Hey all,
I recently received a small green house as a birthday present. I was wondering what I would be able to or would do well growing in the green house. Summer temperatures can reach 40 degrees centigrade in summer but rarely go 0 degrees centigrade in winter. We have just reach spring over here in Australia.
Thanks for all your help, pat :)

Congratulations on your new greenhouse. I can't wait to get one myself. From the temperatures you describe, it sounds like you could grow any kind of temperate CPs in the greenhouse year round and they would do great. In the summer, you will have to make sure that the greenhouse is well vented so it doesn't get hot enough to cook the plants. In the winter, if the temps don't get down below freezing very often, you won't have to do anything to protect the plants. The greenhouse will provide plenty of protection.
