Bubble wrap
« on: May 07, 2012, 10:21 »
As most of the cold weather has past and am using a electric fan heater at night in a 6x4 greenhouse, do you think i should remove the bubble wrap to let more light in.
I am not worred about the waste as i ordered a large roll of the stuff.
I am home all day to open and close window and the door.

I have made a complete jersey (inside) of bubblewrap for my glasshouse. I made it so that I can roll it up during the summer (with bamboo sticks attached to the bottom, which also helps to make the bubblewrap hang nicely) and let it down in winter/colder days again. It is working very well and my seedlings are looking super. I am not using any heating at all.  :D

I thought that if you left it up it can help to reduce the sunshine getting through as much and reduce leaf burn?

Do you guys use bubble wrap only in glass houses or in poly houses too?
