IMPROVING YOUR GARDEN Through Soil Management

The organizer of the Soil Analysis Service shares his knowledge with the earnest gardener, willing to apply this knowledge to improving his soil- and getting better results from his garden. The essentials of good soil -- what the ingredients contribute- how to approach that 100% desirable for top crop expectancy, all this adds up to a practical guide to making soil tests, and arriving at a sound basis for improving your soil. The addition of organics, with emphasis on organic rather than chemical fertilizer, the when, what and how of applying fertilizer, the analysis of your garden area and dividing it into zones on the basis of varying pH values -- these are the factors that differentiate this from most gardening books. The last half, approximately, is devoted to growing vegetables, berries, lawn, flowers, with the soil reaction in pH indicated for each item included.
