As Landscape designers and contractors we all know the importance of selecting plants to suit site conditions. A big part of this is soil and nutrient composition. Like our previous video (on plant groupings), we met with a prominent soil expert – Simon Leake to hear what he had to say.

Simon Leake from SESL Australia discusses PH/cation exchange and the affect it has on the take up of nutrients, how to control PH Levels, and what steps to take when choosing plants to suit your soil.
