Discover many practical solutions for the modern home gardener, with topics such as protection from wind, rain, and freezing temperatures. Most of the methods are easy to apply, and inexpensive as well. Find out about the types of permanent garden structures, small portable greenhouses and a variety of temporary plant covers to protect your plants from frost, wind, disease and even predators.

Included are directions for building your own simple cloches, hoop tunnels and cold frames. The resource section includes links to downloadable plans for building your own greenhouse.

Here’s one of the 5 Star reviews it has received:

Format:Kindle Edition
“One thing I really like about this book is the historical perspective on how protective gardening evolved from earliest times. The author discusses how the Romans as early as 20BC used simple but effective methods for protecting plants from extreme weather conditions.

The author gives many practical solutions for the modern home gardener, and covers areas such as; wind, rain, and freezing temperatures, with most all of her approaches being easy to apply, and inexpensive as well.

The history and types of greenhouses are discussed, including the basics on greenhouse design that anyone thinking of building their own will find immensely helpful. There is even a section on the various types of watering systems and the ideal situation that each one works best with.

This is a great book for anyone wishing to get involved with more sophisticated types of home gardening, or those who want to take the “next big step” and build their own greenhouse from the ground up.”
