    How do I water my greenhouse plants during the winter?

    First winter with a greenhouse, and I was told to let the ponds dry out, so the plants aren't standing in water. That's fine, but what happens when/if the plants dry out? Given that they won't get any rain in there, if we have some warm days (which does sometimes happen!), they will dry out...

    The things you find while weeding

    This morning, we pulled out a couple of small tubs of lilies from behind a greenhouse ( wintering position) and put them out into their summer location. MrsG started to weed them and found a few little welcome surprises.

    Best way to heat a small greenhouse?

    Here I am, starting threads like crazy again, but that's irrelevant. My dad told me that he was planning to build me a small greenhouse this summer (not sure how big yet) and I was hoping to heat it to 50-60 degrees in winter so that my neps could stay somewhere more humid and sunny in winter...
