A farmer with one of these may help you, wouldn’t take him a minute with a machine, and you could keep the harvest for the animals. failing that, a work party with heavy duty petrol strimmers  with the brush cutter attached,

Paraffin Heater - Help!!!

Posted: 13/11/2017 at 09:06

Already established that the OP can’t use electric.

Gas is probably worse than paraffin for condensation,( although I don’t know what the amount of condensation paraffin uses).  I used to work for Shell gas a long time ago, but we would tell customers that for every pound of gas burned it produces a pint of water, so the large cylinder of gas contained 104 lbs of gas, so produced 104 pints of water.  

I wonder what the OP has that needs to be kept in a heated environment, i now grow plants that don’t need heat, just frost protection, everything in my garden is from seeds and cuttings and I’ve never had any of my greenhouses heated.  My theory now is... if it’s going to cause a worry of any kind...I don’t grow it. Through this winter I will have lupins, Delphiniums, Penstemons and viola in them.

We made an area with patio slabs, then bought one of those poles to hang feeders, easily swept up and washed down. .

Does Chick weed fire seeds in all directions when you touch it, I’ve never noticed that.

Do you mean this one, I have a garden always covered in this, if you let it seed and touch it they fly out everywhere. I just try to pull it up when I can.  Not worth worrying about though, I don’t think I will ever get rid of it.
