Folks,

GREEN HOUSES - A RECORD OF FIVE EXPERIMENTAL GREEN HOUSES .
Discussions around materials, fruit trees, temperatures, and all sorts of learnings from each model including a green house incorporating the hugerkulter model of growing! inside and outside the green house!!

You may appreciate this 2020 video from Zone 4 Canada, if you live in snow climates, or are considering the design and details, structural materiials, dimensions and how to use PASSIVE SOLAR HEAT ONLY and grow apricots, cherries, and luscious grapes in your next green house. Or because you just want to learn, or are curious about learning more.

ENJOY, and please share which tips you found most beneficial please.

I loved this video.  Gives me some ideas of things to try in the community garden.  Basically merging his underground greenhouse with a Russian citrus trench to grow peaches and other zone 7/8 plants here in zone 4...

I'm a bit surprised at how closely he planted his trees in the barn greenhouse.  Maybe they're columnar dwarf trees (if that's even a thing).

IN regards to planting his trees so close, I think he knew with confidence that they will all grow UP for the light rather than outward sprawling. Regardless it worked for him.


Do post what you end up doing for your next project.

I agree ihis vide is very inspiring for the learnings and for perseverance!!!
