Composting is an excellent way to recycle kitchen and garden waste and to help your garden flourish. As Bob Flowerdew explains, any organic materials can be used, such as plant trimmings, vegetable cuttings, eggshells and teabags. He demonstrates just how easy it is to build your own compost bin and use the compost to help your garden grow. The composting process produces a dark, crumbly matter that can be used as fertiliser in garden soil. Bob explains each step of the process, from different recipes for creating organic compost, to the effects it has on different plants. A great guide for those wanting to start composting for the first time, and also packed with advice on utilising your existing compost heap. In Composting, one of an indispensable series, Bob answers all your queries in his usual practical, inventive and straightforward manner.

Composting is a way to speed up the natural process of decomposition and return organic materials to the soil. Instead of throwing away organic waste, items such as fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds, and yard trimmings can be composted. The result is a dark, crumbly material that can be used to improve the soil and beautify gardens, parks, and lawns. This interesting and practical guide explains how composting works and how to start composting, including setting up a bin, adding the right mix of ingredients, aerating the pile, and more. Successful school and municipal programs across the country are highlighted as well.
