It’s always an excellent time to start tending to those places in the garden that have been neglected.


A well-organised greenhouse can make the world of difference to your plant care duties, so follow these top tips to get yours in prime condition and watch your plants thrive…

How to organise your greenhouse

Make efficient use of space by dividing your greenhouse into zones. It’s important that these zones are organised according to the needs of each individual plant you grow. Place those that like the heat closer to the glass and those that need shelter in the shadier areas. Perhaps think about separating non-edible plants from edible varieties so that they’re easy to access when ripe.

To make gardening in all weathers possible, clear a workspace to use as a potting table. They’re easy to find at garden centres or you could upcycle one from unwanted furniture and wooden pallets. Use hooks to create extra storage for smaller gardening tools and place a couple of large plastic tubs under your potting table for pots and compost.

Utilise the height of your greenhouse with shelving. Opt for a sturdy slatted design to allow for optimum air circulation and easy water drainage. Arrange labelled waterproof storage boxes on the shelves so that it’s easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Remember to store seeds in an airtight container in a cool, dry and dark place, though!

Don’t forget the back of the door! You could fix a purpose-built tool rack to it for your hand tools or alternatively, hang up a planting calendar to keep track of all your gardening duties.
