Product Details

Following on from his excellent books Teaming with Microbes and Teaming with Nutrients, best-selling gardening author and organic gardener Jeff Lowenfels delves into the vital role played by fungi in plant growth.

Almost all land plants (80-95%) form crucial symbiotic relationships with mycorrhizal fungi.  The plants provide carbon for the fungi, and the fungi help the plant roots absorb water and nutrients critical for growth.  'In fact, many plants would probably not exist without their fungal partners.' (p 8)

Think about that.  Most of what you eat today relies on mycorrhizal fungi for its production.  

But it's only been in recent decades that the vital importance of mycorrhizal fungi has become widely known.  

In this excellent book, Lowenfels clearly explains these complex interactions in a straightforward and engaging way, making this important information easily accessible.

Harnessing this plant-fungi relationship can be used at any scale - home garden, broad-acre agriculture, forestry...and of course, aquaponics!

The interwoven relationship with fungi provides huge benefits to the plants, including:

  • Increased uptake of nutrients
  • Improved drought tolerance
  • Resistance to disease
  • Earlier and increased fruiting

This book gives you the information you need to start getting these benefits for yourself.

Full-colour images, diagrams and tables provide visual support to the text.  For example, photos showing plant-growth comparison with and without fungi make a potent statement!

Fungi are already in your garden!  Maximise their benefits by understanding where they are, what they do, and how you can support them.  Learn how to apply the core principles for healthier, hardier, better-performing plants.
