Surprisingly we've been pretty warm here, but we had a fire in the house a couple nights now, just to take the chill off. Haven't turned the furnace on yet, which is nice. Do you keep a lot heated in your greenhouse, or just keep it from freezing?

Another cold night!! Chris at this point I only keep them warm at night. By 10ish the doors are wide open and the fans are running. The Brug House is the one that is important in keeping it warm, a lot of the tropicals are kept in there. I have moved more towards the cooler Brugmansias Sanguinea so I'm not keeping it as hot. The smaller greenhouse is where I store the potted stuff and keeping it at 60 is good, I have a heat bed so that too helps in there.
