Grow Ceres | How To Plan a Garden Layout in a Solar Greenhouse

Welcome to Grow with Ceres, where we take you inside our greenhouses to get a glimpse at what our growers are up to. We’ll share with you gardening tips and tricks for various plant species and also how to maintain your greenhouse for optimal year-round production.

On this episode of Grow Ceres we ask Meredith her strategy behind the gardening layout of her year-round passive solar greenhouse. Learn how she pairs her greenhouse with her outdoor garden and how the indoor environment can benefit the outdoor one.

0:00:04.920,0:00:10.349
so tell us a little bit about your your

0:00:07.899,0:00:14.980
layout here how did you decide to plant

0:00:10.349,0:00:16.480
what you planted where yeah so when you

0:00:14.980,0:00:19.170
see the pictures of the full greenhouse

0:00:16.480,0:00:22.330
I kind of broken it into four quadrants

0:00:19.170,0:00:24.789
in part depending on where you’re gonna

0:00:22.330,0:00:26.949
get the most Sun in the heat so because

0:00:24.789,0:00:29.949
I’m growing annuals like this as well as

0:00:26.949,0:00:30.910
tropical trees the tropical trees kind

0:00:29.949,0:00:33.160
of go in the back

0:00:30.910,0:00:34.149
what is that North West quadrant which

0:00:33.160,0:00:36.520
they’re going to get the most Sun

0:00:34.149,0:00:41.739
year-round and the heat most year-round

0:00:36.520,0:00:43.780
to the East North quadrant is kind of my

0:00:41.739,0:00:45.910
workstation because it gets the least

0:00:43.780,0:00:47.050
amount of heat and Sun and then up here

0:00:45.910,0:00:48.850
in the front in the area that we’re

0:00:47.050,0:00:51.129
standing in right now that is the south

0:00:48.850,0:00:53.050
east quadrant and that’s where I laid

0:00:51.129,0:00:56.379
out these four beds so I can do annuals

0:00:53.050,0:00:59.230
with some rotation and then in the west

0:00:56.379,0:01:00.699
south or Southwest quadrant you have a

0:00:59.230,0:01:04.059
little bit of like a living room area

0:01:00.699,0:01:06.159
with herbs and edible flowers you can

0:01:04.059,0:01:09.760
kind of enjoy the view of the West and

0:01:06.159,0:01:12.790
the mountains from this location yeah

0:01:09.760,0:01:14.200
and how do you care your greenhouse with

0:01:12.790,0:01:17.710
your outdoor garden so you have a

0:01:14.200,0:01:18.970
beautiful big outdoor yeah so one of the

0:01:17.710,0:01:21.790
main main benefits of having the

0:01:18.970,0:01:24.520
greenhouse is that you can start

0:01:21.790,0:01:25.900
seedlings really really early and by the

0:01:24.520,0:01:28.090
time it’s warm enough here in Colorado

0:01:25.900,0:01:30.220
to get them outside they’re decently

0:01:28.090,0:01:32.409
sized so these these guys here that you

0:01:30.220,0:01:34.780
can see at our feet I started all of

0:01:32.409,0:01:36.880
these from seed in my house under grow

0:01:34.780,0:01:38.850
lights and then once they were yay big

0:01:36.880,0:01:40.600
you know kind of true leaf sized

0:01:38.850,0:01:42.640
replanted them brought them in the

0:01:40.600,0:01:45.520
greenhouse and you can see like I mean

0:01:42.640,0:01:47.740
this tomato is you know ready to go

0:01:45.520,0:01:49.630
outside so in the next couple days it’ll

0:01:47.740,0:01:51.970
it’ll go outside so that’s that’s the

0:01:49.630,0:01:53.619
main benefit is being able to both

0:01:51.970,0:01:55.210
double your fruit production but also

0:01:53.619,0:01:56.320
use the greenhouse as a way to start

0:01:55.210,0:01:58.740
stuff much earlier than you otherwise

0:01:56.320,0:01:58.740
could

0:02:00.050,0:02:07.610
