Bacteria and fungi thrive on the warm compost and break down the matter to leave a woody material for the garden. This bacteria is food for a whole host of bugs and beetles as well as snails, slugs and millipedes. These in turn can attract larger predators like frogs and birds. You'll have your own wildlife sanctuary in no time. ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— Environmental TV and Events 464 WIN SOME MIDSUMMER'S MADNESS p451 Young green What's on Cinema Index
