Insulating your greenhouse
BEFORE you eagerly rip open your veg seed packets and start sowing for 2019, make sure you can provide for the seedlings. If you’re lucky enough to own a greenhouse, does it have electricity? Even if it does, you might not like the idea of cranking up the thermostat of your electric propagator while spring decides to make an appearance.
Insulating even part of the glasshouse is simple. Lash together a small frame using lengths of timber or bamboo canes; cable ties are perfect for this job. Cloak the structure in bubble plastic (you can alternatively buy special clips to attach the bubble plastic directly to the inside of your greenhouse frame). I would say that your seedlings will now be snug as the proverbial bug – but we don’t want any bugs in there!
