People have told me that judicious positioning of flower pots help to make the heating more efficient. I did not believe it...but it really does seem to work.

You know that is a very clever idea.

I was talking to some one who heats their home with these, his have the pots fastened together with a length of threaded bar, nuts & washers similar to this video only with 4 or 5 concentric pots & a small metal container made from a cut down tin full of copper coins between the candles & the pots, it seems they really do work !

Anyone struggling to keep warm this winter ought to check them out, but make sure they are on a very stable & inflammable surface where kids & pets cant touch them.

I read this wrong as "heating your Home Office for 8 pence a day".

Well we wouldn't want the technicalities left on a train but alas I digress....

This is excellent. Genius idea!!

Maybe the title should be "Heat a room for very little money" or "Heat a room very cheaply", as it obviously work in any space & not everyone uses pounds & pence. (would be better for google)
