10 Reviews
The most comprehensive book on greenhouse gardening available today. Today, greenhouses and sunrooms are real living spaces where gardeners spend as much time with a book and a cup of coffee as they do with a watering can and a pair of pruning shears. In this fully revised edition of a best-selling classic, veteran gardener Shane Smith embraces this new "lifestyle" approach to greenhouse gardening. Through lively writing that balances wit with commonsense advice, Smith draws on his more than 20 years' experience to cover everything you need to know to establish a charming and productive greenhouse.

“Exceptionally comprehensive . . . a joy to read.”—Hobby Greenhouse Association

I have a new greenhouse and have been looking for a comprehensive resource to help me plan how to garden. This book covers everything I needed to know to start and maintain plants that would otherwise not be productive in my climate zone. Nicely written and very easy to follow. Read full review
