Re: Recommendations for a greenhouse electric heater please

If you want a separate digital thermostat, look for a WillHi. I used one of those as a replacement on an older Parwin, and it worked well (search the forum for a discussion), despite its low price. The only thing to be careful of is to get the correct model WH7016M - a 240V one which can switch 30A...

Re: Dioscorea rupicola - watering

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?

Re: Gardeners' World grit
