    Over the last couple of weekends, I have prepped for winter. I brought most of my collection inside and the most cold tolerant one stayed in the greenhouse. My greenhouse is a little 6x8 Habor Freight one. To help with the temperature I use a oil heater and insulate it with bubble wrap.

    Hope everyone is prepped for winter.

    What temperatures do you try to maintain in there?

    I am generally able to ready 48-50F as the coldest spots in the coldest months. Highs are in the low 70s during the coldest months when sun light is limited.
