l am in the process of building my base for my new green house 6 foot x 10 foot. l have read in a book that a good ldea is to put sheets of styrofoam around the outside frame of the greenhouse 2 foot deep to keep the cold soil coming into the soil in the greenhouse. Is this safe to do? can or would any chemicals leach from the styrofoam.
I have a polytunnell 25' x 14' approx with one entrance door. Plants tend to wilt from the heat on warm days even though the door is left open. Do I need a second opening at the opposite end of the polytunnell for air to circulate or can I do anything else to remedy this problem. Plants are watered every evening after sun down.
I have a tunnel and i want to protect my geraniums and fuchias,is covering them with fleece enough at night? And do i remove it during the day?
weather forecast is dire for the weekend. ive got a 8X6 unheated greenhouse. its full of scented pelagoniums, chillies, mysotidiums, etc. all fairly fragile. would you recommend lighting a few candles in the evenings to heat it? (no electricity available). alternatively i could bring everything indoors but as ive about 60 pots.........id rather not.
Will a solar pump work inside a polytunnel?
What is the best type of heating I should think about in getting for my greenhouse so i can have a constant heat in cold weather many thanks
