How to Add a Pop Color to a Small Greenhouse
No garden? No problem! These bright flowers thrive in small spaces.
The colorful flowers will add to the pleasure of your greenhouse, dramatically changing its appearance. Whatever their size, there are many bright flowers and foliage that thrive in small spaces.
From cool-season crops to beautiful orchids, you don't need a large greenhouse to successfully grow your favorite gardens. In fact, even those with a small porch or small garden greenhouse can reap the benefits.
To help you know where to start, here are some colorful flowers that are perfect for those with small greenhouses. Take a look at the tips below...
Plan Your Flowering Schedule
Getting started in your greenhouse is exciting. When you start planning and preparing, decide what colorful flowers you would like to plant. During the summer, consider planting tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and herbs, which you can then transfer abroad.
Don't forget bulbs like amaryllis and paperwhites. Simply plant the bulbs in pots six to eight weeks before you want the flowers. Also, for those in-between periods, African violets (Saintpaulia) and cape primroses (Streptocarpus) can be in bloom in a greenhouse practically all winter.
There are many advantages to having your own mini greenhouse. In addition to growing tasty produce, you can also get ahead by planting seeds. Colorful and fragrant orchids are among the easiest to grow. To ensure perfect flowering, make sure your greenhouse has high humidity levels, mild temperatures, and good air circulation.
When the flowers finally wilt, simply cut off the flower stem and let the plant rest for a few months while keeping the soil moist. As soon as a new flower stem appears, fertilize the plant and place it in a warm place until it blooms again.
You'll find dahlia in all shapes and sizes, including species like cacti, pompoms, peonies, and flower balls. Dahlias can be grown without a greenhouse, but having one will help when there is a risk of frost. If you plan to grow some this summer, remember to keep the soil moist as this will help them bloom profusely.
Dahlias, like most plants, respond to regular watering and feeding, although they also deal with neglect very well. You can grow dahlias from seed, although not the more select varieties that can be grown by planting 'tubers. Of course, for well-chosen varieties, you can also buy a starter plant and then keep the variety for decades thereafter; each plant multiplies every year.
Add Geraniums (pelargoniums)
Give your mini greenhouse some love by planting spectacular geraniums (pelargoniums). Easy to grow, almost anything can be propagated by cuttings, making them ideal for beginners. To grow them successfully, place them in moist but well-drained soil. Although they prefer heat and light, be careful not to overheat.
These severe conditions can stimulate the red mite. It is better to keep them well ventilated, even a little humid during the summer. In winter, dryness is safer, as your mold is not the cold that kills. Thorough cleaning of dead leaves helps keep them safe. Otherwise, they rarely cause problems, in fact, they are too easy.
