greenhouse shading

Postby Diane » Thu Jun 07, 2018 9:18 am

Anyone put the shading on yet? I usually use that spray on white stuff - just on a couple of sides. Is it too soon?

hi Diane

Is the sun shining bright some days, does the temperature in the greenhouse get extreme some days.

Then no its not too early.


Temperature in greenhouse the other was just under 100.
I also use the white shading, but only do the roof with a roller.

Wash off well at end of season

Mine gets dappled shade from my Silver Birch tree from around 11 till 1, works a treat.

Thank you Pa Snip - that's help me to decide. It was really blazing hot in there yesterday - which got me thinking. Today it's pouring with rain!. However, I shall be getting the white stuff out ready for the return of summer (hopefully tomorrow).

Damp the greenhouse floor down regularly as well.

I'm not complaining even though I'm spending one and half hours every day waving a hosepipe around
