The author provides an affordable, step-by-step approach to improving your soil both before and after you start your garden (or plant a tree). The author shows how improving the soil will cut down on pests, fertilize your plants, cut down on weeds, etc.
The author provides good tips for composting. (Composting is very easy. The worms and insects do the actual work.)
The book provides tables and information regarding different types of fertilizer, soil acidity, etc. The book describes which types of plants go with which types of soil. Along the way, you will learn a little bit of chemistry, botany and biology. While the book is definitely not too technical, portions would be of interest to anyone who is beginning to study the natural sciences in school.
If you think you are one of those people that just doesn't have a "green thumb," reading this book will take much of the mystery out of gardening for you.
