what to plant in greenhouse in July

...and Aubergines. It is a bit late now to sow the seeds; January or February is best, but if you can find one, get a grafted aubergine now, which will already be quite large and will produce fruit in a month or so.

Also, it would be a good idea to have a frost buster heater installed; this kicks in when the temperature drops to about 7 c on winter nights.

What size is the greenhouse?

You could dig up clumps of it, pot them and sell them at your gate These are moderately expensive plants in the G/C, and well worth selling I would think. I grow mine in a large pot, so don't know how large the roots are in the open ground.
