Description

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.

The author

The author Tina Råman is a passionate amateur gardener with both feet on the ground; one foot in the flowerbed and the other in the dung heap.
