In recent times, people have become much more ecologically aware and also keener to minimize their carbon footprint. This, coupled with the pressure from governments to recycle household waste, means that creating and using garden compost is becoming almost essential knowledge. This book is aimed at people with and without gardens who want to recycle their kitchen and garden waste in the most environmentally efficient manner, as well as anyone who wants to use compost to improve the health of their garden. Covering all types of composting methods, including worm composting, leaf mould and woody heaps, it gives gardeners all the information they need to start making, storing and using their own compost. Information on different types of compost - what they consist of, what they are good for and how they are best stored - is given, before moving on to detail how to make each specific kind of compost. It includes information on composting under different circumstances, such as composting on a balcony or in a back yard, composting with children, composting in the office etc. Trouble-shooting advice and FAQs are also included. A truly practical book on how to make and use a rich, fertile medium for growing healthy, beautiful fruit, vegetables and flowers.
