Everybody knows that to garden successfully you need compost--and environmentally-aware gardeners realize that it's the most earth-friendly way to work. But not everyone knows just how easy it is to make. That's about to change, thanks to this guide by the editor of the highly-regarded magazine Gardens Illustrated. It demystifies the whole process, and demonstrates that compost doesn't have to come in bags from the store, smell like a farm yard, or even cost a penny. All it takes are some egg shells, grass cuttings, and old banana skins, plus a little help from mold, insects and nature, to improve soil naturally, cut down on weeds without chemicals, and get more from your flowers and vegetables.
