You can transform your kitchen and garden waste into a useful compost for your garden. The natural composting process rots down kitchen and garden waste to produce compost. Compost is a dark brown earthy material used in gardens to improve soil, add nutrients and help plants and flowers grow.
It's easy to make and use:
- Put your compost bin in a reasonably sunny site on bare soil.
- Put the following in your bin:
Yes : vegetable and fruit peelings, teabags, eggshells and torn up toilet roll tubes, egg boxes, cereal boxes and paper. grass cuttings, fallen leaves, twigs, branches, old flowers
No : cooked food, meat or fish, dog poo, cat litter, nappies, no perennial weeds or weeds with seed heads
- A 50/50 mix of kitchen and garden waste is the perfect recipe.
- Wait 9 – 12 months. Your compost will be a crumbly, dark material, resembling thick, moist soil. Use it to enrich your borders and vegetable patch.
