Hello everyone hope your all well.

I need to purchase a green house heater for a small 6x4 alumimium green house, ideally i would prefer a paraffin heater just to keep the frost off during the winter months, any ideas or thoughts on the best buy for this.


On plant Thanks moon grower for your reply much appreciated.



Hi Harri you will be far better off with a small electric heater you can get ones specifically just to keep the greenhouse a few degrees above freezing. We overwintered several tender bulbs and plants in our large, enclosed, front porch last winter using one of these. The problem with paraffin heaters is they give off moisture and fumes which is not good for the plants.
