Eternal Sunshine of the spotless greenhouse

Post  Tony on Mon Dec 05, 2011 5:41 pm

After the disaster of last years winter I am taking even more precautions to ensure that my trees get through what looks like another shockingly cold dark winter ahead of us in the UK. I have installed a single 600 watt duel spectrum lamp... the lights come on a 6.00 off at 8.30 then on again at 15.30 off at 18.00 (giving 12 hours of continuous 'daylight') Along with my well established heating bed and frost controlled fan heater I am ready... bring on your worst Jack Frost.





Now where is that police helicopter Twisted Evil

nice one Tony - lecky wont be too bad, 5hrs @ 600w, 3kw per day -40p ish, just over £12 a month to ensure the trees remain strong -bargain.

this is going to be the way forward for our better bonsai in winter - i have a 400w metal halide grow lamp rigged up ready for the trees that break dormancy down here too early then get battered by late frosts.

looks great, dont worry if a police helicopter hovers over the house - you're innocent!! Laughing

After they have smashed your door down and rampaged through your house you'll be innocent. Very Happy
