The huge increase in growing your own has led to a parallel surge in interest in polytunnels, the best tool a serious vegetable grower can acquire. But until now there has been next to no information available on how to make the best use of a polytunnel. The Joyce and Ben Russell team, with their years of practical experience, have filled that gap, showing us in clear, precise detail how to erect and manage polytunnels, and above all, what to grow in them. --Joy Larkcom
The information is presented in a clear, concise fashion. It's pretty comprehensive, and the photographs are attractive and encouraging. All in all, a helpful and useful addition to my kitchen bookshelf. --Professional Gardener
This easy to read guide is packed with tips and tables on fruit and veg, ongoing care and pest prevention. Whether you want year-around advice or ideas for hot beds, potting mixes and liquid feed, you'll find this book a useful introduction. --Grow Your Own
Présentation de l'éditeur
The resurgence in home food production has generated a dramatic increase of interest in growing under cover. The season is far longer (year-round for salads and some vegetables) and you can grow exciting fruit and vegetables that aren't viable outdoors. Thanks to the polytunnel, covered growing is now available to all. And sales of polytunnels are burgeoning, as gardeners and allotment-holders realize that they could be growing more food (and more exotic food) on a smaller plot, whatever the weather outside is doing. The Polytunnel Book is the first comprehensive, practical illustrated guide to polytunnel gardening, for both beginners and experienced gardeners.
