“A breakthrough book. No comprehensive horticultural library should be without it.” —American Gardener
When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure the microbial life that sustains plants, and then become increasingly dependent on an arsenal of toxic substances. Teaming with Microbes offers an alternative to this vicious circle, and details how to garden in a way that strengthens, rather than destroys, the soil food web. You’ll discover that healthy soil is teeming with life—not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. This must-have guide is for everyone, from those devoted to organic gardening techniques to weekend gardeners who simply want to grow healthy plants without resorting to chemicals.
Teaming with Microbes
What a legend
Truly an enlightening read!
If you have the slightest interest in the planet you live on, gardening, or simply curious about the ground you walk on this is a book for you. A fun and very informative read.
If you are looking for the knowledge you need to go organic you will it all in this book. Additionally you will find the why, which for me is the crux of understanding both how grow organically and what to avoid. The information is easy to understand and thorough. as a long time organic gardener I felt like my eyes are just now seeing!
It's one of those hard to put down books you get from time to time. The authors were also thoughtful enough to provide resource information and one of the best indexes i have seen in a very long time.
Makes an excellent gift too. Everyone I have given this book too has loved it. Do yourself, family, garden & yard a favor and buy this book!
Be sure to have a note pad handy as there are many observations you will want to note.
