    I've got 9mm twin wall polycarbonate in one side of my green house and glass the other. The inside of the poly never freezes but the glass often freezes on the inside even with the heating on.

    Insulating a Greenhouse?

    Sorry, I'm just back, as I've had computer issues. That's for your replies. I've put 3 bamboo canes in the roof and ran bubble wrap over & down the sides, which has worked out fine.
