Re: What's the Best Way to Heat a Small Greenhouse?

Your brick floor is a really good start to capture the suns heat during the day. In my first green house, two layers of glass with 6 mill covering, I had 13 55 gal drums full of water on the south side to absorb the heat from the sun. The floor never went below 32 degrees. All of the veggies were in containers on the barrels that I used as a bench. Depending what the covering of your green house will be is also determine how much heat you can save overnight. Recycled windows, if your lucky enough to know a contractor who replaces windows from time to time. 6 mil plastic in a double layer will do a good job of holding heat. Hope this helps, good luck.
