Maximise your garden, whatever you grow in it, with some Swedish expertise.

Plants need nutrients to grow, flower and bear fruit, nutrients that can be found in offal, the sea, fire, rocks, rubbish and, of course, dung heaps. Tina Råman digs into every aspect of nurturing your soil, from chemistry and biology to history and philosophy, giving you practical advice, generous tips and above all masses of inspiration. She lifts the lid on old and reliable fertilisation methods and opens the doors to new resource-efficient and environmentally-smart cultivation techniques.

Good Soil doesn't look like a typical gardening book but it's a book that everyone interested in gardening needs.

Its the basis of a good garden. Soil. And this book tells you how to get that good soil: manure and compost and lots of it. The gardener with the green thumb knows this almost instinctively: to feed you plants you must feed your soil. A good book especially for the novice gardener.
