It’s the end of your growing season or the end of the school year. You won’t be using the greenhouse for a few months but can you “shut down” a greenhouse? We believe that a greenhouse is more than a building. It is a growing machine and the heart of your business.
There are many checklists and how-to’s written about greenhouse maintenance. More often than not they are generic and mundane. Most lists are geared towards someone having the ideal time of year to grab a check list and do a head to toe walk-through of the greenhouse. This may be wanted, it may even be possible but it usually ends up on the back burner. The approach for this “maintenance” article is to not only explain what needs maintenance at the greenhouse but also what parts and pieces are typically needed and in a format that is easy to reference when the time comes.
