    Electric but only if it's cheap to get electric into the greenhouse safely.

    Sunlight, augmented by solar panels, at night?, woodburner.
    I like the thanks button, but ,please, an I agree button.

    Will the grammar and spelling police respect I do make grammatical errors, and have carp spelling, no need to remind me.

    Bubble wrap the tender plants and pots and move stuff off the floor and away as far as possible form the glass. Try to ventilate the greenhouse as often as possible on mild days, and try to water as little as possible. That's all I can afford to do in mine, most things survive and you can bury Geraniums and Fuschias in boxes of Peat / Straw until the spring.
    My Mind wanders, if found please return.

    Mate of mine was a very keen gardener and allotment holder. his greenhouse was about 24ft x 10ft, he got hold of a woodburning boiler and pipe system, cast iron, give away price, his greenhouse was warmer than our house,
