(20 items)

Soil is the absolute bedrock of organic gardening and keeping it healthy with good structure and nutrient levels is a fundamental practice. Composting is the perfect way to assist the health of your soil and it’s a great way to ensure nothing is wasted. Composting works best when a balance of both green and brown waste is applied.

Compost bins have also come a long way from their humble beginnings! There is now a good selection of compost bins for those with limited space in the garden; turning bins which rotate and aid the composting process through aeration; composting wormeries that produce highly valued compost, with the added value of producing a liquid feed run off. If you’re garden is on a small balcony or roof space, then a wormery may be a good way to have steady access to a compost supply. For those of you that are serious about reducing waste as much as possible, an investment in a hot bin will satisfy. It means you can compost meat, fish and dairy products – items that wouldn't normally be placed in a compost bin. If you’re blessed with space, wooden slatted compost bays are really good news, as they allow easy access for turning and watering.
