Greenhouse beginner

You will need to shade in some form - it is amazing how hot it can get ! I have 3 greenhouses and shade each one a bit differently - I use Coolglass which is painted on like Geoff says. My pot plant greenhouse is shaded all over,my veggie greenhouse is just shaded at the end where I grow cucumbers and my other greenhouse is shaded on the roof and one side.I am retired so can visit them often!

I am really worried that your greenhouse won't get any attention during the week - what exactly would you like to grow? Maybe I can help to sort you out a plan of action

Ideally you will need to visit your greenhouse for a few minutes each day in Summer - to open  the door and windows for good air circulation and to bring the temperature down as a greenhouse can get VERY hot ! I wet the path down with water in the mornings on very warm days as this also helps keep the temperature down and deters red spider mite which can be a problem in hot dry conditions.I have invested in a Max/Min thermometer which tells me the lowest and highest temperature in the greenhouse. As Geoff says the trays with matting would be good for potted plants with a good root system and will also help with the humidity. I feel like I have given you a lecture - sorry- It is just that I am a very keen greenhouse gardener
