Soil & Composting | Soil & Composting

This book has been written for the home gardener who wants to know what is compost and how to make it. Normally organic matter such as leaves, food scraps, lawn clippings, etc. takes considerable time to beak down if left to rot on the ground. With composting we take control of the process and speed it . All that is needed for a good compost heap are the right ingredients: organic material, micro-organisms, moisture and oxygen. By using the right proportions of these ingredients, we can reduce the loss of nutrients and thereby improve and fertilise the soil. This ensures healthy plant growth. Composting also discusses how to determine whether the compost heap is working and, if not, what can be done to correct it.
