In winter, I need to heat my Greenhouse to keep it at 5 degrees. It is easy to cover all the glass internally with "Bubbles". This reduces heating costs greatly and ensures that the temperature never drops below about 2 degrees.

Bubble wrap arrived quickly and was soon put on my fathers greenhouse. It is easy to handle and appears to be strong and has made a tremendous difference to the heat retention of the greenhouse. Only 4 stars for performance as only time will tell regarding its lasting abilities, but all round very impressed.
How to Insulate the Greenhouse
It’s a great idea to line the inside of your greenhouse during the winter – it’s economical, quick, will frost-proof the structure and can extend the growing season for up to 6 weeks. Working out how much bubble insulation (product code GHE-015) you need and just how to fit it can be a problem, so the chart below will give a rough guide to what you’ll need!
Size of Greenhouse (feet) Amount of Bubble Wrap Required
6 x 4 14m (2 rolls, 1.5m wide)
6 x 8 18m (2 rolls, 1.5m wide)
8 x 10 21m (3 rolls, 1.5m wide)
8 x 12 27m (3 rolls, 1.5m wide)
Don’t forget to allow 3 alliplugs (GHE-009) and spacers (GHE-010) per glazing bar; likewise with the corner adaptors (GHE-011).
When fitting the insulation, the following information may help.
- Measure from the floor to the apex of the greenhouse up one side and back down other, and cut the insulation to length.
- Go to the back of the greenhouse, away from the door then fold the insulation in half and secure the middle to the top ridge.
- Work along each glazing bar securing the insulation to the roof and sides with the alliplugs.
- Have a sharp knife handy to cut the bubble wrap where the vents and windows are sited. Repeat for the next panel, gradually working towards the door.
- The end panel which includes the door is best tackled by attaching the insulation to the outside of the structure, cutting to size and then securing inside.
- Simply cut the insulation which covers the door as this will allow both access and the bubble wrap to hang down – it’s a good tip to allow extra bubble wrap below the door which you can fold and weigh down, allowing less cold air to enter.
What The Press Say
On Test - Indoor Growing - Dave Finkle
This bubble wrap has 20mm air pockets which creates more efficient thermal stability. Basically a larger cavity gives better protection from frosts. A single layer acting as a curtain is all you would need to remove the risk of freeze burn. Don't forget the fact that you can manipulate bubble insulation as a ground fleece or cloche too
Bubble wrap is a great insulator in the container garden. More commonly thought of as a greenhouse insulator, it can be wrapped around patio pots to protect both the pot and the roots it contains from damaging frost action.
