Are you the proud owner of a composter?
Ever thought of composting? Spring is the best time to start! It’s fun, it’s free and it’s an easy way to help reduce waste and recycle throw away green waste.
We all know that everything that once lived will eventually rot, but did you know that the rotting process produces vital nutrients that can be returned to the soil and composting is an easy way of speeding up this process.
So what should you put in the heap? Mix and Match is the name of the game. Take a look at our link for a list of the good, the bad and the so-so of compost ingredients.
After as little as 6 weeks depending on the weather (warm weather helps!) you can turn throw-away ‘greens’ and ‘browns’ into sweet smelling, nutrient-rich, no-cost ‘black gold’. Spread it on your garden soil and your flowers and plants will be the talk of the town! Easy peasy.
