Greenhouse Terms to Know

Building a greenhouse for your garden will ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers for your home. However, as with any first time venture into gardening and horticulture, the terminology can be overwhelming. There are many commercial markets to supply a greenhouse, but before you start buying materials you must understand how a greenhouse works. Below are some common popular terms that are associated with greenhouses that can help a beginner.

  • Glaze – This term is used for the covering of a greenhouse. Since a greenhouse is traditionally heated by solar energy, the glaze needs to be a material the sunlight can pass through. Popular types of glazes are glass, polycarbonate (PVC), fiberglass and acrylics. The plastic types of glazes, such as PVC, usually have a shorter lifetime, between ten to twenty years. Glass does last longer unless you live in an area that receives a good deal of hail, in which case the glass can become easily damaged.
  • Thermal Mass – In greenhouse terminology this refers to the ability of the greenhouse to keep the plants warm at night. Many greenhouses use large buckets of water, which retain solar heat quite well, to keep the plants warm at night.
  • Misters – Another problem greenhouses could have is too much heat, as once the temperatures rise of 95 degrees Fahrenheit they have trouble growing. A mister is a system that periodically sprays mist into the greenhouse, keeping it cooler and providing a comfortable home for your plants.
  • Fertilizers – Additives that can help a plant grow. They can be organic, such as manure, or they can be chemically manufactured. There are many commercial stores that sell fertilizers.
