Editorial Reviews

Review

"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." Joy Larkcom For those of you who dream about picking peppers and tomatoes in December and having French beans in October, this is the book for you. Oxford Times I have waited a long time to write this. I have enough space to own a greenhouse. Or should that be a polytunnel? Like many I've swung from one side to the other; I like the way a greenhouse looks, I prefer the price of a polytunnel. This book has tipped the balance. I shall get a polytunnel. BBC Gardens Illustrated A common sense and practical volume. Irish Times Joyce's enthusiasm spills from the pages and her husband's gorgeous photos make you want to rush out and get stuck in! Weekly News This easy to read guide is packed with tips and tables on fruit and veg, ongoing care and pest prevention. Whether you want year-around advice or ideas for hot beds, potting mixes and liquid feed, you'll find this book a useful introduction. Grow Your Own Find out all you need to ensure efficient use from 'The Polytunnel Handbook'. Country Living For us gardeners yet to splash out on this season extending extravagance, Joyce Russell's comprehensive book makes an impressive argument. Irish News The information is presented in a clear, concise fashion. It's pretty comprehensive, and the photographs are attractive and encouraging. All in all, a helpful and useful addition to my kitchen bookshelf. Professional Gardener A comprehensive illustrated practical guide to polytunnel gardening for both beginners and experienced gardeners. Kitchen Garden For those looking to be further self-sufficient one of the best practical aids of the year was 'The Polytunnel Book'. Irish News 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.

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.

It's helping me get my polytunnel together and can't wait to follow the seasons for planting. I find it very helping in all aspects of greenhouse growing.
