Gardening 101 : Soil The Foundation

Plant problems start in the soil. Working with Australia’s best land managers revealed two lessons: they took excellent care of the plants above the ground, but knew little about the soil beneath. Gathering over ten years of academic and commercial experience, this eBook presents my methodology for understanding and improving soil to the home gardener.

For eight years I worked with land managers to improve their gardens, parks, sports fields, and farms. Most managers had two things in common – they took excellent care of the plants above the ground, but knew little about the soil beneath.

Hence Gardening 101: Soil – The Foundation was born. Good gardening starts in the soil. You wouldn’t build a house on a poor foundation, and neither should you garden on poor soil.

This book presents all the information I have presented to land mangers over the years. You will learn the same tests I use when assessing and soil, how to identify problems, and how to fix them.

Gardening 101 will teach you about:

  • pH and salinity
  • Plant nutrition
  • Organic matter
  • Soil texture and structure
  • Life in the soil (worms, bugs, microbes)
  • Worm farms
  • Composting
  • Assessing your soil
  • Preparing your garden for planting
  • Water wise gardening
