what is the best way to heat my lean to greenhouse.it faces to t

sun?

:)

Seriously, what is most common is copper-fin on copper-tube fin tube radiation with bronze or stainless steel hangers. It will turn green but the cupric oxide is a natural fungicide.

Next up, higher in cost but better in performance is radiant, feet-down the best thing going provided that your edge and bottom insulation is secure and thick, at least R-10. Essentially you want a concrete floating slab in an insulation sea...

The challenge to radiant in a greenhouse is control, now to anticipate slab temperature and shut down the heating supply ahead of it, when the sun comes out. That thermal flywheel will have your awning windows opening and wasting both free and paid-for heat.

But with radiant comes dry floors after watering and superior comfort. You already have the thermal mass of a concrete floor, so I would use it.
