    So this year, as my enjoyment for an exotic style garden and plants has grown, so has the need for overwintering space.

    I was wondering whether a plastic greenhouse like the one pictured would be suitable enough to keep some plants in to keep them frost free. Maybe even with a bit of fleece lining added. I know a greenhouse heater is an option to, but would it be practical in something like this. Or is this all just asking for sadness come spring?

    I have a conservatory, but the wife is already telling me off with what ive brought in already 🙃

    Cheers in advance, Jack

    Hi @Jack , I use plastic covered outdoor shelving from Ikea and it works really well for half hardy plants. I’ll actually be sharing a video about them soon.

    You’d surprised how much anything that keeps the rain off plants will help 👍
