Description


“A garden should be easy and fun to care for—don’t complicate things unnecessarily.” This is the slogan of author Inger Palmstierna. In Greenhouse Vegetable Gardening, she helps readers find the joy of cultivating in their very own greenhouses. Palmstierna is a gardening authority with vast knowledge on everything that grows. With infectious enthusiasm, this garden writer and horticulturist explains how to cultivate a successful garden or orchard.

The greenhouse is the place where green thumbs are realized and your imagination can run wild. Palmstierna believes: “The greenhouse provides opportunities, but does not demand.” Greenhouse Vegetable Gardening is an accessible book with many beautiful pictures and practical instructions. The topics covered include:

• Building and decorating your own greenhouse
• Training seedlings and early plant development
• How to sow, grow, and winter plants
• How to harvest vegetables and herbs
• How to cultivate summer flowers for planting
• And more!

In addition to providing a garden year-round, the greenhouse can also be a beautiful addition to your yard and can be customized to match your tastes. You’ll learn the basics on what to consider when buying, laying the foundations for, and decorating your greenhouse—as well as how to plan and use one. Soon after you’ll be ready to explore the many types of vegetables and flowering plants that thrive in greenhouses.

So get ready to enjoy fresh vegetables and flowers year-round!
