i am building my own greenhouse


By Dukeo

lancashire, United Kingdom Gb

iwas thinking of using corrugated perspex for the roof,does it matter if it has uv protection plants need uv light/rays to help growth.?



i dont no much bot greenhouses, but i do no plants need light to grow, not direct sunlight, so id say it should be ok.

Glass doesn't let UV rays through either, that's why you don't tan indoors next to a window. So It should be fine. I assume you are going to use the stuff that conservatories often use for their roofs, so, again, that will be fine. Make sure it's properly fixed and can't blow off.
