  6. Let it Rot

    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.

    by Carol Klein. Is that plant flamboyant, frivolous, or shy and retiring? In this marvelous look at herbaceous plants, Carol Klein categorizes them by personality traits and shows how mixing diverse personalities makes a vibrant garden. She has Bread and Butter plants, the stalwarts of the garden, Cinderella plants that shoot to stardom, then disappear, and Shooting Stars, short lived but exciting. Also to be found are the Will-O-the-Wisps and Wafty Whisperers that add light and movement, Prickly Customers and Soft Touches, that add texture, and the Dainty and Detailed. Making bolder statements are the Gatecrashers, uninvited self-seeders, the Seductive Sophisticates, subtle yet charismatic, and those Drama Queens that demand attention. Klein enthusiastically introduces readers to great varieties with wonderful descriptions and discusses their cultivation. Each plants personality is further showcased in exquisite close-up color photographs (most full page) that are works of art themselves and would be lovely framed.
