'Allow us to introduce you to Compost Almighty...'
So does this third issue of new favourite (and appropriately brown) Pleasant Places proclaim its love for decomposing organic matter. This edition of the 'growing collection of publications about the art of gardening’ digs deep into the hows, whats and whys of composting, from hot to cold, while singing the praises of worms, comfreys, poo and Marjory the Trash Heap from Fraggle Rock.
As always, a curious and pleasant read indeed, and beautifully designed too, with a gorgeously illustrated mole(cular) centrefold this time around.
