    Excellent and inspiring ! Also, if you angle the surface area of the soil towards the sun (c.4˚ or 5˚) you will further maximise the heat. It can make the difference as if your vegetable garden, or raised bed, is a couple of hundred miles south ! [I saw it on a Canadian video]

    Great idea for ur northernes in northern norway, zone H6-7 as we can expect snow in april anytime! under 5 celsius now, and often frost at night.. This is something I will have to try out, so I can make some room indoor for my seedlings, so I can free up some space!
    I wounder if it might be a good idea to mix in seeweed asweel, as I have found that seeweed at the shore actually, in a old washed up pile, has a higher tempetarure than soil surronding it..?

    Nice video. Does the size of the hot bed matter? I have a green house on my allotment, during the winter this is not used for anything and is just wasted space. Could I make small hotbeds in containers to grow winter veg or lettuce in the greenhouse over the winter months.

    Maybe get tomatoes in January, wouldn't that get my fellow allotment holders thinking.

    Very interesting video. Could you make one to enable you to grow through the winter?

    What happens to the manure when it is fully rotted, does it get put directly on the garden or does it go onto the compost pile?
