The Miracle of Mulch

Mary Horsfall
New Holland
$NZ22.95

WHO would have thought it possible to publish an entire book about mulch? Mary Horsfall, an organic gardener for 25 years, is obviously a passionate mulch-maker, because her enthusiasm for the subject is what makes this down-to-earth guide such a worthy read. Where other such books have boggled readers with technical detail, The Miracle of Mulch spells it out simply.

Find out the science behind why you should mulch, when to do it and what to use - from pond algae to paper, peat and even plastic.

The Miracle of Mulch is a small book, but a good investment for any gardener committed to soil health and eco-friendly gardening.
