1372 ways to add fertility to your soil

Jackie FrenchISBN: 9780947214449PB, 184pp, $18.95

In this ground-breaking book, French, writing in her appealing and earthy style, provides hundreds of suggestions and strategies for maintaining, improving and restoring health to the soil. Apart from general chapters on different soils and their deficiencies, and what plants need from the soil, there are separate chapters on green manure, free-range manure (including discussions on worms and dung beetles), compost, and mulch. Finally, Jackie looks at 10 different plots of land (from steep slopes to tropical, dry and dead gardens), their needs and deficiencies, and how to remedy them.
