This video from KET’s Think Garden collection explains why soil is more than just dirt. Learn how to tell if soil is rich and healthy or lacking in nutrients, which nutrients are essential for plant growth, and what happens if plants lack these nutrients. Also find out how to improve soil with crop rotation and by weeding; and find out what compost is, and how to use it in a garden.
This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
