I was so happy to see this posting. I have a small greenhouse that I just purchased this summer. I purchased a wood stove that went with it but since then my husband has purchased an outdoor Hardy Wood Stove that also heats your water. It is the MOST amazing thing. It is controlled by a thermostat. How warm we want it in the house is how warm it will be. He is going to play around and see about hooking it up with its own thermostat into my greenhouse. So that I dont have to stay up all night and keep the stove fed. We havent had a harsh winter here yet.
This isnt' where we got ours but ir really helps you get an idea.
We live in an old farmhouse. And by old I mean windy!! This stove has taken care of those freezing mornings. And No, I am not a salesman for Hardy Wood Stoves.

I heat a greenhouse with wood also. My heater is made from a 55 gallon drum fitted with a door and exhaust pipe kit. I also ran copper pipe in it and coiled it around the inside of the drum. Hooked a pump to run water thru it and back into another drum sitting beside the heater. Also a fan blows across the heater to help move the air around. With this set up the water in the drum with pump
gets hot enough to steam. Works fairly good.

I live in Colorado and manage to grow all winter long, with hardly any extra heat.
I have a Growing Dome greenhouse which can be assembled from a kit
Here is a article about them surviving the latest storms in Colorado
They have a pretty cool website
