Greenhouses allow seedlings and cuttings to take root before planting in the ground, and favorite plants to grow year round.

Written for the average backyard gardener, this book explains how to maximize a greenhouse. The first section discusses general information such as equipment and pest control. The next section focuses on seed starting and transplanting. Two sections follow on growing houseplants and crops in a greenhouse. It wraps up with a short chapter on alternative uses for a greenhouse, such as a tool shed or a location for a hot tub. Dozens of black-and-white drawings.
