Accessible Greenhouse Gardening

Bought this as my wife and I recently moved into a unit with a greenhouse, and wanted to take advantage of it and learn how to grow vegetables for a more self sufficient lifestyle. Black Thumb Greenhouse is a great, in depth break down of this niche of homesteading, and each consideration and process is made easy to apply for first time practitioners. We are planning to apply most of if not all the info we learned from this in the coming months.

The narrator is easy to understand and engaging, and the content is obviously well researched and born of years of experience!

Chalk full of useful info on greenhouses including: it’s history and benefits, things to consider when buying one, equipment you’ll need, how to run one efficiently, everything you need to know about seeds and the best plants to grow in greenhouses.

A healthier way to live

I like to buy organic produce when I can afford it but it's getting more and more expensive to do so. I thought starting a greenhouse would be too hard but after reading this book I find it's not as difficult as I thought it would be. This book taught me the produce at the supermarket isn't very nutritious. The one fact I learned in this book that resonated with me was that produce has 40% fewer vitamins and nutrients than 70 years ago. That was all I needed to hear. This book gave me the push I needed to start a greenhouse and I can't wait to reep the benefits.

Great for beginners!

I have always wanted to have my own garden but have been intimidated because I didn't know where to start. This book really makes things simple and easy to understand. Even the concepts I thought would be more complicated have really been explained in a way that I understand. I am so glad I started to get into gardening and I owe it all to this book!

Everyone should have this audio in their library

The reason this audio is critical today is the area of focus: greenhouse. It is very critical for everyone to understand what is greenhouse and what are the benefits. That is because we are all impacted by climate change and global warming, the result of our polluting behaviour. I believe even if you don't have a backyard, this audio is still relevant from the knowledge and awareness perspectives, For those that decided to start their gardening journey, the audio is a golden resource. The approach taken by the author is made to leverage beginners' skills and turn them into green gardening heroes. There are lots of interesting contents and tips in the book such as the tools, how to optimize the space, or very importantly, planning.

Highly recommend !!

Problems Solved!

This audiobook solved the problems I had with decisions on what kind of greenhouse to build, its location, irrigation and heating,
If it weren't for this book, I would have made a crucial mistake in the location of my greenhouse. I now have each step in making this dream a reality.

Gamechanger!

I have been notorious for killing plants, either by over-loving them or not giving enough care. After listening to this book I was confident enough to try my hand at starting new plants and reviving some of the underloved plants. Low and behold I now have a green thriving greenhouse and I am able to sustain it long-term for the first time in my life!!

Amazing!

This Audiobook is exactly what I have been looking for, For some reason every time we grow Aloe, they die, and yet they are supposed to be easy plants to grow lol, this book will definitely fix that problem, Turns out you can show a plant to much love lol sometimes they like a little neglect apparently (when the time is right of course) 10/10 I highly recommend this audiobook to any of you learning black thumb gardeners.
