Publisher's summary

You too can master the secrets of soil to grow healthy plants and bountiful, nutritious produce.

Home to beneficial microorganisms and packed densely with nutrients, soil is the perfect growing medium that acts as a personal nutritionist to the plants it supports, allowing them to thrive naturally.

It also provides the right structure for helping the roots to grow, and in turn, these supply the leaves with water and nutrients, giving way to a bountiful harvest of fruits and vegetables.

But when your soil is lacking in quality, or gets damaged due to certain gardening practices, it can no longer promote plant growth.

In this definitive guide to working with soil, you’ll discover:

  • Soil science: demystified and simplified–discover the microscopic secrets that give life to your garden.
  • The natural structure of soil–find out what makes soil the perfect cocktail for supporting life.
  • Why you should test your garden soil before planting (plus various DIY tests that you can easily perform on your own without any special equipment).
  • Soil amendments 101: fix your soil’s nutrient profile, structure, and quality by following these simple yet effective guidelines.
  • The why, how, and when of fertilizers (including recommendations on what to use).
  • Practical soil-friendly gardening tips and practices that you can implement today.
  • The ultimate mulching and composting guide–enrich your soil in an organic way, and make your own composts by following the step by step techniques included.
  • And much more!

Soil health is intimately linked to plant health…and ultimately, to yours too. Are you ready to use soil science to give a boost to your garden?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
