Everything in the garden starts with the soil. Understanding this essential element is your key to success in growing everything from orchids to okra, but it doesn't have to be complicated. This course offers a user friendly take on the science and art of creating soils for a successful garden using basic techniques developed over generations. From sand and clay to alkalinity and fertility, learn the key aspects of soils, how they interact to affect your soil's ability to support plants, and some basic things you can do to for healthier, more productive flowers, vegetables and fruit.
