Publisher's Summary

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.

Great book

I thought it was a great read. Jeff goes into a lot of detail to plant systems and explains components well. As someone who completed tertiary education in plant science it was a refreshing reminder of the complexity of plants and why I love them. Jeff has a bias towards organically grown and GMO free plants, which came through in the writing, and although I respect his position, I can't agree with it all and never like it when someone pushes an ideology onto readers, and for that can't give 5 stars. Definitely a book you'll need to read a few times to really get the most from it.

Great book, AWFUL narrator

Got the hard copy of this book and love it. Wanted to get it in audiobook format so I could listen on the go. UGH, the narrator is terrible. If you think the sample sounds robotic, just wait until you listen to 20 minutes of him. I had to get a refund, I can't listen to him, as much as I love this book.

Informative but a bit dry

Lots of detailed and wonderful information though it’s not as easy to listen to as the other ‘Teaming with…’ books. Chris Lutkin, the narrator, is clear and easy to understand but I find his reading style flat and a bit broken. I would still recommend this book to any keen gardener though!
