I like how the book is organized with lots of great information up front & then for each recipe it explains why it works, which plants will benefit from it, what to combine with it& how to make it several ways. It’s go a lot to work with. Any ideas for houseplants? Please write a book on homemade fertilizers for houseplants!”
