Mulch is truly miraculous stuff! It saves water, protects and enriches the soil, suppresses weeds, promotes healthy plants, and to top it off, much of it is free. The range of materials is enormous and many of them are just lying around begging to be used. The Mulch Book tells you all about mulch: what it is, where to get it, how to use it and how it works. The main part of the book is the A-Z of Mulch, which describes many different mulch materials and their uses, together with mulching techniques. There are tips on how to mulch different parts of your garden and which mulches to use for a smart look in small spaces. This little book, delightfully illustrated, will show you how to make gardening easier - the mulch does the hard work, leaving more time for you to relax and enjoy your garden.
Mary Horsfall has been gardening organically for over three decades. She created a huge productive organic garden on a bush block, which provided much of the family's fruit and vegetable needs for 23 years. She has since moved to a smaller block in a country town where vegetable production is still a priority and she is enjoying the challenges and opportunities of gardening in a reduced space.
