Overview

In recent times, people have become much more ecologically aware and also more keen 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 guide gives gardeners all the information they need about starting to make their own compost, storing it and using it. 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 explore in detail how to create your own compost. Guidance is also given for those who wish to construct their own compost bin. There are specific chapters explaining wormeries and green manuring, as well as a wealth of information on seed and potting composts.
