Synopsis: Want to compost but aren't sure where to start? Need a little help with a compost pile that's already in the garden? Compostology 1-2-3 is the answer! It's simply the best--and most complete--guide to successful composting for every garden size, and it answers the most-asked questions: What is compost? Why is it important? How do you make compost? And how do you use compost?

The experts at Organic Gardening share their years of experience with composting, blending together how-to information and simple science to help backyard gardeners understand the process of transforming household and yard waste into rich, crumbly compost. Learn which materials make the best compost, how to build a compost bin or layer a compost pile, how to troubleshoot, which tools and supplies make the composting process easier, step-by-step methods to keep compost cooking, and how to use "gardener's gold" to enrich the soil in garden beds, planting areas, and container gardens. With helpful tips and hints and easy-to-understand illustrations, Compostology 1-2-3 shows how to make and use compost for better soil, healthier plants, and tastier vegetables and fruit. And it's as easy as 1-2-3.
