Reflector in Greenhouse.

I have a greenhouse which has one side right against a fence and a neighbour's tree which means that there is little direct sunlight after about lunch time.

I was considering lining the shady side with some type of reflective coating to maximize the morning sun and associated radiant heat.  I wondered if anyone has had any experience of doing this, and if so, were there any real benefits.

    I haven't any experience of reflective coating but I think cucumbers would like that side of your GH image

    It is relatively easy to get old mirrored wardrobe doors free from people wanting to save them going to landfill.  I would try that.

  • Thanks for the suggestions.  I'll certainly give the cucumbers a try, and probably hang around at the local recycle centre a bit and try to hijack what I can before it goes in the skip.
