Just been on patio with a glass of wine - had to come in when it got cold & we got to disussing patio heaters. Our friends have a Chiminea which they double as a BBQ & kids thought it was fun. I think they have more character than electric heaters. However, we get conficting reports on upkeep. Some say wax them, bring in in cold weather, others say leave them out all year?
If you have either, could you comment on their usefulness/effectiveness. Any recommendations gratefully received.
Got a lovely cast-iron one in 10% day in Homebase yesterday - about £90.
Re environmental issues - will only be burning the twigs & sticks from garden that would otherwise get burnt on the big bonfire. Our garden has so many large trees, we have to get rid of the wood somehow (have NEVER had to buy logs for the log fire).
