Picture of Greenhouse Project
Hello everyone

 me and my dad decided to build a small , 4 meter X 80 cm Greenhouse up against the wall of our house.

it took us something like two weeks of hard work at the weekends ,but as you will see , it paid off eventually.

hope you enjoy !

The Jiffy Pallets  were out first attempt in growing some vegetables .

we are amateurs , we had no experience at the beginning , but during time, we learned how to grow it correctly


my advice to you is , read a lot before you start growing


Step 6: Lettuce and other growing

After we grew the Jiffy Pallets , we had to move them to a bigger planter in order for them to grow.

we started with planters of 1 Liter and moved to 7 Liter at the end

What is your average day/night temperature there and was this unit used year round or just for certain seasons? For winter plant maintenance indoors, but in an unheated room, I've used a metal utility, shop-style, shelf [open wire shelving on four round steel legs from Lowes or WalMart], put 4 mil clear vinyl on each side [separate pieces so they could roll or fold up to tend the plants] and hung fluorescent and incandescent lights under each shelf to illuminate the plants below. But I like your project for a larger-scale structure and creating more growing area. Nice work!

וואו !
ממש חלום !

אפשר לשאול כמה העלות של הפרוייקט בערך ?
ומה השיקולים על מנת להוזיל אותו ? (ניילון במקום הפרספקס אולי ?)
ואגב, יש המלצות לגבי הגידולים בלחות ת"א והטמפרטורות הקיצוניות בקיץ ?

תודה !
עמוס.
