Re: insulation of a second hand greenhouse

nope, I am just looking at normal seasonal veggies, but with a lower failure rate than I've experienced before, so knowing I don't need to insulate is awesome thankyou!

Re: Home Schooling

most of the HE groups round here work on either a sliding scale, so you pay according to how many kids attend. for instance the meadowfields group last week had 15 attendees, so it only cost us £3 each child. the others charge just what they need to cove hall hire costs and materials, for instance m...

insulation of a second hand greenhouse

I won a greenhouse on ebay. it's my 30th birthday pressie from the husband, but I'm getting it a couple of months before my birthday lol.
anyway., I know you "need" to heat and/or insulate a greenhouse, but how can I do this for as little as possible? and preferably for free?

thaaaanks!
