    I started my greenhouse the same week as when you made your new one in 2014 god damn 6 years this March god that’s gone too quick haha I stayed heating mine then and haven’t luckily had any problems , Altho the tutorial I followed was one you made in 2013/14 I think 😂😂

  2. Desert Plants of Avalon on December 2, 2021 at 12:56 pm

    Such a fantastic tips Brad, thank you so much for sharing XXXX <3

  3. Amy Snipes on December 2, 2021 at 1:00 pm

    Where are you located? Plant zone?
    This is a great video. I’m zone 7 Delaware. Now I just need the greenhouse!

  4. Caryn Holden on December 2, 2021 at 1:01 pm

    Use white barrels and paint them black put in the corners of the green house and fill with water. Will do the same as the bottles. Put a self across the top and can double as a shelf. Also can be used as a water source if not luck enough to have running water in the green house. Then put your most tender around the barrels. Will have to start heating the water barrels before it gets cold as that much water will take time to warm..

  5. Nicolas Beachy on December 2, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    A hot water bottle! I would’ve never bloody thought of that, thank god I’m subscribed XD

  6. After Burner on December 2, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    why not just buy a small oil heater with a thermostat

  7. Sunilnand Vijayarathna on December 2, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    That thermostat is good, best is little candles well protected…. Cheers mate.

  8. Simmonds on December 2, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    I’m planning to set a couple of jugs of water on top of a seedling heat mat connected to the thermo plug. Should help to evenly radiate heat. Thanks for the tips!

  9. Mac Clark on December 2, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Actually I use 30 gal. Barrels filled with River Rock then topped off with water. So the Rocks hold the heat for approximately 6 hours.But then my Greenhouse is 10’x14’ RIGA4. So it’s at got a bit of insulation. In order to use the Candles cover them elevated with bricks then clay pots.

  10. Natural World on December 2, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    Would glass bottles hold the heat for longer?

  11. Evan5935 on December 2, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    If you use terracotta pots or put on in the middle of a metal coffee container, it will trap more heat, get warmer and radiate enough to warm up the place. if using the terracotta pot method, place a few blocks around the candle, and place the pot bottom up on the blocks so that is just a bit (maybe an inch or two) above the top of the candle and just let it go 😎😎

  12. Dawn Halcisak on December 2, 2021 at 1:08 pm

    2 degrees? Not 32 for freezing??

  13. peter J on December 2, 2021 at 1:09 pm

    Need to live on Vancouver Island or a similar climate though, that’s sort of important!

  14. unlabuntenga on December 2, 2021 at 1:10 pm

    I watched a video that stated 55 gallon drums tend to separate into a warm upper layer and a cold lower. To combat this I put a 75w aquarium heater in the bottom and sealed it with the lid as to contain it and not affect humidity keeping it warm throughout. During the day the heater automatically turns off and absorbs the ambient heat. If the water drop below 80F the heater maintains the temperature providing a 70-80F large thermal mass to get you through the night. I have 2 in a 10×12 however, this is not the only method I use because although not dying at 40-50F plants tend to slow down and look sickly if sustained at those temps. This is a timely topic heading into the coldest part of the year. I rewatched the mr.heater video on this channel yesterday for ideas on this matter.

    Free heat would be making a compost pile in the greenhouse… Compost produces heat

  16. Laura Fedora on December 2, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    I think at some point we need an update video on your new puppy 🐶 lol

  17. conor dennehy on December 2, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    make and update video on the Ecuador unusual orchid order!

  18. Nick Rotellini on December 2, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    You can also use a small clay pot with steel wool over a 40 watt bulb lamp. The bulbs die kinda fast but they are cheap and it works great!

  19. Kane Sponner on December 2, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    I’m going to experiment with a fish tank heater. Make a large heat sink. Seal it in a tub of water or something.

  20. Matthew Polmanter on December 2, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    My primary heat source is a Comfort Zone heater! They are pretty efficient and powerful heaters, and it doesnt need to run constantly either. Love it! I supplement by bubblewrapping

  21. Shih Tzus Rule on December 2, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    What brand of window is that? I had windows like that but a truck hit my house and I couldn’t find out what brand it was to get the insurance to replace it.

