The use of timers will give you more time to work with your plants and less time maintaining the environment of the greenhouse. When you have a greenhouse you have many choices in accessories. Some make you more comfortable as you work while others make your greenhouse more attractive. Be sure you consider purchasing timers as you outfit your greenhouse.
You can install timers to adjust louvers controlling air circulation, moisture and heat release. Mechanical timers can also be used to control heating systems for the colder months. Timers are a wise investment to back up a thermostat even if they are not the primary means of temperature control in your greenhouse.
It is essential for most plants to be given the correct amount of water at the right time. This is another function that plant timers can fulfill. You can buy water timers that can be programmed to deliver the right amount of water at the right time to meet each individual or grouping of plants needs. Systems are available to mist, drip irrigate or simply water the plants.
Proper lighting is as critical as water for your plants to flourish. Timers make it possible for you to provide your plants with adequate light to serve your purpose, whether you are forcing bulbs and spring flowers or keeping your geraniums blooming through a long cold winter.
Installation of timers in your greenhouse will give you peace of mind and more time to enjoy your gardening. You may find that with more time and a controlled environment you may expand your choice of plants.
