Damp in greenhouse

Last year I lost a number of plants due to excessive damp in my greenhouse, which is heated by an electric fan heater, and occasionally a parafin heater,


 How can I avoid this this winter. Help please!!

    open the door and vents? and just use the electric heater. Water is a by-product of paraffin burning

  • The paraffin heater may be contributing to the problem as they can cause excessive condensation.

    You need to open the doors and windows as often as possible even in winter. this will reduce condensation and help keep pests down

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