  22. David Schmidt on December 2, 2021 at 1:26 pm

    Thanks a million Sir…man…some really great ideas….never saw a thermal cube before…super cool idea👏👏👏👏👏

  23. Scary Fear on December 2, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Thanks for the great tips. I could use some of these as we do get freezing temps at times. I think I’ve seen that video with the giant stove haha. Yeah it’s too much. I love soda. Those bottles are helpful for so many things.

    Hi, Brad! Thank you for sharing all this useful information. Can I ask you about your experience in protecting your garden from heavy downpours?

  26. AA Home Gardening on December 2, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    Lovely, thanks

  27. Kat's Eye View on December 2, 2021 at 1:34 pm

    i have an itty bitty green house. i use my canning pot, with an inch of water, place the candles (large ones) into clay pots then in the pan. works a treat. buts a small space. warms to 65 for about 5 hours.

  28. Lemar Taylor on December 2, 2021 at 1:39 pm

    Thank you for the info !!

  29. ‘Hamim CHOWDHURY’ on December 2, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    Do you thik i should crack thevplastic pot and repot ? the roots made nest around pot. creacking means all root out side pot is gone ! Suggest plz

  30. Pickle-_-Ricks on December 2, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    its 80w a candle and it takes about 58 or 60 w to heat a 10x10x10 room 1 degree Fahrenheit

  31. Stellar148 on December 2, 2021 at 1:41 pm

    Thanks for this GREAT video!

  32. Mango heart games on December 2, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    how can i prevent moisture from building up on the heater?

  33. sparklemotion on December 2, 2021 at 1:46 pm

    Can you confirm which zone you’re in? From googling Vancouver Island, it seems like 8 or 9. Your tips probably won’t be practical for folks like me in zone 4.

  34. Sylvie Dionne on December 2, 2021 at 1:47 pm

    Have you looked into window shrink film? The clear kind you install with two-sided tape on the frame and using a hair dryer? It’s done a huge difference for me, without losing light intensity like you do with bubble wrap.

  35. T Sonja on December 2, 2021 at 1:48 pm

    Great info!!

  36. GSD Alpha on December 2, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    Hey, Brad, I just discovered your channel! We have a small 6’x6′ unheated greenhouse. I saved 6 of my big cat litter jugs (20 lb size), painted them black, and filled them with water. On a sunny day, I’ll set them in direct sun, then move into the greenhouse before dusk. They keep the greenhouse about 5-10 degrees warmer than outside air – within reason. I’m in the northern third of Indiana, so these don’t work when it’s 18 degrees outside, but they’re excellent in Spring when temps may drop to high 20’s-low 30’s overnight. I may experiment this Spring with one of those small cube heaters w/thermostat. Beats worrying about my greenhouse temps. We grow a sizable veggie garden which feeds us all summer, then we can or dehydrate to eat all winter. Keeping those warm-weather seedlings healthy is a must. The small oscillating fan is something I need! Thank you for the ideas!

  37. James Walker on December 2, 2021 at 1:52 pm

    You could combine them aswell. Like putting the water bottle above the candles.

  38. Original Artworks on December 2, 2021 at 1:53 pm

    The ONLY 100% FREE method is mulch. A bare ground addition to a home can be made into a growspace That can be accomplished with mulch. If it holds moisture and if the right thickness is maintained adding a layer every two weeks. Kept moist this mulch breaks down and creates HEAT.

  39. Farmer Kevin on December 2, 2021 at 1:53 pm

    I used my bbq smoker to heat my greenhouse. My smoker does the heating and the cooking . The Oklahoma Joe Smoker work great. My greenhouse serve as trellis, greenhouse and playhouse.

  40. Bobbi West on December 2, 2021 at 1:56 pm

    Bales hay or straw sitting outside help. In light freeze weather. I have never tried in heavy freezes with lots of snow. I would imagine a thermal water proof moving blanket on top, with a tarp over to help keep moisture off would help.take care.
