Poinsettias are in season and their vibrant red, white or pink hues, combined with their green leaves, are enough to add color to any gray and dismal outdoor area. Go to your local supermarket or nursery and stock up on a few of these plants. You can keep them in containers or plant beds outside, but bring them back inside or cover them up if the outdoor temperatures get extremely cold or if a freeze is expected. Be sure to keep them away from pets though. Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to animals, but it's better safe than sorry!

This is ideal because it probably will be the cheapest to operate and you don’t have to worry about it running out of fuel, that is unless there is a major earthquake near you and gas lines erupt. Of course, if that’s the case, running your patio heater is not the main concern then, or at least I hope it’s not.
