Charles Darwin, the most famous if not first champion of earthworms, concluded that healthy soils and landscapes depend on the heroic work of these silent creatures. They may lack the obvious charisma of birds and butterflies, but the fruits of earthworm toil are both useful and prodigious. Earthworms: Nature's Gardeners provides non-specialists with photographs to help them identify the commonest British species. Do not be fooled by the apparent simplicity of their unprepossessing outward appearance. They may not have eyes, ears, legs. and so on, but their repertoire of habits is intricate and sophisticated. Earthworms: Nature's Gardeners also provides practical guidance on how to harness the composting activities of earthworms, so that domestic waste can be converted to a marvellous fertiliser for indoor and outdoor crops. No garden should be without earthworms; to appreciate their talents is to recognise their beauty.
