    I don't have a greenhouse in this garden ... but I think ventilation is really important ... and of course you'll need pollinators in there too.

    Is it glass? Are you in the UK?

    Definitely need ventilation, even on days that don't seem that warm. It encourages problems if you don't   :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • Ok thanks very much

    If you don't already have them I would suggest fitting automatic openers to the roof vents. I use Bayliss Autovents which have been reliable for some years now.
