Does anyone out there do this in thier greenhouses?? What information do I need to know to get started? Trying to find different projects to have in the building. Thanks!!!
I do. We have a culinary arts program at my school and they love having fresh ingredients to work with. I usually try to stick with herbs and veggies that are pretty easy to get to germinate such as lettuce, basil, parsley, and collards. I wait to start them until the heat in my greenhouse is running pernanently for the winter, so that they have a consistent temperature to grow. My students plant the seeds in flats with 36 packs and put 3-4 seeds per pack to increase the chances of germination because of the limted light and it's exposure during the winter months. We place clear humidity domes over the flasts until the seeds germinate and the seedlings are about an inch high. This seems to work well and gives the students a greenhouse growing project during the winter months. Hope this helps!
I do not have a greenhouse at my school, but I do have a few sets of growlights and one of them has a humidity tent on it. Last year, we started some tomato and pepper plants some in potting soil, some hydroponically, some inside the humidity tent, some outside, etc. Actually, we started them probably earlier than we should have to use them in the spring plants, but we did plant them and had a few teachers say they would take them and try them and gave us a donation and everyone got some sort of product in the end. Maybe this helps give you an idea for some things to try in the greenhouse!
Thanks for help! Some good info to get started on. Still taking any suggestions or different ideas that I can try!! Thanks!!!
