Greenhouse temperatures?

NOTTINGHAM, United Kingdom Gb

What temperature should a greenhouse be when growing cucumbers and tomatoes? mine is in full sun and gets extremly hot, I have bought some shading (the paint on stuff) but wondered where I should be aiming temperature wise



I usually manage to keep mine between 25 -30 degrees. I have automatic vents and some lights that i open if the weather is due to be hot and sunny. in the height of summer i will also leave the doors open. so not an easy straight forward answer, sorry.

Cucumbers like it hot and wet, tomatoes hot and damp. As Seaburngirl says the best way is to put in an automatic vent.
