Bed warming continued!

A sensitive 'Enter' key resulted in my previous entry being whisked off into the ether incomplete. The question is; has anyone experience of heating benches with soil warming cables to prevent frozen pots in the depths of winter. This could not only be less expensive than space heating but may well create a better microclimate for potted alpines (as long as the pot temperature is set to be just above freezing).

Peter,

Try Ian Young's Bulb Log. Log 5 of 2004 should start you off. I tried to post a hyperlink below but it looks as though the system will not accept it
