Soil and Composting
Soil and Composting: The Complete Guide to Building Healthy, Fertile Soil, by Nancy J. Ondra and Barbara Ellis (Houghton Mifflin, 1998; $13), provides clear and practical information to help gardeners improve most any soil type. It includes advice on taking soil samples, making compost, organic methods of feeding plants, dealing with poor drainage, and using mulches effectively. I refer to it over and over again.
