Learn to Grow Strawberries with Hydroponic Systems
Successful strawberry production can be easily done using hydroponics (the science of growing plants in soil-less material) in the controlled environment of a Gothic Arch Greenhouse…providing you with berries year-round…protected from birds and other animals. Growing berries with hydroponics can be challenging, yet rewarding as it can be adapted to almost any growing environment.

We recommend starting with leafy greens like lettuces and herbs. Bibb, romaine and leaf lettuces do particularly well, as does watercress, basil, chives, mint and many other herbs.
Aquaponic System at Gothic Arch Greenhouses
The Aquaponic System has been successfully used for growing food fish, ornamentals and bait fish. A table is appended to the end of this Manual to give you an idea of the water quality tolerances of various fish species. When planning this part, pay closest attention to the temperature needs of the fish and make sure the Aquaponic System will be operated within the necessary range. For the plants’ sake, it will be good to aim for stocking enough in the tank to eventually reach a minimum of 25 lbs of fish.
Learn How to Grow Your Own Organic Vegetables and Eat Healthier at Gothic Arch Greenhouses
Grow your own organic vegetables all year with the help of a quality greenhouse. The greenhouse is an enclosed structure that allows the gardener to grow crops in a controlled environment. This means that the right nutrients and proper sunlight are provided all year round without having to worry about pests or cold weather. One technique that has proven very effective when using greenhouses is hydroponics. This is done by using nutrient-enriched water instead of soil to grow the crops.

A hobby greenhouse can add much beauty to your home garden. Plants can be enjoyed year-round…and the greenhouse is a long-term investment. If you are new to greenhouses, these are just some of the things to consider before purchasing a quality greenhouse…. from choosing a basic style of greenhouse to designing your workspace and deciding on heating, cooling, and ventilation
Greenhouse Planning
If you want to build a greenhouse, you should carefully plan. The final choice of the greenhouse will depend on the growing space desired, home architecture, available sites, and costs.
Glass Greenhouses advantages
Glass greenhouses transmit almost 100% light and glass stays that way for a lifetime or more , compared to 80% with double wall polycarbonate that will gradually fade over time as the polycarbonate becomes more opaque. Due to the weight of the glass covering the glass greenhouse structure is generally stronger than other greenhouses, so it is an excellent greenhouse investment and adds lasting value to one’s property and home. With Glass Greenhouses, you can choose from single layer, double or triple paned glass to improve insulation and ventilation, to help your greenhouse use less energy and to provide better crop protection. Glass is quite inert, in contrast to plastic, and it can function for 40 to 50 years without failure. It is non-combustible, resistant to UV radiation and air pollutant degradation, and it maintains its initial radiation transmission if regularly cleaned. The greatest drawback of glass is its vulnerability to catastrophic losses caused by hail.
Evaporative cooling concept
To counter periods of extreme temperature that affect in-house environments and, therefore production, Evaporative Cooling Pad Systems are used with outstanding success. When large quantities of air are pulled through Evaporative Cooling Pads that are saturated with water, a substantial cooling effect is realized due to the evaporation of that water. Used in conjunction with fans, a temperature reduction of 10-25 degrees is commonplace.
