Many of us are interested in farming. Working on a farm and greenhouse with open air is just a dream come true for most of us. But many people don’t know how to do effective farming or greenhouse for that matter.
But worry not! we are here for your rescue. We been working on green house pa for many years.
So here is all the important information you should know before you start working in field.
So when to use a greenhouse?
A effective greenhouse can be in use for most of the year. Heated greenhouses is productive for nearly an year-round use, but it’s very rarely cost effective.
But if you want to go with it, then you should follow below schedule.
From late winter to early spring
- Sow hardy plants such as celeriac, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, early lettuce, leeks peas and onions for planting out when the warmer weather arrives. A heated propagator will help germination.
- In heated greenhouses, peppers, tomatoes and other tender plants can be sown early in a propagator.
- Sow fast-growing tender plants such as cucumbers,pumpkins and squashes, French beans, courgettes, sweet corn and melons so they are ready for planting in their final positions under glass in late spring or outside in early summer. A heated propagator will help germination.
- Buy ready-grown tomato and pepper plants for introducing to unheated greenhouses.
From late spring to early summer
- Now plants like summer greenhouse plants are into their final positions indoors
- Harden off and plant out young plants of outdoor crops once their frost has passed
- Now harvest summer crops
- Remove spent melon, French bean or cucumber crops
- You can replace them by later sown plants
- Sow parsley, french beans and calabrese outside for bringing in when summer crops have finished
- If space allows, baby carrots, spicy salad leaves and sow lettuces indoors to make use of the autumn sun and provide late harvests
- Plant fresh potatoes for Christmas crops in heated greenhouses
- Completely cut down spent summer crops
- Plant parsley, french beans and calabrese seedling to mature indoors
- Sow peas and broad beans to over-winter and be planted out once clay soils are more manageable in early in spring
- Sow pea and hardy lettuces cultivars shoots to be harvested indoors in spring
But that’s not all about farm and greenhouse. While carrying out plantation, you should be watch out for diseases like damping off, grey mould and powdery mildew. Commons pests under glass include glasshouse whitefly, glasshouse red spider mite and glasshouse leafhoppers.
