 if its any use jayg when i put the shading on our greenhouses i open all the widows and doors and  leave them open through the season as the season gets hotter i usually remove a pain  of glass at the end of the greenhouse to help the air circulation through the greenhouse

never had any problems doing this as for you roller blinds it would be a god idea to install like  the commercial growers who  have the same idea on a automatic basis worked on the temperature of the greenhouse

but something tels me it mite be costly to install a manual blind operation and of course the material would need to be like the commercial growers use to withstand  the strong  UV rays

This year is my first year with a greenhouse too and I am a little worried that it will overheat.  I guess all I can do is call by on my way to work and open all the vents and then close them later when I go to water. 

Otherwise of course I was considering putting up a couple of roller blinds to block out a little of the sun.

 Nobody seems to have mentioned whitewash onto the glass! Is there something wrong with it?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
