Transform your kitchen and garden waste into a useful resource 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.
There are many environmental benefits of home composting and did you know more than a third of the content of the average household bin can be composted.
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.
If you already compost or grow your own vegetables pass on your knowledge and skills to friends, family and neighbours.
