The Little Heater That Could

Tropical fuschias, echiverias, musa and more cozy up in the greenhouse

We’ve been getting hit with temperatures in the one digits – 8 degrees to be exact – for the past week. An arctic  storm is supposedly on its way to make things miserable outside tonight.

The small, portable  electric heater I purchased from Greenhouse Catalog for the greenhouse couldn’t have shown up at a better time.  Coupled with the Oregon Scientific wireless thermometer, I’ve been able to track the temperature inside the greenhouse without ever stepping outside.

All the tropicals seem to be holding steady even in this bitter cold. I really recommend both devices for a small 8×12 greenhouse – they are working out great.
