Despite all the good info, a big part of this book is the excellent month by month guide to when and what to plant, which makes life much easier your first year with a polytunnel. HOWEVER...buyer beware: I live in the Rocky Mountain region of Colorado. Our climate is so vastly different overall that I can't even just push things back a few months. It just won't work, no matter what. We have more hours of daylight here in late fall and early spring than you would find in the UK's more northerly latitudes. It is colder in the winter for much longer (this book refers to 32 degrees F as "really cold" HA!) And our summers are much hotter. It's like a different planet here. So if you live in the UK go for it. If you are in a truly harsh climate, there are some good tidbits, but not worth the price of the book. Might be good for folks in the coastal Northwest or central Atlantic areas.

Gives a great over-view of what you can and need to do for the polytunnel by each month. Has lots of great pictures and great ideas, like shelves about eye level and how the different plots are arranged. My polytunnel is 30ft x 100ft and so there is a little size difference. The climate is a bit different here in Kansas, but I can adapt the ideas for my area. We have a lot of wind here and the plastic keeps kept trying to blow off. I love the pictures!

A quick flick through this (Kindle) book was enough to give me a number of options I hadn't even thought of. Reading it now in more depth, I'm finding it's an excellent tool to help you get the most out of a polytunnel or greenhouse - beyond growing hot-climate veg like tomatoes, aubergines, peppers and okra. The monthly action plans are particularly helpful. I'm seriously delighted with it and unreservedly recommend it to anyone new to hot-house food production.
