Are you using your polytunnel to its full potential? If so you'll be harvesting fresh crops all year round - sweet potatoes and late celery in November; winter radish, baby carrots and celeriac in early February; salads leaves right through the winter. Even in the `hungry gap' you'll have a choice of new potatoes, pak choi, peas, tender cabbages, beetroot and more.

* a detailed crop-by-crop guide to the growing year
* dedicated chapters on growing for each season, including the `hungry gap'
* a sowing and harvesting calendar to help with planning.
