    @jayluketa do a search on youtube for “pop can heater”. build one with a a solar panel that activates a computer fan. place it on the inside roof of your greenhouse. i’m also looking into doing this myself. you can potentially use solar panels to recharge a battery that powers your xmas lights in the evening. no hydro bills

    @jayluketa also use those big 2 liter pop jugs. fill them with water and paint them black. position them in the greenhouse that gets the most sunlight. they will heat up in the day and continue to warm the surrounding air at night.

    Looks like a useful idea. I think I will try this out this winter. I was wondering if you had any advice with respect to winterizing asters. I have three plants that are potted in 6 inch pots. I was wondering how you would winterize them?

    Is it a good idea to leave the potted aster outside, taking care to cover the actual plant so that it is protected from the elements? What do you suggest?
