Amending Soils with Manure [Building a Greenhouse: Part 3]

 Building a greenhouse (Part 3)

This is our third video post in a series on "Building a Greenhouse," and today we're talking about soil amendments!

In Part 1, we showed you some of the best benefits of building a greenhouse including:

  • Extending your growing season
  • Gaining more control over your growing variables (pests, temperature, humidity, etc.)
  • Providing shelter for crops from snow, hail, and high winds

And in Part 2, we walked you through installing, securing and inflating your greenhouse covering.

If you're building a greenhouse for hydroponic production, you won't need soil amendments. See the Greenhouse Bundle for more info on building vertical hydroponic greenhouses.

If you plan on growing in the ground, then you will probably want soil amendments to get your soil to the ideal texture & nutrition levels for growing. Today, we'll be discussing some basic soil amendments you may need to do once you have your greenhouse cover on and your soil is fairly thawed out.
