Cleaning the greenhouse
« on: October 19, 2008, 11:15 »
I'm approaching the stage where my greenhouse is almost empty and I am looking at preparing it for the winter.

I have grown tomatoes and cucmbers fairly successfully this year apart from some powdery mildew. What I would like to know is the best way of cleaning it to avoid problems next year.

I have seen these sulpher candles you can buy in a small tin - are these any good or would something like jeyes fluid be better?

Any advice would be useful. :)

I always use Jeyes fluid.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Doesn't the sulphur candle just kill any bugs?  so you'd still want something to clean the greenhouse?

I use Jeyes too, but I did get a bottle of Armillatox last year to do the polytunnel as you just spray it on and leave it, got most of the greeny tinge off the polythene!!!
