Compost : Clare Foster

Selected by gardening doyenne Beth Chatto as one of her top twenty gardening books of all time, this invaluable book demystifies the art of composting.

In this new edition of her hands-on guide to the art of composting, House & Garden garden editor, Clare Foster, shows you how to build a compost box, select the best ingredients and put the resulting organic compost to the best use in your outdoor space.

By taking some dead leaves, grass cuttings and old banana skins and enlisting the help of bacteria, insects and nature, you can improve and enrich your soil, feed your plants and nourish your vegetables, restoring the natural balance of life in your garden.
