Wooden Coldframes


Yeoman Mini Greenhouse

The Yeoman Mini Greenhouse is designed to look good and be practical.  Part of the Yeoman range of Raised Beds, Cold Frames and Mini Greenhouses. There are three generously sized, height adjustable, sturdy shelves to take advantage of the large glass surface area. The shelves are all removable so that taller plants can be placed in its protective environment. The top lid has two long props for easy hands free access to the upper shelf as well as a small central prop to allow air to circulate.  The Yeoman Mini Greenhouse is constructed from British Grown Western Red Cedar or Scandinavian red pine, jointed and glued with high-quality waterproof adhesive. Cedar wood is lightweight and resistant to both cracking and moisture rot. The oils of this resilient wood guard against insect attack and decay and the distinctive aroma acts as a mild insect repellent.
The construction method used for Scandinavian red pine is the same however we finish the structure with a high quality preservative.
The Yeoman Mini-greenhouse is glazed with safety glass, all screws and hardware are solid brass.

mini-greenhouse plants

The base fertilizer contained  in all composts will be used up by the plants within about  eight weeks. This is because there  is less soil life than outside to create and release nutrients, and because  constant watering tends to
wash away any nutrients  that are present more quickly. Mini- Greenhouse  plants must therefore be provided with additional food. Use either the home-made  animal-manure  tea or a proprietary liquid seaweed  or animal-manure feed . I find seaweed ideal for most purposes  because  it contains  the full range of nutrients  needed  for healthy plant growth. Intervals between feeds will vary according to the crop. Always be sure to use fertilizers at the recommended strength and frequency;  overfeeding can do more damage  to plants than underfeeding. Generally,  plants that are expected  to grow and produce fruit at the same time - like tomatoes and cucumbers  are more demanding than most plants.

Automatic  watering systems 

An automatic watering system will save you a lot of time. There are many types available but from experience,  the simplest is  just as efficient as the most expensive. For plants in planters, put a sheet of plastic over the shelves and cover it with a length of absorbent material known  as a "capillary  mat".  If the mat is kept moist,  the plants  can take up water whenever  they need it.

          Plants that are grown inside rely on you for food and water, so you must be committed  to giving them constant attention. In the summer the plants will need a lot of water. In the early spring, however, the water from the tap is likely to be much too cold for tender
young seedlings.  To avoid damaging the plants, fill the watering can after watering  and leave it  so that the water has warmed up by watering  time the next day.
Delicate young plants and seedlings  must be sprayed  with water using a fine nozzle  to prevent damaging them. Use a watering can with a fine rose and with a spout long enough to reach  to the back of the shelves.
Always  water in the morning rather than late in the day. Watering "little and often" is not a good idea; most mini-greenhouse plants do better when they are given  a thorough soaking and then left for a while before the next watering.
