    I don't want to leave the door open cos the foxes are lickle divels and like playing in the veg.

    I like this idea for greenhouse number two.I was given it but it hasn't got any vents at all, when hot I'm at the allotment @ 6 to open door. think I'm going to get a louvre.

    Bins can't you just get a new cylinder for the autovent, or try putting the old one in the freezer over night.

    I dont know if this helps but I have an automatic window opener, no vents in mine, it cost me just over £15 locally. Could get one and post to you. I also leave the door open but need to net the door somehow.

    My growtunnel door has been left open 24/7 for the last 4 or 5 days and will probably remain so now.

    Can you make a wire mesh panel for the doorway?
    This is one I made out of a metal grid I found somewhere and some small hole wire mesh. It drops into the door runner and lifts out of the way.

    I just took the top panel out of the door, a 10 second job.
