Mike McGrath's Book of Compost
During his seven years as Editor-in-Chief of "Organic Gardening" magazine, Mike McGrath learned quite a bit about the nature and science of composting. And he's never stopped studying, because he wants to give the best, most up-to-date information to the listeners of his nationally-syndicated Public Radio show, "You Bet Your Garden." He offers the fruits of his labors in this illustrated guide that reveals why compost is the answer to virtually every garden question. McGrath explains why compost improves soil structure; why it provides the" perfect" amount of food for every plant; how it fights plant diseases more safely and effectively than any chemical fungicide; and how to make your own. This is a must-have on every gardener's bookshelf!
