Sort out your Soil

Sort out your Soil is the definitive guide to growing green manure plants to improve the soil. As the soil is your most precious asset for food growing, using any manure is an investment for your future crops. Growing green manures is an ideal option for those who don’t have access to their own compost or farmyard manure. Drawing on over 20 years of work, Dr Anton Rosenfeld and Dr Francis Raynes show how these plants can improve soil structure, add to soil fertility, reduce nutrient loss and improve soil life. 

The guide provides detailed information on choosing the best plants to grow in each situation, and how to manage them.
