Shade  your greenhouse

The brief heatwave may be over but the sun is still strong enough to scorch plants in a greenhouse when it breaks through, and make working inside  there unbearable.  If you are organised you can add purpose-built blinds to the greenhouse as you are erecting it - they are quite hard to retrofit.  The blinds are basic rollers which can be pulled down with a special polehook to clip over the edge of the roof; there enough slack to allow automatic vents to open underneath the blinds.
