Climate in the greenhouse - 4 tips

Tip 1 - Heating system
If your greenhouse hibernates plants or you grow new plants very early in the year, then your greenhouse should have a frost guard (available here), better yet an integrated heating system. Ideally, special greenhouse heaters should be automatically controllable via a thermostat, such as e.g. Convection heating systems for greenhouses, which can achieve even temperatures in the greenhouse.

Less suitable are petroleum heaters that spread uneven heat in the greenhouse. Although they are often offered as a heating system for greenhouses.

Tip 2 - Shading
The shading of a greenhouse is urgently necessary, especially in intensive sunlight, so that the plants inside not burn, Suitable for this purpose are either blinds and / or blinds, which can be mounted on the inside or outside with special mounting systems. You can also roll up bast mats or plastic mats, or a garden fleece for shading along the roof surfaces.

Tip 3 - Ventilation

It is even better if you also integrate windows or skylights in the greenhouse, which you can easily put in a tilted state. Alternatively, you can also install a special greenhouse fan (available here) in one of the outer walls (if possible in gable height).
