The ancient method of growing vegetables in hot
beds, used by the Victorians and by the Romans, harnesses the natural
process of decay to cultivate out-of-season crops. Jack First has
revived and modernised this remarkable technique, and produces healthy
vegetables at least two months earlier than conventionally grown crops.With just stable manure (or alternatives), a
simple frame and a small space to build your bed, you can be harvesting
salads in March and potatoes in early April.
