The Polytunnel Book
Joyce Russell & Ben Russell
Written by local gardening expert Joyce Russell, The Polytunnel Book is perfect for people living in West Cork and similar climates who want to learn how to get more out of their polytunnels.
The resurgence in home food production has generated a dramatic increase of interest in growing under cover. The season is far longer (year-round for salads and some vegetables) and you can grow exciting fruit and vegetables that aren't viable outdoors.
Thanks to the polytunnel, covered growing is now available to all. And sales of polytunnels are burgeoning, as gardeners and allotment-holders realise that they could be growing more food (and more exotic food) on a smaller plot, whatever the weather outside is doing. The Polytunnel Book is the first comprehensive, practical illustrated guide to polytunnel gardening, for both beginners and experienced gardeners.
