Composting: The Basics

Composting is the transformation of organic material (plant matter) through decomposition into a soil-like material called compost. Invertebrates (insects and earthworms), and microorganisms (bacteria and fungi) help in transforming the material into compost.

Composting Review:  Backyard composting can be almost a religious topic among serious gardeners, so it's no surprise that Smith & Hawken has chosen it for the subject of one of their exceedingly thorough single-subject gardening guides. Composting is for the gardener who likes information to be presented economically but completely. It explains the difference between simple and managed composting, the essential how-tos of each, sources for composting bins and tools, compost problem-solving, and the benefits and use of the rich results (which, if properly managed, can be ready in as little as three weeks), in just over 100 short, readable pages, illustrated with line drawings. A list of compost substitutes and a complete index finish the book off neatly. It's as useful a guide to improving the soil as the home gardener is likely to find anywhere.
