1- Revitalize the earth:
The climate in a greenhouse is semi-tropical. This can result in high temperature resulting in increased humidity. This phenomenon transforms the state of the soil, because it directly undergoes sunlight. So, do not wait until the earth is exhausted to find solutions. It is better to take preventive measures to keep the soil rich.
2- Eliminate the degrading factors:
As time passes, the qualitative elements of the earth undergo a considerable regression. In order to bring the soil of a greenhouse back to life, make sure it does not become too dry. Indeed, if it is devoid of moisture, its biological activity stops and it becomes a simple mineral support, unable to ensure the proper growth of plants.
In addition, it is necessary to strengthen the nutrients and micro-organisms present in the soil. Indeed, the quality of the crops you plan to obtain depends on the potential of the land. Rainwater is also a major cause of soil degradation for small greenhouses that are not closed.
3- Soil renewal:
Soil renewal consists mainly of weeding and adding compost. There is no regulatory standard to succeed in this process. Be aware, however, that if you always cultivate the same plant on the earth, it will have to be renewed from time to time. To maintain the earth of a greenhouse, you can apply one of these renewal techniques:
1- The disbursement of the soil: this consists of digging the earth to a depth of about 30 cm. The goal is to replace the cleared area with potting soil or heather earth.
2- Another method is – in winter – to dispose of snow on the ground to perform the cleaning function.
3- Planting flowers next to the greenhouse: the goal is to attract pollinating insects such as bees, hornets or butterflies. They contribute to improving and increasing the performance of your greenhouse.
