Let it Rot


by Stu Campbell. The modern practice of composting is little more than speeding up and intensifying natural processes. With landfills overflowing it just makes sense to compost. Not only does it reduce waste - but it also builds up the soil tremendously. In this book, Stu Campbell explains how composting works, different types of composting, different organic materials, methods to speed up decomposition and how it helps your soil. Compost also has the ability to suppress plant diseases such as damping off, powdery and downy mildews and late blight of potatoes. You also have trouble shooting tips throughout the book to help with any problems, but as Stu tell us - successful composting requires the realization that no matter what you do, no matter how many mistakes you make, you are still probably going to come up with reasonably good, usable compost.
