"Caring for Soil supports the traditional practice of allowing the natural world to help stablise the soil's fertility in order to grow good quality garden and farm crops. Alec demonstrates how in order to do this, it makes good sense to use available 'water' residues. Understanding how and why these materials work in the way they do gives gardeners control over their soil - and leads to what every gardener desires - healthier, more beautiful and longer-lasting plants."--BOOK COVER.
