“In a hectic world, and even less certain weather, polytunnel and greenhouse offer peaceful, independent and hugely productive gardening, supplying fresh and varied food right round the year.
Long experience gives Klaus Laitenberger special knowledge of cultivating crops under shelter and of growing them to their best in efficient, organic ways. Greenhouse or polytunnel extend the seasons for many ‘ordinary’ vegetables, give reliable harvests of the tender and tricky ones, and offer room for exciting experiment with plants one may never have known. Yacon, stevia and pepino are a few exotic names that spice this rich roster of vegetables, but the advice for raising all of them, from aubergine to turnip, is a month-by-month companion rich in insight and detail. Of the many new books on growing your own food, this is the one I’ve been waiting for.”
