Two garden pros have joined forces to explain how compost gardening is an option for any
homeowner. Starting with the basic tools, they go on to explain the various materials that can be
added to a compost pile (and those that should not be added).
They describe the techniques that get the best results, depending on what space is available and whether you want to use a self-contained unit, an above-ground method or an underground system, all with or without the aid of earthworms. Includes a section on plants that can aid in the composting process.
