Rhyzophyllia and the soil food web: a Botanical Society talk given by Eddie Bailey on 14th November

“After just one pre-winter of mulching, I noticed an incredible difference in the structure of my soil. Moving mulch to one side ahead of planting plugs in April I saw a ‘storm’ of microarthropods on the soil surface. And worms! So many worms! Germination and yields have rapidly improved since, together with BRIX* values and pest resistance. I have also found my soil needs watering less in the height of summer!” – from the website. (*Low Brix level readings increase the likelihood of a bacterial, insect or fungal attack on the plant.)
