Increasingly unpredictable weather patterns and pest infestations are challenging today’s vegetable gardeners. But best-selling author Niki Jabbour has a solution: Growing Under Cover. In this in-depth guide, Jabbour shows how to use small solutions like cloches, row covers, shade cloth, cold frames, and hoophouses, as well as larger protective structures like greenhouses and polytunnels, to create controlled growing spaces for vegetables to thrive.

Photographed in her own super-productive garden, Jabbour highlights the many benefits of using protective covers to plant earlier, eliminate pests, and harvest a healthier, heartier bounty year round. With enthusiasm, inventive techniques, and proven, firsthand knowledge, this book provides invaluable advice from a popular and widely respected gardening authority.

Niki Jabbour is the award-winning author of The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener (American Horticultural Society Book Award), Groundbreaking Food Gardens, and Niki Jabbour’s Veggie Garden Remix (American Horticultural Society Book Award). Her latest book is Growing Under Cover (December 2020) and explores how simple garden covers can be used to grow more food and protect from bad weather, frost and pests like insects, deer, and rabbits.
