yup that works too. It does not take much.  Jo, if you throw a tarp over your bikes any heat source will work, just watch out for possible fire danger.  The heater should not have exposed elements ( I use an "oil" type that never gets warmer than about 180 degrees).   


on cold nights a sheet will keep many plants from freezing.
