Banner batches, grow heaps, comforter compost, and other amazing techniques for saving time, money and producing the most flavorful, nutritious vegetables ever.
Develop mature compost right in your garden. Barbara Pleasant and Deborah Martin explain their six-way compost gardening system in this informative guide that will have you rethinking how you create and use your compost. With your plants and fertilizer living together from the beginning, your garden will become a healthy and organic environment that encourages growth and sustainability. You’ll also find that the enriched soil requires less tending, weeding, and mulching so that you can do less back-breaking work for the same lush, beautiful results.
