smoke bombs for greenhouse

It's always best to clean a greenhouse. A mild solution of bleach will do the job, then if you want you can use a sulphur candle as well. It's the start of spring so no real need for bubble wrap now, do that next autumn if you've got things to over winter.

Grass cuttings

Grass seed isn't that expensive emma. Leaving clippings in an area won't give you new grass, but it may improve the soil. If you want grass in the shaded area, buy seed suitable for shaded area's. It's widely available (amazon), and sow the area. Now is the perfect time to start and if done properly you could have a lovely grassy area by mid summer.

I want to add Jane Lane Nurseries off Amazon. Bought a total of 21 bare root perennials from them. The root systems were amazingly good and they are all growing away very strongly. I was buying most for some of my customers. Some were easy to split and take cuttings from. Very good quality although the range is small.

Yes lay a membrane before laying bark on top, which is suitable, and yes and nematodes are available and can be used.
