Re­move snow from the roof

Gardeners' World - - Greenhouse -

Even a light cov­er­ing of snow on the green­house roof re­duces the light get­ting to your plants in­side. If the snow per­sists the struc­ture also has to stand the weight and when it begins to thaw, there will be slip­page and the dan­ger of a big dump of snow onto what­ever is near the out­side of the house. Brush the snow off daily with a long-han­dled broom and give it a fi­nal clean with a win­dow clean­ing blade when the snow is over.

En­sure your foot­ing is firm be­fore tack­ling snow on a roof
