Most gardeners realize that plants need to be fed but know little to nothing about the nature of the nutrients involved or how they get into plants. Teaming with Nutrients explains how nutrients move into plants and what both macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients do once inside. It shows organic gardeners how to provide these essentials. To fully explain how plants eat, Lowenfels uses his ability to make science accessible with lessons in biology, chemistry, and botany that all gardeners need to know to understand how nutrients get to the plant and what they do once they're inside it.Teaming with Nutrients will open your eyes to the importance of understanding the role of nutrients in healthy, productive organic gardens, and it will show you how these nutrients do their jobs. In short, it will make you a better informed, more successful, and more environmentally responsible gardener.
