Back–to–basics gardening that will benefit the earth and your wallet!

Want to use ordinary waste to create an extraordinary garden? Composting lets you turn household food waste, yard clippings, and more into free compost and mulch that′s chock–full of nutrients. From building and working with traditional compost bins to starting an indoor worm–composting operation, Composting For Dummies makes these often intimidating projects easy, fun, and accessible for anyone!

  • Digging into compost basics — get a handle on the benefits of composting and the tools you′ll need to get started

  • Choosing the best method and location — find the best composting method and location that′s right for you, whether it′s above ground, in a hole, in a container or bin, or even right in your kitchen

  • Building your pile — learn which ingredients can go into your compost pile, what stays out, and how to mix it all up in the right proportions

  • Stepping beyond traditional composting — get the lowdown on vermicomposting (letting worms eat your garbage), growing green manures to compost later, and sheet composting in the same spot you plan to plant

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very infomative for anyone wanting to learn about composting 16. Dezember 2010
Von youtoo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I really enjoyed this book. I attended a beginner's composting workshop that got me interested in the subject and found this book at my local library. The book fills in a lot of gaps that were left out during the workshop. It gives in detail approaches to many different kinds of composting and teaches you to make your own bins, containers, ect, as well as gives an overview of the different bacteria's and little animals that will be in a compost heap and how they work to compost it. It tells about hot composting and long-term composting as well as what to put in and keep out of the piles for ideal (aka fast) results. It's got a chapter dedicated solely to worm bins (which I decided to make after reading the book) and also includes a trouble-shooting section -which I used when my worms tried to go a-wal. I put them in the garage and it was too cold outside so they were trying to climb out of the bin. I took out the book and looked up the problem and came to the conclusion that it was the temperature. Now they are happy worms that stay in their bin. :) This is a great book for anyone wanting to learn the science behind the different methods of composting and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to compost successfully.

4.0 von 5 Sternen couldnt be any easier to follow....... 12. August 2011

If you're looking for a pretty picture book, pass on this one. But if you want an indepth guide to starting your composting lifestyle, this is for you. The book gives lots of options for every aspect of composting. From what to compost, to setting it up, various bins, types of growth in the compost, etc.
After a little research i found theres alot more products that can be composted that arent listed, but everything thats fundamental is listed. so,. Enjoy

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for a composting dummy like me 14. Mai 2013
Von Kevin B. Reynolds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I am not a gardener but my wife goes a little nuts with her plants, trees, vegetables, flowers and more and, we have a lot of leaves to take care of and, we re-cycle fairly vigorously so... I bought this book as a starter since it will be I who will build the bins. I have come to rely on the "For Dummies" series as they are a great way to get started with a lot of things and this one is no exception. All you need to know and all you didn't even know you needed to know is in this book. If you're new to composting, this is the book for you. Recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well organized - good for beginners or as a reference for those with a bit more experience. 25. Februar 2013
Von JoeInTampa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am not a huge fan of the "Dummies" books, but this one is excellent. It provides lots of information about composting and clearly shows where you can just get the basics and skip all the background. For those who want to know more than the basics, more in-depth material is very clear. The author is an experienced gardener and composter who understands the different needs for successful composting in climates varying from the upper midwest to the arid deserts of Arizona. Highly recommended for those looking to get started composting kitchen scraps and lawn and garden cuttings.
