What happens to the plants that were outside your greenhouses? In the
pictures you linked to there seemed to be a palm outside, how does that
survive in the snow??

Your boilers sounds fantastic, only a dream for me.

My father being a palm tree collector has a few thousand palms in his
greenhouse. Their are many in large pots around the nursery in the summer
but a few manly two or three species get to spend the winter outside. They
are protected with large plastic tent like structures using PVC and poly.
They have lights in them for the cold nights. Usually turning the lights on
if it gets below 5F. He has been growing palms like this from the time I was
born. A few larger 15ft palms we and cycads are planted out with a weed
guard cloth under them. We move them in and out each year. Makes them look
like they have always been their. Not many people willing to do what we do
but each year we get to redo the whole landscape and start over LOL. Oh as
for the boiler its awesome 70f at night in the greenhouses.
