Building Soils Naturally

How to Create an Organic Garden That's Exploding with Life, Diversity and Exceptionally Nutrient-Dense Food Whether you're an experienced gardener or just getting started, you are likely to encounter some perplexing (and common) setbacks – certain fruit and vegetable plants that don't produce the amazing taste and big yields that you'd hoped for, ornamental plants that fail to thrive as abundantly as they should, and plant predators that chew your plants to the ground. All of these issues point to plants that aren't at their optimum health. What could be wrong? Plants may be lacking in proper nutrition, missing beneficial microorganism companions, or short of the energy they need to reach their full nutrient-dense potential. The advice most often given by those in the know is “start with the soil,” but what specific steps should you take to really improve soil to optimum health? Building Soils Naturally shows how to create productive, living soil using a simple, practical, hands-on plan that includes: • Using compost and microbial inoculants to balance the soil food web, because these organisms nourish and protect plants • Controlling plant predators and weeds forever, without chemicals, by focusing on the root cause of the infestation problem • Soil testing and full-spectrum organic fertilizing, because balancing soil nutrients is crucial for healthy plants Building Soils Naturally outlines proven, sustainable methods for growing healthy food and plants that contribute to a healthy planet and a healthy you. Grow vigorous, more pest-resistant vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants by using complete and balanced nutrients – far beyond the simplistic, imbalanced concept of NPK. Healthy soil doesn't happen just by composting, fertilizing or companion planting. It happens by using a holistic approach – outlined in this book and crafted right in your garden.
