Greenhouse Equipment:

There is quite a lot of greenhouse equipment that is available on the market today. So where to start? Which ones are necessities and which ones are luxuries?

Greenhouse tools help to create, and maintain, the proper conditions for plants to grow in the greenhouse.

These tools help to monitor, and sustain, the proper environment in keeping the plants happy and healthy. All greenhouse supplies are meant to help make sure that the greenhouse growing experience is a good one.

Description of Greenhouse Equipment:

    Greenhouse Organization and storage:
  • Benches

  • Shelving

  • Hanging Baskets

This group of Greenhouse Tools helps in making sure that there is the max amount of work, and growing, space available in the greenhouse.

These supplies are not always needed many, growers simply set up the greenhouse over a plot of land and simply grow as they would traditionally in the ground, with the benefit of having the greenhouse shelter for their plants – this is a great application for a Hoop House.

    Cooling, Ventilating, and Humidifying
  • Shade Cloth

  • Air circulators
  • Shutter Fans and Shutters

  • Automatic vent openers

  • Cooling Mist and Timer Packages

  • Drip Irrigation

Ventilation is a key component in greenhouse gardening.

It is recommended to have proper greenhouse ventilation. Ventilation also helps to regulate the temperature. Misting and irrigation supplies help to cool the temperature, and water plants.

Watering the plants can be a daunting and time consuming task. There are many watering systems and supplies that can be used to greatly cut down the time, and even automate the process.

Rain Barrels are a great way to store water.

    Heating, lighting, and propagation:

  • Propane heater

  • Greenhouse Heaters

  • Thermostat

  • Minimum/Maximum Thermometer

  • Seeding Heat Mats

  • Greenhouse supplemental Lights

  • Timer plug ins

Lots of these accessories are considered necessities when controlling the temperature in a greenhouse.

This is something that needs to be monitored carefully. Drastic changes in temperature are not a wanted thing in Greenhouse Gardening, and can be very harmful to the plants.

To regulate the temperatures, pretty much automatically, a greenhouse heater, greenhouse thermostat and Greenhouse Thermometer are very highly recommended greenhouse equipment.

All of the greenhouse accessories listed above are designed to create a simpler growing experience.

Many will help with the automation of a greenhouse. Although, as much time as possible will want to be spent in working in your garden. The plants growing are alive. As many accessories that are out there the “set it, and forget it” mentality will definitely want to be avoided.

Careful monitoring of the growing system is a must.
