Garden Shading

Shading is important when growing plants in a greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory, especially during the summer months. Although you need to ensure adequate ventilation is provided, ventilation alone - especially from mid-spring through until early autumn - will be insufficient and you will need to provide your plants with some form of shading. However, care needs to be taken when providing shading - shading limits the amount of light that your plants receive and light is essential for healthy plant growth - so only provide the minimum amount of shading to help reduce greenhouse temperatures.

When providing shade consider the following:

External shading is more effective than internal shading. By fixing shading to the outside of a greenhouse you will have the maximum cooling effect as you are preventing the sun's rays from passing through the glass. Internal shading is less effective as the sun's rays pass through the glass generating heat within the greenhouse. However, internal shading is better than no shading.

Shade netting versus Shading Paints. Shade netting can be fixed to the inside or outside of a greenhouse and is an effective, cost effective way to provide plants with shade. The alternative is to use a paint on shading - modern shade paints such as Nixol will become translucent when wet so are a good way of providing shade. You will, however, need to rub the shading off when it's no longer required - which will take longer than removing shade netting.

Greenhouse Shade Blind
SPECIAL OFFER - Money Saving Pack Available

These internal Greenhouse Blinds will protect your plants by shading them from strong sunlight which would scorch the leaves, damaging the plants and inhibiting strong growth. These shade blinds will also help to combat heat build up within a greenhouse.
These blinds are designed to fit in one section of a standard greenhouse with approximate 2ft spacing's between glazing bars, although the fittings in the ends of each tubular tensioning rail are adjustable to cater for slight variations in glazing bar spacing's. The blinds are 1.6m (63") long, so depending on the width of your greenhouse, these shade blinds will do the roof and come so far down the wall, on one side of you greenhouse. Multiple blinds sit easily side by side to fill any length of greenhouse.
The blinds come with brackets that simply bolt into the channel within the glazing bars of your greenhouse and then the horizontal tensioning rails just slot into place, this means once the brackets are in place the blinds can be quickly and easily put up and taken down as and when required. This simple installation method also means there are never ending installation possibilities allowing these greenhouse blinds to cater for nearly all types of greenhouse.
