The Joyce and Ben Russel team 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 The Polytunnel Book is the most comprehensive, practical month-to-month growing guide to polytunnel gardening available.

It tells what to do and when to do it, in order to grow the best fruit and vegetables all-year-round. 300 colour photographs illustrate the wealth of practical tips and techniques as well as celebrating what can be achieved.
