"Keeping garden soil in good health is an essential part of gardening, and compost is the home gardener's most effective way to maintain fertile, well aerated, and moisture-retentive soil. This abundantly illustrated book gives gardeners all the guidance they need to start making, storing, and using their own compost. It offers information on the different types of compost and their ingredients, advice on constructing a compost bin, and detailed explanations of wormeries, green manuring, and seed and potting composts. There's no better or easier-to-follow guide for anyone wanting to make and use their own compost."--www.foxchapelpublishing
