In The Greenhouse This June

Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm days.

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

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

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 appy shade paint to prevent your greenhouse from overheating.
