New greenhouse
« on: August 02, 2011, 05:38:28 pm »
Hi

I am planning on getting my first greenhouse and am thinking of cost efficient and Eco friendly ways of heating it.

Firstly, any recommendations on what to look for in a greenhouse. Secondly has anyone tried a heatsink to keep theirs warm

I wonder how efficient this is likely to be in the winter, or whether this combined with a small paraffin heater would be efficient? Any other thought on heating - would a solar panel be able to peer an electric heater?

Thanks
