Hey Dee - Great question! I was on the road most of the week so missed this when you posted it.
Tonight I need to get a sunlamp in my 'greenhouse' to keep things warm and growing.

I hope you find the information you needed. Great idea for a blog entry.

I have been thinking about getting a grow light for use during the winter for my plants. Any recommendations that won't break the bank?

I've used growlights before to start seeds, and my brother has used them to grow some veggies indoors. You don't have to spend a lot of money. Here's a link to a catalog that I get:

They even have LED growlights now, but I think those are a lot more expensive. Start small and experiment. Herbs, lettuce, spinach, other greens would do well either on a bright windowsill or under a light.

Good luck!

Hi Dee,

My guess would be to get some of that expensive equipment - - correct lighting for plants, moisture controlled pots and proper ventilation equipment, just like they do in fancy greenhouses in snowy areas. Sounds pricey to me but maybe it can be done on a budget.

Question from over on my veggie team - how does one grow a garden indoors due to cold and low sun climate?
