"This friendly primer is really focused on the art of greenhouse gardening, and presents its challenges as
opportunities for delight."
From the Publisher
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. This revised edition
includes more detailed information on greenhouse construction, heating options, and interior design. An expanded section
on pest and disease control features updated information on integrated pest management (IPM) for those who prefer to
control bad bugs with good bugs rather than with toxic pesticides. Smith introduces you to the latest greenhouse
gadgets, from glazing materials, to fans and vents, to misters and watering devices. A new section on orchids introduces
the basic orchid families and provides practical advice for growing the species successfully. This edition includes more
than 250 new and exquisite illustrations, plus copious instructive photos and charts, detailed appendixes listing garden
associations; suppliers (with website addresses); climate information; helpful references, and more.
