Greenhouse Gardening Tips

Successful Bloom Show

Really enjoyed the Bloom Show.  Apart from the great reaction to the Glasshouses and Polytunnels we had on display on our stand, the award winning Growhouse (Western Red Cedar Glasshouse) which we built in an award winning Garden generated a huge amount of enquiries.  It was also wonderful to meet so many of our customers who stopped in to say hello.  I find it is a very well run show with good facilities which helps to make attending and visiting a pleasurable experience.  So put the date in your diary for next year everyone!

Cleaning your Polytunnel

Polytunnel’s should be cleaned at least once a year, maybe more if your Polytunnel is nearer trees as it will probably have algae forming on the outside and debris from the trees falling onto it.  There are different ways in which to clean your tunnel.  Here are a few helpful tips :-

If you get a bucket of warm water and add a small drop of washing up liquid, you will then be able to use a soft brush to clean the tunnel, for the bits you cannot reach get an old bed sheet and with a person each side of the tunnel gently go along the tunnel.  Be careful not to do anything that will scratch the cover as this will reduce the light transparency.

The newest arrival at our Display area is this 6ft x 12ft lean-to Greenhouse from Eden Greenhouses.  It has a lovely green powder coated frame.  Remember powder coating not only looks good but it also protects the aluminium from discolouring and tarnishing.  The glass is full length toughened glass which we recommend as it is much safer than horticultural glass and nicer to look at than polycarbonate.  This Greenhouse is fantastic value being only 1523 euro delivered in kit form for self assembly.
 
 

Spring Is Coming

“Now crocuses come smiling through
Grey February’s fog and mist
gold like the sun, deep lilac too
Defying winter’s icy kiss.”

By David Squire

 This month there are signs of the approaching spring. Although the weather still fluctuates temperature wise, spring is coming. Bulbs are appearing and birds and wildlife waking up as light levels and temperatures increase. Before heading out to enjoy the oncoming spring remember there’s plenty to do indoors this month, all in preparation for the season ahead.

  • Place a heating mat under your seed trays and begin planting your seeds indoors. Keeping the soil warm will assist with faster germination and plants will develop a stronger root system
  • Start feeding your houseplants again once they begin to show signs of new growth
  • Prune conservatory climbers

This are just a few tips to get you started. Remember also this is a great time of year to check your Polytunnel/Glasshouse for repair’s that need to be carried out before the spring season. For replacement glass or polythene or advice on the right thing to do, feel free to contact us via www.polydome.ie
