This is a brillant book for anybody who has a polytunnel. I bought it when I first got my tunnel 8 years ago and it was my guide to success. It answered all my questions and had some great advice. I referred to this book daily in the beginning and still use it weekly now 8 years later. It tells you what to plant and when. It has a month by month guide as what need to be done in order to get the most out of your tunnel. This book is a minefield of information. A must have for anybody who has a polytunnel.

Being new to the joys of the polytunnel and not knowing anyone else who has one, I needed help. This assistance came in the form of a book the Poytunnel book - by Joce Russell. Ordered simply and despatched smartly, within days I was up and running and will be for many years to come. Great service from quickcrop as always. I have six of their raised beds so I should know.

Hi, I have just started growing vegetables in my polytunnel, but the lettuce is bolting and my dwarf runner beans do not appear to be setting. I am watering every day - is there anything I can do to stop this. Thanks Maralyn Radice
