Jack First is an experienced horticulturalist who has pioneered, developed, and fully tested hot bed gardening methods.. His hot beds have been featured on BBC TV's Gardener's World. He works with volunteers on a large plot in Keighley, Yorkshire, and is the sole supplier to his local whole-food shop of out-of-season greens, new potatoes, and salads.

Hot beds are nothing new - they were used by the Victorians and even by the Romans. By reviving and modernizing this ancient vegetable-growing method, Jack First produces healthy plants that crop at least two months earlier than conventionally grown vegetables, even in his native Yorkshire, England.

This practical, illustrated guide has everything you need to understand about how to utilize this highly productive, low-cost, year-round, eco-friendly gardening technique. Straightforward explanations, diagrams, and examples show how the natural process of decay can be harnessed to enable out-of-season growing without using energy from fossil fuels or elaborate equipment.

With some stable manure (there are also alternative options), an easy-to-construct frame, and a small space to build your bed, you can revolutionize your vegetable growing and be harvesting salads in March and potatoes early in April.
