The Science of Compost: Life, Death and Decay in the Garden
"A very serious, rigorous and thoroughly referenced deep dive into your compost heap...also acts as a reminder about why we might want to compost in the first place...this is primarily an analysis of the layers of the heap, and as such, an absolutely riveting read."
– Alys Fowler, Gardens Illustrated
"A fascinating study of the biology of the lowly compost heap...reveals its mysteriously complex nature. This book won’t tell you how to build a compost heap, but it will explain the science behind it to help you better understand how to build and maintain one."
– English Garden
"While this small book deals with lots of science, it is done in a very accessible form...Gardeners will find it a valuable resource that will help them perfect their own friable and fertile compost."
– The Countryman
