Greenhouse Poll?

Slimy_Okra(2b)September 19, 2011

I was just curious for those of you who have some sort of greenhouse:

1. is it heated or unheated?

2. what make is it?

3. would you recommend it to other people?

Thanks a lot!

Here's my answers.

1. unheated

2. snap and grow

3. Only as a starter greenhouse because it doesn't retain much heat at night. Stands up well to snow, wind and hail tho'.

wood frame, made with recycled windows
love it, use it to harden off annuals and veg and then plant tomatoes in raised wooden boxes.

1. Unheated, but I use an electric space heater
2. 8x12 Wood frame and corrugated plastic. An interior 'lining' of 2 ml plastic helps retain heat from the electric heater.
3. I wouldn't be without it and would actually like something bigger.

1) heated( we have a geothermal unit for the house so there is a heated concrete floor in the greenhouse and a backup gas heater.
2) 10 x 20 BC greenhouse -triple wall polycarbonate
3) BC greenhouse great product- definitely recommend it. I grow orchids and overwintter my lime tree. But in the spring it is full of seedlings that then go into a cold frame

Hello kayakcraig,

Just curious...if you didn't have any heating, how cold would it have to be outside before it started to freeze inside the greenhouse?
