The latest in soil news include a new Soil Health Landscape Tool, the effect of mycorhizzae on tree ecology and the positive effect of soil microbes on plant’s defense system against pathogens.
Canada Blooms is on every day this week! Every year I pour over the Canada Blooms guide and walk through the event to check for any soil-related presentations, garden displays and products. I am thrilled that Canada Blooms has acknowledged FAO’s 2015 International Year of Soils with several activities and presentations.
I believe in supporting botanical gardens. Botanical gardens not only showcase and conserve different plants, but they also play a key role in educating people on the wonders of plants and gardening.
