The description of this book said that the book included plans and instructions for building greenhouses. While it had beautiful photographs of traditional glass greenhouses, which is what I want to build, the "plans" were for plastic covered greenhouses over pvc pipe. Had I been able to "look inside" more of the book, I would have saved my money. This book, while pretty, is functionless. What a disappointment.
After having read several greenhouse books, I found this one to be better than all of the rest. It has very good illustrations and really practical ideas for both greenhouses and garden sheds. I wish I had invested in this book before I started building a greenhouse...
this book show great pics of greenhouses, from small country sheds to palatial glass atrium buildings. Only wish there were blueprints for some of the smaller ones.
I originally borrowed this book from the library and once I had read it, i just had to have it. It contains everything you could want to know about greenhouses including where to position it, structure design options, internal layout options,heating, watering,lighting,as well as growing plants, flowers and vegetables,the lot. It also covers cold frames and hot frames as well as garden sheds. Whether you are planning to build your own or buy a greenhouse kit, this book will still provide lots of information you need to know to be successful with greenhouse growing.
I have thought of building a hoop house for years. This book makes is so easy to plan and construct! It is loaded with easy, practical ideas to get you started.
This is the kind of book for amateurs (this is my case) so if you are clueless about how to start a greenhouse and wich one is the best kind for you??? this is your book, but if you are looking for something more than that, is better you look another title.The book from the beguine to the end is very clear, easy vocabulary and with good pictures and sketches.Pro: everything I wrote aboveNeg: lacking of guidance in the pic and more detail about how to do it.from a scale from 0 to 10 this book is easily an 8
A lot more information than what is offered on the internet for actually building including really great plans. I'm pretty new to the world of building things so for me it was exactly what I needed.
