#66678 Confused Newbie Whose Inherited....

This is what I did. Heat lamp and frost heater with thermostat in little hut on patio, I dug up the paving slabs in places and dug up plantain, garlic mustard geranium etc to put in. She's out there till hibernation. Glad you're choosing outdoors. This set up is great for us cis i can sit and watch her from the conservatory. The glass shelter is an old shower screen, I've put an outdoor light on a timer under it and she uses it on cloudy days. I've fenced it with stud timber from wickes, put some pond netting over it all. Just to give you an idea.

That's really helpful, thank you!  Thank you everyone!  I had a good look at my friends set up.  Was really happy to see how easy the "table top" method seemed if you wanted to bring them in in the Winter and not hibernate them (they'd happily hibernated theirs for years but lost one last year so are nervous about doing it again).  Thank you everyone, you've made me go from panic mode to "I can do this" mode :thumbup:

P.S I'm thinking we will hibernate him in the winter.

Ooh fab, thanks Karen.  I've reached out to a friend who has 3 Hermanns, and am bobbing up there after work to see her set up.  Think that will really clear my mind up too.  I can get some chicken wire from work to put across the top.  I was also going to fix some clear material (glass/perspex) over a portion of it, to make one area much warmer too.    :sun:
