Fleece lined greenhouse with heated frame and rooted cuttings

The frame (enveloped in polythene in the corner there) is still heated with a cable and no doubt helps to keep the greenhouse frost free. (It didn't help much last year mind.) A few shrubs root well if left in the frame over winter (mytles for example). I learned last year not to pot them them up until spring, even if they're well rooted. The disturbance can be fatal at this time of year.
I discovered yesterday that mice have been burrowing around in the cuttings frame, making tunnels and hills and generally redeveloping the neighborhood. It must have been nice and cosy for them in there. I'd let it dry out a bit too much so it was my fault.
I have no idea how many animals there are in my greenhouse. I found a mouse nest recently behind the potting tray and last year there was a rat nest among the pots. One of the benches is slowly sinking at one corner due to undermining by something. There were a lot of moles in the garden last summer but it might be the rats again.
Strangely though, despite all this activity there's been very little damage (touch wood). No signs of rummaging in the seed pots (the seeds are stored in the fridge). It would be different no doubt if I grew a lot of bulbs.



Construction begins on the greenhouse on top of the New Science Building. The new greenhouse has three growing rooms, or climate-controlled environments, compared to the two rooms that the previous greenhouse had. "Independent heating and evaporative cooling systems for each growing room will be computer controlled," Giesmann said. "Environments can be regulated to accommodate plants from tropical to desert climates."
An automatic system will regulate sun exposure in the growing rooms using high quality shade cloth. This curtain-like system will produce higher quality plants, reduce heating/cooling costs, and provide a more comfortable work environment, according to Blake. The shade cloth is an improvement from the old greenhouse in Founder's Hall, which had to be sprayed with shading compound every year. "So, no painting panels," Blake pointed out. "That's a plus."
