Greenhouse shading

Post by TheOzricle »

With the greenhouse almost finished(I think tomorrow is the day) I presume shading is going to be a good idea to get the plants used to direct sunlight. Can I have a few experiences of what people have used and what would be easiest. I have been looking at the paint on stuff. Is it as easy to remove as the manufacturers say. Or is it pain to remove. I also have a large roll of bubble wrap I acquired which could be an option I guess. What is everyone used to?

I'm sure nick uses the paint on stuff. Maybe he can help you. Mine were brought up on a sunny window sill so have been fine

id imagine a diluted (more than recommended) paint on stuff would be good, with it being diluted it just just ccoome off with a good scrub,failing that a fish tank scraper would do the trick on subburn bits....

I got some green mesh for my dad's greenhouse last year to provide a bit of shade. Thankfully it stops bullets too.

I find the day you apply the paint on stuff, the sun goes in and doesn't re-appear! I use netting on a roller so I can pull it down the odd time the sun comes out.
