Best-selling author Niki Jabbour provides an essential, in-depth guide to creating controlled growing spaces for productive vegetable gardening, using row covers, shade cloth, low tunnels, cold frames, hoophouses, and more.
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 is who I repeatedly turn to for the nudge, and knowledge, to push the zone a little, stretch the season at either end, protect the plants, and get more, more, more from my efforts.”
— Margaret Roach, author of A Way to Garden

Growing Under Cover is my new favorite resource. It has all the knowledge you need to take the guesswork out of extending the season. Essential reading for learning how to use covers to extend the season, control pests naturally, and keep your garden growing strong.”
— Joe Lamp’l, executive producer and host of Growing a Greener World

“I can see Growing Under Cover becoming well-worn as it accompanies me throughout the garden in every season. I’m so excited to up my raised bed–garden game with Niki’s techniques and suggestions for materials — from preventing pests to overwintering crops — so I can enjoy fresh, healthy veggies all year long.”
— Tara Nolan, author of Raised Bed Revolution

Growing Under Cover is Niki Jabbour’s most beautiful book yet! It’s full of practical advice for any backyard food grower, from newbie to Jedi level, small yard to heavy-duty producer. Niki’s latest offering shares information that’s digestible to a gardener with any size plot while dropping a trail of aspirational breadcrumbs on how one could do more (and grow more!). This book is like getting smart, juicy gardening advice from a friend.”
— Amanda Thomsen, author of Backyard Adventure and Kiss My Aster

"[Jabbour] offers a helpful guide to creating enclosures for vegetable gardens, in order to 'grow more food for a longer period of time, grow higher-quality plants bothered by fewer pests and diseases, and mitigate the stresses caused by cold, heat, and extreme weather...' Her guidance will prove invaluable for vegetable gardeners determined to safeguard and prolong a robust harvest throughout the year."
