Buchrückseite

Smart gardeners know that soil is anything but an inert substance. Healthy soil is teeming with life not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure the microbial life that sustains healthy plants, and thus become increasingly dependent on an arsenal of artificial substances, many of them toxic to humans as well as other forms of life. But there is an alternative to this vicious circle: to garden in a way that strengthens, rather than destroys, the soil food web the complex world of soil-dwelling organisms whose interactions create a nurturing environment for plants. By eschewing jargon and overly technical language, the authors make the benefits of cultivating the soil food web available to a wide audience, from devotees of organic gardening techniques to weekend gardeners who simply want to grow healthy, vigorous plants without resorting to chemicals.

This revised edition updates the original text and includes two completely new chapters on mycorrhizae (beneficial associations fungi form with green-leaved plants) and archaea (single-celled organisms once thought to be allied to bacteria).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just read it! 17. Mai 2013
Von Martha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Just read it" is Lowenfels advice in the Introduction to "Teaming with Nutrients" and I second that.

Any gardener who has thought about how their plants actually eat the food we presume we are providing, will want to make time to read and think about "Teaming with Nutrients."

Not to ruin the ending for you, but here's a spoiler alert: We don't provide their food. Just as they have done for millions of years, plants can and do feed themselves. However, we gardeners can interfere with their ability to feed themselves by causing problems for them. Understanding their complexities is like gaining a deeper understanding of the people we want to know - we can give them more of what they need and avoid the practices that can do them harm.

Topics covered include: Plant cell parts, the basic chemistry involved in plant nutrients, the botany of nutrient-usage by plant tissues/organs, the 17-essential elements (macronutrients and micronutrients), how water moves through the soil and into the plant stems and leaves, nutrient movement within plants, how to apply the science you just learned to your gardening practices, and, recommended fertilizer recipes.

As a non-science major, I found the book challenging to read. As a gardener who is fascinated by the wonder of plants, I found the challenge worth my effort. If you, like me, are not a scientist and are not up-to-date on the latest cellular biology discoveries, you will thank Lowenfels many times for the useful 5-page Glossary in the back.

Your awe of plants and the lives they lead will increase if you "just read it" and you'll never garden the same old way again.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Tough read 20. Februar 2014
Von TJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is PhD level information.
This is not a gardeners quick read.
Purchase Jeff's other book instead. I love "Teaming with Microbes" It is a must read for EVERYONE, not just gardeners. I purchased this book because microbes was such a great read. This book is a significantly slower read, but provides you with more information than you can handle. Microbes was a fascinating book that I have read cover to cover 2x and constantly refer to. I recommend Microbes to all my friends. This one is just too slow and difficult to read and there isn't enough practical information for the common gardener.
Microbes should be distributed throughout America and on every dirt worshiping friends gift list.

Von Michael Krasula - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I highly recommend both Teaming with Nutrients and Teaming with Microbes as I gained so much from each book and refer to Jeff's first book often and likely will do the same with this most recent book! Well done and thank you!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen this ' Teaming with Nutrients ' book is an exceptional Gardening resource to diligently use... 16. November 2015
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The author did a really good job explaining fundamental Plant biology in such an easy-to-follow style. if owed no other Garden book but THIS one, people would be well on their way to growing bounteous Nutritious harvests. And if every child was mentored by their parents as good examples, plus taught in school science classes these basic matters, we'd have more healthy populations. Thank you!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant in its accessibility 17. März 2014
Von Gary J. Figueroa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As a professional horticulturist I was seeking some updated information on "organic" sources of nutrition and found it in this text. A very good read which earned my appreciation for the fact that the writing allows for the novice to gain access to what might otherwise be a bit too technical information for the layperson. A timely release, excellent presentation and useful reference material serve to make my professional life appropriately informed which certainly has translated into my being able to explain the nuances of plant nutrition via the use of "organic" amendments so as to intelligently direct my customer base into making smarter choices for their landscape, garden and home environment. For you serious gardeners and reactionary "organic" die-hards this book will keep you better informed. Hugely recommended.
