Improving Your Soil

Learn more about the importance of improving your soil and maintaining the correct N.P.K. balance with this video from Quickcrop. Growing vegetables takes a lot out of a garden because when we remove our nutritious crops we remove nutrition from the soil. This has to be given back. The really good stuff in the soil is composter organic matter which provides food for your plants, the worms and all the little micro organisms that live in your soil. The microbial life in your soil breaks down nutrients and feeds it to the hungry roots of your plants. It is a wonderful cycle and the corner stone of life on Earth. https://www.quickcrop.ie/blog/2012/07/n-p-k-explained/ https://www.quickcrop.co.uk/soil-and-compost
