This companion volume to Freeman's Building Your Own Greenhouse (Stackpole, 1997) explains how to raise plants in a home greenhouse. Freeman, who designed and built his own greenhouse, begins with chapters on types of greenhouses, equipment, soil, air, water, heat, light, pests, and diseases. The rest of the book covers growing seedlings for transplanting into the outdoor garden and raising vegetables and herbs in the greenhouse. Freeman lists vegetable, flower, and herb species suitable for growing to maturity in a greenhouse. He also touches on growing houseplants and cut flowers, but specialty plants like orchids and African violets are beyond the scope of the book. Although Freeman refers readers to his earlier book for further information in a few places, this practical introduction to greenhouse gardening is recommended for public and botanical libraries whether or not they own his previous book.?Sue O'Brien, Downers Grove P.L., IL

Another thing that bothered me was that some of the author's opinions went against everything I have ever seen in my experience. For example, ease of care in keeping kalanchoes blooming and alive. I have found them to be one of the easiest of plants to keep blooming. The author said they are rather hard to get to rebloom and that many people throw them away after blooming. They grow like weeds. I've had them for years and they rebloom constantly. They do extremely well in greenhouses. This was just one example of info I had a problem with.
The really basic info presented and the kalanchoe differences made this a book I won't be consulting in the future.
out. Plain english, sense of humor,...........well, fun! Gardening in your Greenhouse is the best
book out there for newbe's like myself.
The down to earth, practical approach of the author is what I like.
