about this item

Manure might be dirty, disgusting and smelly, but it's the topic of the most exciting gardening book of the year. Because it's manure that maximises your garden, whatever you grow in it. And, like people, plants need nutrients in order to grow, flower and bear fruit, nutrients that can be found in offal, the sea, fire, rocks, the toilet, rubbish and, of course, dung heaps. The author thoroughly explores every aspect of the theme, from chemistry and biology to history and philosophy and the book answers all your ‘whats', ‘whens' and ‘hows' and gives you concrete advice, generous tips and, above all, masses of inspiration. It lifts the lid on old and reliable fertilisation methods and opens the doors to new resource-efficient and environmentally-smart cultivation techniques. Beautiful Manure has an unusual theme, a tone that stands out in a crowd and doesn't look like a typical gardening book but, most importantly, it's a book that everyone interested in gardening needs.
