JB, this hypothetical person might want to hypothesise about checking out this board - http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/forumdisplay.html?s=&daysprune=&f=94

Description from the site's weekly newsletter:
"ARE YOU PAYING THE RIGHT PRICE FOR HOUSEHOLD WORK? It's a nightmare question, so I've set up a new chat forum board allowing MoneySavers to ask other consumers and possibly tradesmen whether they think the quote's fair."

Very new and not explored it myself yet but certainly worth investigating if one were ever to find oneself in the position of deciding on quotes...

Ta for that. That looks like just the sort of forum I need.

So what does everyone else use to heat their greenhouse? Paraffin (I agree Madman, definately a bit stinky), gas, electric? And are there any particular heaters any one can recommend to me that obviously aren't electric?!

If you decide to go down the "it's not really permanent" route to avoid all those regs, it's as well to still be safe. Use a single length of cable from inside your house to inside the greenhouse. Make sure it is armoured. that means the copper core wires (three of them, live, neutral and earth) are surrounded by a steel sheth) it stops you from cutting through it by mistake when pruning the roses - potentially fatal. Then use a water proof connection inside the greenhouse - one with good rubber seals - and an RCD in the house. You've now spent 100, but it is a lot less than getting a supply installed professionally and should last for years.
