A comprehensive illustrated practical guide to polytunnel gardening, for both beginners and experienced gardeners.
Whether you are a complete beginner, or a more experienced grower, this book has got what you need: from preparing the site, to simple charts that show at a glance how to get the best from each crop; from identifying and coping with pests, to making a hotbed, composts and organic feeds. But at the heart of this book is Joyce Russell's experienced hand guiding the reader through each month of the year. It tells what to do and when to do it, in order to grow the best fruit and vegetables all-year-round. If you want to try new potatoes, rocket and Florence fennel for Christmas; or mangetout peas, baby carrots and strawberries in April; as well as year-round salad, plenty of peppers, melons, gluts of tomatoes and much, much more, then this book shows you how.
300 colour photographs illustrate the wealth of practical tips and techniques as well as celebrating what can be achieved.
