Composting is the purposeful biodegradation (rotting) of organic matter, such as garden and food waste. This is performed by micro-organisms, mostly bacteria, but also yeasts and fungi. Also contributing to the process are soldier flies, fruit flies and fungus gnats.
If you prefer to keep the use of chemicals to a minimum in your garden, but want to take advantage of the autumn good growing weather to take semi ripe hardwood cuttings...why not try making your own hormone rooting liquid - Willow Water?
Introducing water into a design is not only good for the wildlife, it’s good for the soul, bringing sound, movement and reflection into a garden.
