentage of surviving when allowed to grow outdoors, and the greenhouse is the only place that can provide the needed environment their growth requires. Thus, the greenhouse is a shelter for plants that provides growth opportunity. However, a greenhouse needs proper positioning and shelter from the worst of nature. You have to establish your greenhouse in a place where rays of the sun can provide light all day long. This prerequisite of a greenhouse is quite difficult to maintain, more particularly when the greenhouse position is attached to a specific wall of the main house, which provides a lot of shade in the garden.
