Soils and plants are inseparable in a garden. What happens “down-under” in the soil controls what plants can do. Vigorous, healthy plant growth is possible only on soils that can provide all the essential nutrients. “Gardening Down-under” provides: information on soils and potting mixes. It shows why these media are the way they are, how they “work” and how you can manage and improve them; detailed information about fertilisers; many quick “recipes” for activities such as making compost, overcoming water repellency, applying water and fertiliser, and altering pH; answers to questions about soils, potting mixes and fertilisers; and colour guides to nutrient deficiencies.
