The Advantage of Raised Bed Gardening in a
Raised Bed Garden Greenhouse:
In traditional gardens, soil compaction (compressed soil) can make it
difficult for air, water and roots to penetrate the soil mix. Raised
bed gardening reduces or eliminates compaction and allows air and water
to reach the roots easily so they can expand and grow. The Greenhouse
Cover System for Raised Bed Garden Frames lets you lay the groundwork
for a healthy and productive garden. Raised bed gardens are inherently
self draining since the growing media is above the normal soil line!
Poor soil conditions and drainage problems need not be corrected with
costly, messy and lengthy projects such as having your property
re-graded or having truckloads of top soil added to your yard
just to add a garden or flower bed. Because the growing environment is
"raised" above the normal ground level, raised bed gardens are
self-draining. They provide for a way to instantly and easily add
flower beds and vegetable gardens to your home, office, or school
thereby allowing you to start gardening almost immediately!
to Make Your Raised Bed Garden Greenhouse More Productive:
The fertility of the soil is improved
adding organic compost, composted manure, and natural forms of
minerals. Dig the soil, in the beds, to a depth of about 2 feet (double
so that the root growth and drainage penetrate the soil easily. Design
the beds to your climate and soil type. Wet climates do better with
higher beds; they dry faster because more soil is exposed. Sandy soils
dry rapidly and need to have lower beds. The tendency for beds to dry faster and warm
sooner becomes a problem when spring and summer are windy, hot and dry.
This means that frequent watering becomes necessary. Mulching can also
help keep temperatures cooler and help retain moisture in the soil.
Mulch the beds with grass clippings or straw to prevent changes in soil
moisture or temperature. Monitor moisture levels in the beds. Be ready
to provide extra water
to the crops during stressful times. Harvest or remove plants as they
begin to crowd each other or if they
Lack of soil moisture and temperature fluctuations can make
sensitive crops develop problems - lettuce can turn bitter; squash,
tomatoes cucumbers and peppers will have more blossom end rot; and peas
will stop flowering. This requires monitoring and appropriate action -
watering and mulching - to eliminate these problems. The close planting
within raised beds may lead to reduced air circulation
and encourage diseases. Using intercropping and succession planting
will help reduce this problem. Dressing with organic compost also help
alleviate this problem. Soil beds can sink approximately 3 inches each
Adding 3 to 6 inches of organic compost or top soil will restore the
soil bed. Structure your plants diagonally to get the
most out of your garden. Place your tallest
plants in the back of the bed to prevent
them from shading smaller plants. To ventilate, open to desired height
and clamp the open cover to the arched rod. The greenhouse design
depends on the sun for its heat and light, especially when the sun
stays low to the horizon (lowest in winter). If you use the Raised Bed
Garden Greenhouse in the winter, place the longest side of the unit for
southern exposure. If only used
in the late winter, spring and fall place the longest side of the unit
more toward the east.
Wash with hot water and soap. Do not use bleach
or abrasive cleaners.
