Title: Enjoy your garden : care for our environment
Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
This Environment Agency booklet investigates pollution and wastes from gardening. A cocktail of chemicals will probably sort out the weeds and the bugs, but if there is a pond or stream close by, and the weather turns rainy or windy, that cocktail could cause harm. Pesticides or weedkillers getting into an ornamental pond full of koi carp can be lethal. Also, fertilizer makes pondweed grow out of control, choking the pond and the fish. On the contrary using compost is good for garden and even better for the environment. Compost also helps worms to flourish, vital for healthy soil, it saves you money and reduces the need to use peat-based products, helping our peat bogs.
