Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm trying to get a sort of tropical look in my greenhouse, mad I know, for the middle of Wales!!! I hasten to add, I'm not trying to grow actual tropical plants, just stuff that looks a bit like it. Cordylines, Yucca, and a few succulents at the moment. It all just needs to be frost free. I'd like to be able to overwinter citrus in there too.

Hi all, thanks for your suggestions I can't run an extension lead or put in a proper mains cable as my garden (and therefore my greenhouse!) is the other side of an access way shared with the rest of our row of houses.
Mike, the info about what the flame should look like is really helpful - the manufacturer of my heater didn't include instructions on use of the heater and I didn't know this. I think the battery idea is interesting too

Great idea, but sadly there is no way I can run power to my greenhouse

I've recently bought a paraffin heater in an attempt to keep my greenhouse 'frost free'. I'm having trouble getting the flame right. It seems fine after I light it, and half an hour after, and when I check it before going to bed, but is very low - almost out - by morning. And yes, I have checked there is enough paraffin :)
Can anyone offer advice?
