Preparing Your Greenhouse For Spring

By Gabriel Ash

There are a number of steps that you can take to prepare your greenhouse for the spring. With winter drawing to a close, spring is the perfect time to fill your greenhouse with a selection of beautiful bright plants or even your own fruit and vegetables.

To prepare your greenhouse for spring, you will need to create an atmosphere that is just right for any spring plants that you are planning to grow. Marigolds and petunias are popular choices for spring, but it is important that you provide them with the care that they require in order to thrive during this season.

As spring approaches, you will need to clear out your greenhouse in order to provide plenty of space for new plants. Removing any dead leftover plants and making sure the panes of glass on your greenhouse are clean will help to provide a better atmosphere for your spring plants. Many spring plants, such as marigolds, require plenty of sunlight in order to thrive, so you will need to clean the glass thoroughly to allow your plants full access to sunlight.

As the weather grows warmer, your plants will require plenty of watering. Keeping useful tools nearby, such as a watering can, which you will need for the spring season, will help you to easily care for your plants. Removing any old seed trays and pots will help to create more space for small garden tools, as well as more room for a selection of spring plants.

During spring, you may encounter problems with pests. Slugs are common visitors during spring and will damage your plants if not kept at bay. To reduce the risk of pesky insects during spring, remove any old pots and avoid cluttering your greenhouse. If you opt for insect repellent, use organic sprays or research organic methods of removal. Using organic pest removal methods will help to keep the atmosphere of your greenhouse healthy for the spring season.
