Fumigating a greenhouse
« on: November 19, 2012, 06:38 »
Ive finally cleared the larger of the two greenhouses I have (10ft X 6ft) and now want to fumigate it.
My question is this......
I've dug out the top 4" of soil (apologies I still work in imperial measurements) and have new soil (compost/manure) mix ready to replace it, but do I put this in before I fumigate with a sulphur candle or after?
I will be cleaning the glass with Citrox this morning and then fumigating later today.
Thanks for any advice.
I have my own cement mixer and not afraid to use it!!

It makes sense to me to fumigate the new soil as well, so I'd put it in before lighting the candle  :)

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

Ok will do.
This year the greenhouses seem to have been really badly affected by green algae or what ever it is. Might have been because it was so cold and damp and the automatic vents didn't open much until the weather warmed up...... By which time the nights were getting cold!!
