Publisher's Summary

The complete guide to starting a home greenhouse.

If you have sufficient room for a greenhouse, this can be a beautiful way to gather, month after month, endless fruits and veggies. It may seem overwhelming to learn how to operate your own greenhouse, but it's surprisingly simple and enjoyable.

Nowadays, greenhouses and sunrooms are real living spaces where gardeners spend as much time with a book or a cup of tea or coffee, as with a watering can or a couple of pruning shears.

Greenhouses offer the best way for newbies to practice their own gardening without thinking about external factors and the quality of the soil. This book discusses how to get started and how you don't have to be an architect in order to install your own greenhouse.

With this audiobook, you'll learn how to:

  • Design your greenhouse
  • Build your own greenhouse
  • Create your own planting beds
  • Handle different climatic plants
  • Grow everything, from tropical citrus plants to wine grapevines, and anything else that you can imagine

Every chapter is super easy to follow, and the book flows naturally. Early chapters talk about the benefits of building your own greenhouse, the different styles, and a step-by-step guide. You must learn how to build a greenhouse first, how to set up plants, and when to get your first seeds to grow.

If you want tons of fruit and veggies in your backyard, then you are going to want to listen to Greenhouse Gardening.

Looking to adding a green house to my yard.

Only rated 4 because there were some parts that did not interest me. The
Information is written in manner that many can understand, the wording is simple and interesting. I really liked that there are many self-help instructions. This is a great starter book, with lots of information.

Easy to listen, good pics

This is a good beginner book, with lots of nice pictures. It seems to focus more on larger green houses rather than smaller ones for back yards. It has several good ideas in it.

Recommended

As someone who has previously lived in a warmer climate it was essential for me to find out how to manage my new greenhouse now I'm back in the UK. Excellent book for anyone who has never had one before. I recommend it.

Great info, not DYI for amateurs

The perfect addition to my plans for my passive house. Easy to understand, quite complete. But be careful, it's not really a DIY book; getting one built is ot for the amateur enthusiast. It's a bit of a promo for the company that builds zero net greenhouses.
