New greenhouse

I have a new 12' by 15' by 10' tall greenhouse. Can you give basic maintenance tips already I have green slime on the patio slabs supporting the frame. I will sow in the soil and will have pots also. I intend to grow a few vines but I wonder is it worth having two or three and will I be able to grow anything underneath them. Is a weeping hose suitable to water with? 290120171, Askeaton, Co Limerick Posted: 29/01/2017

The current Jan/Feb 2017 issue of The Irish Garden has an extensive article on what can be grown in a greenhouse. 

It is not much space for more than one grapevine unless you keep them small. And yes it can be shady under vine foliage.

A seep hose can be useful for permanent plants in the soil. But hose-watering, or with watering can, as needed is more adaptable. For instance, you can damp down the floor on hot days.
