    Setting up a greenhouse

    I've got a 6ft by 8ft greenhouse on the way!

    Poly-Tex Snap & Grow 6' x 8' Hobby Greenhouse - Silver - BJ's Wholesale Club

    I'M SO EXCITED! It is however my first greenhouse. I have backyard gardened for a while. Any tips for transitioning?

    The web page don't work..

    Green houses are wonderful for starting seeds, you can also keep them longer durring the winter times. :)

    By transitioning do you mean acclimating to full sun and being planted?

    Going from a regular garden to a greenhouse. Most of my garden this year is going to be out of buckets, so I'll be able to move them outside or inside the greenhouse as I please. I've never had a greenhouse before and I was wondering, how do I get bees inside to pollinate? Do I just leave the door open in the AM?

    I'm no help then. I've never grown a garden in a greenhouse. Though I have to say I wish I could. Late frosts and droughts have kicked my butt a few times.

    You can polinate yourself with out bees-- depending on what you're planting.


    What some of the farmers do is-- take a q-tip; rub inside the male flower, then rub the inside of the female flower, then put cheesecloth over the female flower so nothing else can cross polinate the female flower.. they do this when the female flowers first open.

    Hmm I'll have to read about that. I don't think I want to pollinate all the cherry tomatoes on my own though...

    There will be times when you need to leave the door and windows opened-- you don't want it getting too muggy or too hot inside the greenhouse-- they might could get polinated then?

    Other insects polinate flowers-- like butterflies.. :)

    How about a feather duster for pollination?
