"If you really want to get a sense of how little we know about how plants use fertilizers -- and I count myself in this league -- you should read Teaming with Nutrients, which gets deep into the weeds, so to speak, of the microscopic architecture of plants and the biochemical processes at play." --The Washington Post

"Useful and practical information on soil testing, natural and synthetic fertilizers, factors influencing availability of nutrients, and the importance of proper fertilizing." --Pacific Horticulture

"Lowenfels offers everyone else a crash course in discovering soil structure, fertility, and microbial actions powerful enough to turn a dry wash into a productive source of clean, slow, organically grown food, without a single bag of potting soil." --The Desert Sun

"Lowenfels offers a deeper understanding of the major and minor plant nutrients and delivers the necessary science in a conversational style that most gardeners will appreciate." --The Monterey County Herald

"You'll never garden the same old way again." --Muskogee Phoenix

"Colorful illustrations, plentiful and readable diagrams, and a well-executed chapter structure make this an indispensable resource." --Publishers Weekly
