Books on greenhouse growing
« on: September 12, 2018, 18:52 »
I am in the process of moving allotment plots, and will inherit a greenhouse.

If you could suggest one book that deals with growing in a greenhouse, which one would it be?
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I thought I was lucky getting a bigger shed, but a greenhouse - that's a nice :)

I've got an oldish Anne Swithinbank book which I thought was helpful, it's cheap as chips second-hand on Amazon.

No hesitation in recommending 'Vegetables & Herbs for the greenhouse and polytunnel' by Klaus Laitenberger.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Vegetables-Herbs-Greenhouse-Polytunnel-Laitenberger/dp/0716023423/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536783793&sr=8-1&keywords=klaus+laitenberger

Really helpful in getting started for me and I believe he contributed to the 'jobs in the polytunnel' section of this very website!

Hessayon booklets cover a wide range of gardening topics which includes growing in a greenhouse and are a good starter for anyone new because they just give the basics which I think is what you want.
I love cooking with wine, and sometimes I even add food!
