7 Tips to Maintain Your Greenhouse as New

Here are 7 of my top tips for maintaining a greenhouse. These will ensure your greenhouse stays in good condition and looking like new for years to come.

1. Once a year move out the contents, brush and wash down and disinfect the inside of the greenhouse. This includes any separate staging or benches. This will help to keep your greenhouse free from disease, mold, grime and will ensure that there are no pests hiding inside. 

2. Check for and replace any cracked or broken glass. After any adverse weather such as high winds, always check and secure your greenhouse.

3. For wooden greenhouses, brush down and treat the outside of the greenhouse with a suitable stain/wood protector every 2 years. This will help protect and prolong the life of the wood.  The inside of the greenhouse will need treating less often as it is protected from the weather. If you open your door during the Summer you will need to treat the inside of the door as you would the outside of the greenhouse.

4. Keep the floor clear of debris and sweep regularly.

5. Avoid storing pots and unnecessary equipment in the greenhouse, as this give pests and insects a place to hide and damp to collect over winter.

6. Check the greenhouse auto opening windows as functioning correctly. Replace any that are not working, Rocburn Limited supply auto openers for greenhouses. Come Summer it is essential to have good ventilation through the greenhouse, this will prevent excess build up of heat and allow an entry and exit point for bees and butterflies. 

7. If you have separate staging or benches inside the greenhouse, ensure this it sturdy and tighten any screws or nuts and bolts.
