With the onset of spring, the main concern of gardeners is to save the grown seedlings after planting in open ground. To solve this problem, the best are lungs and mobile greenhouses, allowing you to reliably protect seedlings from adverse external factors. They are easy to place in any convenient place on the site.
One of these compact and lightweight greenhouse models is the model "Snowdrop"... Compared to other similar models, it is distinguished by the use of modern materials, ease of use, and well-thought-out reliability of the design. Therefore, this model is the best suited for increasing the efficiency of farming in a garden plot.

Design features

Frame this model of the greenhouse is made of polymer arches. The covering material is attached to the arches with sewn pockets, which gives the whole structure a large reliability.

The product turns out already ready to usesince to start operation, it is enough to remove it from the packaging and lay it out in the right place on the site.

The arches of the frame are equipped with pegs 250 mm long., Allowing you to securely fix the greenhouse on the ground, while no need to build a foundation... From the end parts, the covering material has a sufficient margin to be used as a kind of stretch that strengthens the structure.

Important: When assembling a greenhouse, it should be borne in mind that its design has a large windage. With a light weight, the product may rip off strong gust of wind. Therefore, special attention should be paid to carefully anchorage to the ground... If necessary, measures should be taken to secure the covering fabric on the ground, not only from the end sides.

Greenhouse "Snowdrop" - dimensions and factory characteristics

The factory design of the greenhouse is designed to shelter two or three beds from the weather. the width of the covered space is 1.2 m. The length of the frame, depending on the number of arcs included in the kit, can be 4, 6 or 8 meters. The height of this greenhouse is about 1 m, but this circumstance is completely does not interfere with watering and weeding of seedlingssince the covering material fixed on the arcs easily slides along them, as along the guides and is fixed both with the help of special clips and with the help of simple clothespins.

The frame material is pipe PND (low pressure polyethylene) with a diameter of 20 mm. This environmentally friendly material does not corrode and has sufficient strength. The included pegs and clips are also made of polymer.

Nonwoven fabric "SUF-42" is used as a greenhouse cover in this model. It contains a UV stabilizer, thanks to which the product service increases up to several agricultural seasons. At the same time, unlike film covering materials, this material has air and moisture permeability, which saves seedlings from sudden temperature changes.

We collect the greenhouse ourselves

The simplicity of the design allows you to make a snowdrop greenhouse with your own hands. The need for this may arise, for example, if the owner of the site decides to make a greenhouse with dimensions that are convenient for him (length, height, width). At the same time, a wide variety of materials can be used to make a greenhouse.

  • Any materials can be used as a framethat can be shaped like arches, and have sufficient strength. Currently, manufacturers offer a large selection of water and heating pipes made of polypropylene, pvc, polyethylene, including low-pressure polyethylene (HDPE). Greenhouses are also made from these materials in the factory. For self-production, you should choose pipes with a diameter of about 20 mm. For the manufacture of the frame, you can use fiberglass reinforcement, which has recently been often used instead of metal. It has high elasticity and strength. Metal fittings can also be used to make a greenhouse frame.
  • To cover the greenhouse, you need to purchase agrofibre any reliable manufacturer, the optimal density is 42.

Important: When buying agrofibre, you should consider it width... It can be from 1.6 to 3.5 meters. With a greenhouse height of about 1 m, a width of 2.1 m will be sufficient, if necessary, two canvases of fabric can be sewn lengthwise on a sewing machine.

The greenhouse assembly procedure is simple. First from the frame material arcs bend which are attached to the ground at a distance of 1 m from each other. For anchoring to the ground can be used pegs (for example, wooden), which are inserted into the ends of the tubes.

Another option would be to hammer pieces into the ground. fittings suitable length and subsequent fitting of the tube ends onto the fittings. If reinforcement is used as a frame, it can simply be pushed into the ground to a sufficient depth.

To give the whole structure greater reliability you can assemble a light base from wooden beams or boards, in this case, the arcs will be attached to the ground from the inside along the sides of the base. In this case, they can be pulled to the base with clamps using self-tapping screws.

After the frame is installed, it covered with covering material... In the simplest version, the material simply covers the frame from above and, if necessary, is attached to it. clips or underwear clothespins... However, much more expedient spend a little time and to do on the cover pocketsstitching the folds on a sewing machine. In this case, the greenhouse will be easy to assemble and disassemble for storage, and its design will practically not differ from the factory one.

Thus, if the need arises, the owner of the site can make a greenhouse of the "Snowdrop" model on his own, from commercially available or improvised materials. it will save any seedlings from death, whether it be any vegetables, ornamental plants or flowers.
