“Now substantially rewritten and revised, this latest and expanded edition of Growing Media contains a wealth of new material and data on current research and technology, together with information on the latest management practices.  The book also deals comprehensively with environmentally sensitive topics such as the use of fertilizers and chemicals generally, and also covers ‘low-tech’ solutions to problems such as the recycling of ‘waste’ organic materials in cities.
Topics covered include the selection of materials for potting mixes, fertilizers, efficient use of water, drainage, salinity, turf management, disease prevention and the preparation of soils for landscape planting plus a chapter on simple tests for growing media and a useful list of ornamental plants, fruit trees and vegetables according to their known tolerances to salinity.”
