Wind Problems

Recommended Posts

Small pause whilst you insert your own jokes!!


Now my question. I've just built my first greenhouse an Elite High Eave with toughened glass and bar capping. Having had a few windy days I would like to know what wind speeds are considered too high to leave vents open. I am concerned that if I close all the vents because of wind that I am putting my plants, mostly Sarracenia, at risk of mold growth. Are winds gusting to 30 40 mph ok? Or what speeds would you suggest?

All advice for a new greenhouse owner would be gratefully received.

That’s something I’ve been trying to figure out too. I’ve been closing the vents and door if winds are about 30. Mine hasn’t got toughened glass though. I have installed a fan to help with air movement if the door is closed but I leave it running 24/7.

I’d be interested to see what others say though.
