In order to keep your plants at their best, you will need to keep the atmosphere within your greenhouse healthy to avoid the risk of plant diseases. Gabriel Ash offers a range of high quality greenhouses that are designed to provide your plants with everything they need to remain healthy. The Western Red cedar greenhouse is rot resistant, providing you with a longer lasting greenhouse that will keep your plants and garden healthy.
Cleaning your greenhouse out regularly will help to reduce the risk of plant diseases. A cluttered greenhouse is more likely to attract pests and may result in fungal diseases, which will damage your plants. It is vital that you keep your greenhouse free of clutter and organised. Throwing out any dead plants or leaves and sweeping your greenhouse regularly will help to keep pests at bay and reduce the risk of plant diseases.
Making sure that your greenhouse is well ventilated will also help to reduce the risk of plant disease. You can control the humidity within your greenhouse by installing extra ventilation or a fan. This will help to provide a much healthier atmosphere for your plants. You can also add slatted staging to provide your plants with extra ventilation and to keep your greenhouse tidy and free of clutter.
Fungicides will also help to tackle fungal diseases. However, you may wish to consider opting for organic fungicides as ordinary fungicides may contain chemicals that are harmful to plants. There is a selection of organic sprays available that will help you to get rid of plant disease without causing extra damage to your plants.
Growing your plants organically will help to provide a general healthier atmosphere within your greenhouse. Growing your own fruit and vegetables organically will not only help to keep your greenhouse healthy but will also provide you with many benefits. Organic gardening will keep your greenhouse and plants free of chemicals and enable you to grow a selection of nutritious fruit and vegetables.
