"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."
'Enhanced by Ben Russell's colourful and purposeful photos, this is a great book to have by your side, demostrating the range and variety of what you can grow in a polytunnel - and all year round too!
The e-book edition of the immensely popular guide, polytunnel gardening just got even more practical.
The Polytunnel Book is the most comprehensive, practical guide to polytunnel gardening available. 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. Forming part of Frances Lincoln's extensive and exciting gardening range, e-book editions of Square Metre Gardening, Window-Box Allotment and Grow Your Own Vegetables are also available for purchase.
