What's the best way to shade a greenhouse?

Posted: 24/10/2013 at 21:19

I know the winter is here now, but last summer I was recording temperatures up to 52C in my greenhouse, Death Valley!. It's a new greenhouse with auto vents and I do leave the door open and damp down but it doesn't seem to really lower the temperature. Any other shading from the inside ideas guys? It is a Hartley greenhouse if that helps. I shall be growing cacti next year is so.


Talkback: How to take lavender cuttings

Posted: 03/08/2013 at 19:34

Suggest using the soft wood cutting technique, then leaving them around 8 weeks  in a storageage  type see thru box with a lid that you can check on regularly. Water moderately leave in a cool shady place outside, and then pull one gently and if you feel a resistance it may have rooted. The secret may be to take loads so that one or two can be sacrificed. Suggest gritty well driaining  compost and do not overwater. Would be interested to hear any success.
