Grow the juiciest tomatoes in your own ACD® Prestige greenhouse

A greenhouse without tomatoes is like a pub without beer. In a greenhouse, the conditions are more than perfect for growing the most delicious varieties yourself.

CLEANING YOUR GREENHOUSE IN THE FALL – PART 2

Summer is over and fall has begun. It's time to clean up your hobby greenhouse and get it ready for winter. In two blogs I'm going to take you through how I clean up, clean and polish my greenhouse before winter sets in.

Resolutions

Harvesting, harvesting and more harvesting in the greenhouse

The month of August is all about harvesting in the vegetable garden and in this blog specifically the harvest from my hobby greenhouse. The first fruits are ripe, the sun is shining and that means: harvest it! And the more often you harvest, the more fruit your plants will produce. In other words: harvesting = more fruits.

The greenhouse at the end of August

Although some days still feel quite summery, autumn is already tangible. Especially when the alarm clock goes off. Since when is it still dark at seven o’clock? Also in the greenhouse you can feel that the sun has lost much of its power, the tomatoes ripen much less quickly and I can only harvest three […]

3 tips against dryness in the vegetable garden

2020 is the third year in a row that the Netherlands is experiencing an exceptional drought that is increasingly depleting its deep water resources. Any time a few raindrops fall from the sky, I am happy.

Shade cloth: A must have for your hobby greenhouse

I said it last time, but what an incredibly nice weather it is. Lots of sun, a nice temperature and evenings that are getting longer. With this amount of sunshine, a shade cloth is really a must.

How do you best treat your tomatoes?

I work in the greenhouse once a week; preferably in the morning I remove all the side-shoots and I pick the leaves that are withered or that take away too much light from the tomatoes. It is often too hot in the conservatory during the day, but there is another reason why I prefer to […]
