9780709054641: The Compost Book

Did you know that charcoal makes a great slow-release plant food? Or that yoghurt speeds up compost activity and that camomile keeps your heap smelling sweet? This book divulges the secrets of good compost-making. The authors have been experimenting with compost since 1985, when they began creating a city community garden on a site of builders' rubbish. You'd be surprised what you con throw into a compost heap instead of into your garbage bin. The book shows that the best composts have a balance of nitrogen to carbon, acidity/alkalinity and temperature. Some are fast, others slow. Some are tossed, others cook under covers. Compost is a natural fertilizer. It will condition your soil and give you strong stem growth, bright flowers, pungent perfumes and nutritious fruits and vegetables.
