The Greenhouse Gardener's Manual
This invaluable tool will serve as an inspiring blueprint for gardeners ready to embark on the adventure of gardening for even more months in the year.
Imagine biting into a fresh, juicy tomato straight from the vine in the middle of winter. Or growing a huge collection of succulents and cacti in even the coldest parts of the world. Or relaxing, mid-snowstorm, in a warm room packed with colorful and fragrant flowers: orchids, fuchsias, and paperwhites. These are just a few of the benefits a home greenhouse can offer.
In The Greenhouse Gardener's Manual, Roger Marshall provides you with every tool and technique you need to successfully grow edibles and ornamentals in a well-maintained greenhouse. You will learn how to choose the right greenhouse, create a healthy environment, start seeds and propagate, and maintain your greenhouse. Marshall also offers plant profiles with complete growing information for hundreds of edible and ornamental plants.
Greenhouses offer gardeners a way to extend their growing season, a chance to increase their plant palette beyond the limits of their region, and a place of refuge. And with The Greenhouse Gardener's Manual in hand, you can finally do it all with confidence!
