Winter Gardening in Colorado: Brushing Snow off Hoop Houses

Growing under cover in the winter? Make sure to brush off the snow on your Garden Bed Hoop House to let the sunlight in!

Garden Bed Hoop Houses work great to trap in the solar heat to warm the plants and soil and keep greens growing all winter long in Colorado. In addition to removing the snow on your Hoop House, it’s also good to open the Hoop House and let it air out on sunny warm days. You’d be surprised at how hot and steamy it gets inside when the sun in shining!

Cool weather veggies like Cabbage, Cilantro, Lettuce, Tatsoi, Spinach, and Celery don’t like super hot temperatures, so venting your Hoop House during the sunny days is best to keep your plants healthy and happy all winter long. Air movement helps reduce diseases and pests as well, so make sure to let them breathe some fresh air.
