Shade house - The ultimate solution
With a quality shade house in place, regardless it is small or large, there are so many benefits associated with it (See below). It is a valuable asset to have when it comes to growing plants and protecting them properly.
What is a shade house?
A shade house is a structure which usually consists of a metal frame that supports shade cloth - a type of screen that provides some passive environmental control e.g. shading the plants from excessive sunlight and wind.
Which plants need to be grown in a shade house?
Research has proven that optimal shading conditions effect significantly the growth aspect for many species of plants.
Shade houses are ideal for growing:
- Fruits and vegetables: eg. tomatoes
- Tree seedlings
- Hydroponic produce
- Shade loving (cut) flowers: ferns, azaleas and orchids
- Rainforest plants: gingers, monstera, philodendrons and cunjevois
- Frost/Heat sensitive plants: fuchsias, impatiens and begonias
- Other nursery plants that need to harden off
Why use a shade house?
A shade house is important in plant production for gaining maximum growth, allowing plants time to acclimatize to outdoor conditions and "harden off". There are a number of benefits in using a shade house:
- Protect plants from wind, hail and pests
- Protect plants from extreme hot weather
- Protect plants which are cold or frost sensitive over winter
- Propagate new plants
- Grow tropical plants in cooler climates
- Increase yields and quality. The result of a healthier root system
- Improve space: Using multi-tier/layer shelves in a shade house
- Grow vegetables, cut flowers or berry fruits out of season, faster than might be achieved outside.
