By Jeff Lowenfels
Just as he demystified the soil food web in his ground-breaking book Teaming with Microbes, in this new work Jeff Lowenfels explains the basics of plant nutrition from an organic gardener’s perspective. Most gardeners realize that plants need to be fed but know little or nothing about the nature of the nutrients and the mechanisms involved.
- Introduction to the plant cell and some basic chemistry
- The nutrients and how they move through a plant
- The molecules of life
- Factors influencing nutrient availability
- Importance of soil testing
