The Q&A Archives: Greenhouse Manual

Question: I need a manual for my parents greenhouse. They purchased it from a friend and the friend believes that they purchased it from Burpee. It is a 8' x 10' greenhouse. Do you have any suggestions on a manual?

Answer: If there is any indication of the manufacturer, that would be the best place to start if you need an assembly manual specific to that particular greenhouse or mechanical parts such as heaters or fans. Most greenhouse owners find that a basic reference book or two on hobby greenhouses can be handy for maintaining and operating the greenhouse, but that in the long run trial and error and record keeping are the best indicator for day to day aspects of heating, ventilating, and so on because these will depend as much on the specific location and exposure and microclimate as on the greenhouse itself.
