Benefits Of Greenhouse Gardening

Greenhouse gardening is no different from traditional gardening. Maybe the only thing that differentiates them is that in greenhouse gardening, plants are cultivated in a closed structure rather than traditional gardening’s open spaces. It has attracted a lot of attention from individuals who have wanted to garden for a long time, but are afraid to jump into it because of several factors that are preventing them, like severe weather conditions during cold months or summer. Plant anything Since greenhouses are not affected by the conditions outside it, you are given a wide variety of choices in terms of what you can plant.

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 […]

Choosing the Best Place for your Greenhouse for Plants

Your greenhouse is an auxiliary attraction in your backyard or a decorative attachment to your beautiful house. It is so easy to plan the construction of your greenhouse, but there are things you should consider when you decide to build one. Proper position of your greenhouse If you have the luxury to manage a big greenhouse, see to it that the greenhouse ridge runs east to west, while allowing the length of the greenhouse to face the southward sun. Availing the maximum utilisation of the sun on the south-facing aspect gives the assurance that the greenhouse would stay warmer, when compared to those who did not use this system. You can also choose to use blinds for your greenhouse as part of your shading system. The method is very simple for a wooden greenhouse and applies to only one side. If you are considering a vine house or a lean-to greenhouse, the ideal wall is facing the south. Greenhouse Base is Level and Square The important thing about building-up your greenhouse is that its base must be level and square. We recommend that you lay your greenhouse base on a concrete plinth and over it a single course of brick. This will give your greenhouse a lift without any flash but will increase its longevity.

How to fit your Greenhouse with Shelves, Stages, Benches and Watering System

Maximizing the Utility of your Greenhouse Shelving – One of the best things that you can do to maximize the utility of your greenhouse is the provision of a wider space where you can move, particularly in the floor area. You also need to think about height inside your greenhouse. When it has high eaves, it would be more useful in fixing shelves from the roof supports. The height of the roof would also provide good heating conditions for your plants as it would keep them warmer, which is better than lowering the roof. When installing shelves in an aluminium greenhouse, you need to buy brackets that you can fix to the roof and to the walls. You can either assemble it yourself or purchase aluminium greenhouse shelves for your purpose. Suggested size would be 10 inches for a seed tray. You can also purchase pre-cut size watering mats that soaks a lot of water and can provide sufficient amount of water for your plants. When possible, we would suggest fixed shelving which works well for a range of staging and fixed shelving. It would also include a flash potting bench and side table.

Buying and rebuilding a Second-hand Greenhouse

Nowadays, a good quality greenhouse would cost you from anywhere between $800 and $1600. These amounts can take a big chunk out of your meagre budget. 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 […]

Choosing The Type Of Flooring For Your Greenhouse

A first-time greenhouse builder may not realise this, but the type of flooring you will be using should be one of your most important considerations. Flooring has a significant effect on what you grow. It serves as the foundation for your greenhouse. Make sure it suits your growing needs. These are some of the things you should take into account when you consider the type of flooring you will have for your greenhouse. *How often do you intend to use your greenhouse? If you intend to use your greenhouse on a daily basis, you will need durable flooring. The key is choosing a solution that is easy to maintain, one that won’t need much cleaning daily. A fully concreted floor may not be the perfect flooring type. The most common flooring solution is concrete slabs laid on sand. It may look basic, but it provides a good foundation for your greenhouse. *How do you intend to use your greenhouse? If you intend to use your greenhouse primarily for planting, you will need areas of soil to grow your plants. If you intend to use it as a nursery, you will need a solid flooring where you can put the pots you will be using for propagation. All types of flooring have basic functions, but some greenhouse owners choose some types for aesthetic purposes.  Large greenhouses owned by well-to-do people may […]
