A comprehensive gardeners guide to growing over 50 vegetables. Ideal for enthusiastic amateur gardeners, and experienced professionals alike. Covering the essentials of planting, spacing, plant care, harvesting, storing, different varieties and potential problems with each variety, this invaluable app will soon have your table full of delicious home grown vegetables!

Klaus Laitenberger - the author of this app - has written 3 books on growing vegetables - here's what other people have had to say about his work:

"Klaus Laitenberger has already written a general book on vegetable gardening and started a seed company. Now he's produced a new book called "Vegetables for the Polytunnel and Greenhouse". What makes it unusual, if not unique, is that it's firmly based on hands-on experience gained in one of the more difficult parts of the country for growing things.

The approach is strictly organic, although most of the information is also relevant to gardeners who are not as purist. It's self-published but excellently laid out and beautifully illustrated. He writes in a clear and orderly way in English that is fluent but occasionally has a turn of phrase that reminds you that it's not his first language. And, although it's aimed at beginners I learnt a lot from it, and I'm hardly a beginner at this
stage." - Dick Warner - Irish Examiner

'I was brought up short when I came across an inspiring new book this week 'Vegetables of the Polytunnel and Greenhouse' by Klaus Laitenberger. Formerly the Head Gardener at the Organic Centre at Rossinver, Co. Leitrim he has been growing vegetables organically for 20 years in the UK and Ireland. He lays out a successional growing programme, month-by-month, vegetable-by-vegetable which will almost double the productivity of the plot and really keep you in vegetables all year round.' Caroline Foley - The Guardian

    I came across this guy via the excellent tutorials he has done for Quickcrop so this is hugely helpful and very cheap for what amounts to everything you need on one app. So easy to use and very portable. Thank you.

    Extremely detailed app - great pictures and descriptions of exactly how to sow and harvest tons of vegetables, with an emphasis on how much to grow to feed a family. Very useful.
