If you are feeling the chill then it’s time to turn up the heat...in your greenhouse! Greenhouse heating will protect your tender plants from becoming a frosted, soggy mush, and keep your young plants snug and warm until spring. Heating your greenhouse will open up a whole new world of winter gardening!
But heating a greenhouse can be an expensive luxury, and nobody likes the idea of wasting energy or money. So we’ve put together some top tips to help you keep costs down and make your greenhouse heating more efficient this winter.
Invest in a good quality thermometer so that you can keep an eye on the air temperature in your greenhouse.
Plants and gardens have always been a big part of my life. I can remember helping my Dad to prick out seedlings, even before I could see over the top of the potting bench. As an adult, I trained at Writtle College where I received my degree, BSc. (Hons) Horticulture. After working in a specialist plantsman's nursery, and later, as a consulting arboriculturalist, I joined Thompson & Morgan in 2008. Initially looking after the grounds and coordinating the plant trials, I now support the web team offering horticultural advice online.
