Greenhouse gardening is fast becoming a sustainable way of growing everything - from ornamental tropical plants to valuable crops - without having to be too concerned about the changing weather and seasons. Inside a greenhouse, the environmental conditions can be regulated to match the exact requirements for plant growth, development, and maturity. There are so many good things that you can get out of greenhouse gardening. You can grow out-of-season crops, such as luscious strawberries in the middle of winter or juicy lettuce and sweet apples in the middle of summer. You can cultivate plants that are not locally grown, such as tropical orchids in the middle of the Northern Hemisphere or delicate winter blooms in a greenhouse in the humid South. With a well-planned and well-maintained greenhouse, you can have a steady supply of food for you and your family for an entire year. You can also opt to grow more to give to friends and neighbors or to sell at local farmers' markets.
But for all this to happen, you must learn a few basic things about greenhouse gardening. This book is the ultimate greenhouse gardening guide for beginners. Here is a preview of what you will learn:
The best strategies for selecting the perfect spot to build your greenhouse - there are so many things to consider when it comes to site selection
How to prepare the soil for greenhouse growing before planting your desired plants
How to regulate internal greenhouse conditions, including what environmental factors to be concerned about
Guide to what plants to choose, when to plant, and how much to plant
How to maintain the greenhouse, from cleaning to keeping the structural integrity
Most of all, you will learn insider tips and tricks for beginners and some expert advice on all things concerning greenhouse management and gardening.

Youthful exuberance needs some direction and editing
This is not a book, but an essay. The essay though good and informative needs some editing to remove colloquially language. Also several words are misuse or just pronounced incorrectly. Yes, one know what the author and performer means, but these error are a bit jarring, thus I recommend a director. This is all meant as constructive criticism. For a youthful exercise is was quite good, the information is at the level of Wikipedia, correct but sometime expressed without understanding. I do wish that example of the authors meaning was used more.
