With our unpredictable weather, there’s never been a better time to cultivate vegetables under shelter. Experienced grower, Klaus Laitenberger shows how to use the heat and shelter of a greenhouse or polytunnel to maximise crop production and supply tasty, healthy food throughout the year. He gives full details of sowing, planting, spacing and harvesting for all our best-loved herbs and vegetables, as well as introducing exotic newcomers such as pepino and yacon.

What makes it unusual, if not unique, is that it's firmly based on hands-on experience gained in one of the more difficult parts of the country for growing things ... although it's aimed at beginners I learned a lot from it, and I'm hardly a beginner at this stage.
Dick Warner, Irish Examiner
An inspiring new book ... lays out a successional growing programme, month-by-month, vegetable-by-vegetable which will almost double the productivity of the plot and really keep you in vegetables all year round.
Caroline Foley, Guardian
An accessible and essential guide to growing undercover, it offers fluff-free growing instructions and a monthly planner for everyday and unusual crops year round.
