This soil course is the basis for any successful gardening, explaining what great soil is and how you can judge soil by feel and a simple field test.
You will learn how to improve your soils and recognise from the leaves of your plants what the soil is lacking in. The second part of the topic discusses fertilisers, composting and how careful management will improve not only the quality of your food but the environment as a whole.
