You must believe in spring (Tony Bennett)

Title: How to Mulch by Stu Campbell
Publisher: Storey Publishing (new edition, Amazon digital)
96 pp
Genre: gardening, mulch, horticulture, how to,
3.5 stars****
Author: Stu Campbell has been writing gardening how to books, especially on mulch, for some time. They are concise, straightforward and easy to read.
Story Line: As the title indicates, this is a beginners guide to mulching, simply illustrated, informative and basic. It will provide you with how and why to mulch, the types of mulch available and what will suit your budget. It would be useful for beginner gardeners, and a refresher for others. Given the importance of water restrictions in many climates of the U.S., this book is more relevant today. It would appear this is an updated digital version, which is also timely for the spring market. I would be tempted to peruse it from the library or in the bookstore before purchasing, to see if it suits your needs. There was nothing new for me but I am a serious mulcher (in three locations on two continents).
