heating a greenhouse?

oneshotvethJune 9, 2013

So, I'm toying with the idea of making a tropical plant greenhouse, but I live in massachusetts. How would you heat a greenhouse in the winter? Wood stove, I'm thinking, better yet a pellet stove where you can set the temperature it should be at? Do they make vents that open and close automatically depending on the temperature?

Thanks in advance.

they make automatic everything lol First decide what you want to grow how large a space and most important
how much you want to spend . Don't forget operating costs .In your area the big thing will be winter of course along with sun light. Check around the web among the hundreds of GH sites . There's also a GH forum will give you some direction on the hundreds of possibilities
good luck gary
