Tremendous storms earlier; just went out and it is so humid and warm that it reminds me of the West Indies in the rainy season

Brilliant philippa. It is pretty cold up here in the Fens at the moment, but at least it has stopped raining.

what to plant in greenhouse in July

mameha, it sounds like a 6x8ft g/h, same as mine, so a basic frost buster would work; can't help on the pak choi front, don't grow it as I find it rather lacking in flavour.

lilamber; what a brilliant idea; like the gamekeepers used to hang dead weasels etc on a fence as a warning to other animals.

Can anyone tell me how do you fasten the string to the greenhouse roof? I have a Halls Silverline lean-to g/h and as far as I can see it has nothing to which I can fasten string.

Sometimes I dab a bit of white paint on the top; you could try ping-pong balls

...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?
