Product Details

You know plants need 'food', but do you really know about the nutrients involved?

  • What are they?
  • How do they work?
  • How do they get into the plants?
  • What do they do once they're there?

This book will answer your questions!

In down-to-earth language, Lowenfels explains the science of how plant cells work, what nutrients they require and how they move through the plant, and how to provide what your plants require for optimal growth.

He keeps the biology, chemistry and botany as simple as possible and steps you through it so you can understand what you need to know without being overwhelmed.

Each chapter starts with a list of the main points covered in that chapter, including brief explanations, and finishes with a summary of the main points again, highlighting the most important information related to them.  Great for helping you navigate unfamiliar territory, or revise things you've already learned.

Full-colour photos and diagrams throughout the book also help explain and illustrate the text.

Solve some gardening mysteries!

  • Why DO plants do badly in the heat or cold, even when they have adequate water?  
  • Why is the pH of the growing medium so important?  (A big one for aquaponics!)
  • What is it about air around the plant roots?
  • What's the best time to feed plants?

Lowenfels covers these and other aspects of plant growth to help you get the best out of your plants.

Really rev up your garden - whether regular or aqupaonic - by understanding just what is going on inside your plants!
