The Organic Way to Mulching
Using natural ground coverings for soil improvement
by the Editors of Organic Gardening and Farming
Publisher: Rodale Press, Inc.
Serious about your garden? Then you want results. You don't want pretty pictures on a package or fancy gadgets or combination weedkiller-fertilizers. You want a soil that is high in humus -- the key to fertility and productivity.
That's what mulching is all about. Mulch is a layer of material (preferably organic) placed on the soil surface that can boost your garden results and give you and your family better tasting, more plentiful garden yields. How does it work? On your next walk in the woods, look at the ground, at the covering of leaves, twigs, pine needles and even rocks. Put your hand beneath that covering and feel the cool, moist earth.
That's what mulching is all about.
This book will tell you what mulching is and how it works. You'll learn how to conserve moisture, stabilize soil structure and temperature, hold down weeds and, ultimately, build soil fertility the way nature does.
THE ORGANIC WAY TO MULCHING tells you what mulch to use and how to use it. It brings to bear the aggregate authority of hundreds of gardeners who use the mulch method and scores of years of publishing ORGANIC GARDENING AND FARMING, the country's leading magazine on gardening and living the organic way. The OGF editors have compiled the best of the tips and testimonials on mulching in this book to show you how to use this natural technique for greater fertility and bigger garden yields.
You'll learn how mulching can:
* Give you the earliest tomatoes on your block;
* Keep your garden cool and moist through the worst of droughts;
* Boost the organic content of your soil without composting or plowing;
* Rejuvenate tired old trees;
* Save your work but give you bigger, better fruits and vegetables;
* Improve the appearance of your garden.
And lots more!
There's no doubt you're missing out on some good gardening if you don't mulch. But you need to know when to mulch, what to use, how much to apply. THE ORGANIC WAY TO MULCHING will show you when buckwheat hulls are good and when hay is better. You'll learn how such handy materials as newspapers, dead weeds and sawdust can all mean better gardening for you.
THE ORGANIC WAY TO MULCHING is a book you'll return to again and again. With it, we hope you'll find rich gardening pleasure that will pay off in bigger garden bonanzas. Best of all, you'll be using a technique developed and perfected by nature herself -- a sure-fire way to maintain harmony among all living things, right in your own backyard.
