How to make a protozoa soup to help your plants thrive
A healthy, resilient plant gets all its strength from what its feet sit in. A healthy root system has the tools to take on slugs, rain, wind and whatever else summer is going to throw at us.
There are, in very basic terms, two types of soil that garden plants like: fungally or bacterially dominated. Perennials, shrubs, fruit bushes and trees like fungally dominated soils. Annuals, including most vegetables and nearly all grasses, like bacterially dominated soils. It’s quite easy to please either gang by feeding the soil to promote either more fungi or more bacteria.
