Let's take advantage of the cooler conditions to explore inside the garden greenhouse.

When you enter our garden greenhouse at the moment you could be forgiven for imagining that you have been transported into a jungle. The plants have thrived in the recent heat despite us being away for the two hottest days of the year.
The tomatoes are setting fruit.
The mini cucumbers are providing a constant supply of fresh fruits.
The plants are exploring freely.
The peppers and aubergines haven't set fruit yet but they are flowering.
I wasn't as successful at pollinating the peach and nectarine as I was the apricot. We have just one peach and two nectarines but will they ripen?
There are immature bunches of grapes dripping from above.
The are some ornamentals too. This year I fancied growing some coleus from seed - something that I haven't done for a while.
Climbing up the canes below are a thunbergia also grown from seed and self sown ipomoea or morning glory - will they flower?
