What grows well in a hot greenhouse?

One great strategy is to use the greenhouse primarily for heat-tolerant crops like tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and basil. While shade cloth and heat-storage systems like a Ground to Air Heat Transfer (GAHT™) system can help control greenhouse temperatures, it is still a warm spot in the garden.

How do you keep a greenhouse from overheating?

Ventilation, courtesy of roof vents, side vents (usually louvered) and the greenhouse door can create the necessary movement of air to cool down overheated plants. As a very approximate rule of thumb, an area of roof vents equivalent to one fifth of the floor area will provide a complete air change every two minutes.

Can you air condition a greenhouse?

The tubes, distributed throughout the whole surface of the greenhouse, transport water at an average temperature of 80 degrees centigrade. Thus optimum air-conditioning for greenhouses is achieved, with the result that the plants grow as in the natural production period.

How warm is a greenhouse in winter?

Generally in winter, there are 5-6 solid hours of sunlight a day. With proper insulation, greenhouses can remain 30 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the air outside. This means that you can have a productive greenhouse in the winter down to -17 degrees Fahrenheit before the air in your greenhouse reaches the frost zone.
