In The Greenhouse This June

Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm days.

Check plants in greenhouse daily and water them if the soil is dry.

Damp down your greenhouse on hot days to increase humidity and deter red spider mites.

Sow herbs in pots to grow in your greenhouse, such as coriander, parsley and basil.

Treat pots with vine weevil control if this pest has been a problem in the past, as larvae become active this month.

Top Tip:

Use blinds or apply shade paint to prevent your greenhouse from overheating. Remember to open vents and doors on warm days.
