“This book is for all who wish to grow magnificent, scented flowers, delicious fruit and vegetables with the ‘real old-fashioned’ flavour.  It is also for everyone who wants these lavish, high-quality results with the minimum of work.  Gardening with compost is simple and effective.  Dr Shewell-Cooper’s own gardens at Arkley Manor, Hertfordshire, have long been a mecca for those interested in gardening ‘organically’, without chemical fertilisers or harmful sprays – and without weeds!  Here he explains how compost works, how to make it and apply it, what to do if you have none of your own, how to plan, plant and maintain all parts of your garden, be it large or small.”
