A bit of sun came out today and see how HOT it has got already!!!

I noticed that there are some gaps on the top of the installation between the glass panes, is that how it is meant to be?

Re: Recommendations for a greenhouse electric heater please

Thanks to everyone who shared their valuable inputs. I decided to drill the greenhouse onto the deck and get it going this way for a few years; I will monitor it closely for rot.

Re: Recommendations for a greenhouse electric heater please

The only thing to be careful of is to get the correct model WH7016M - a 240V one which can switch 30A...

So what does everyone do with winter growing dioscorea and it is peak winter? Do you still water them carefully even though greenhouse is at 5-10c?
