How to use
Site your compost bin or heap in a warm, sheltered part of the garden. For best results it should be in contact with the soil and have a cover. Add a good mixture of garden and kitchen waste, shredding or breaking up larger pieces. Do not add large quantities of grass, paper, card or woody branches all in one go.
Keep the compost moist but not waterlogged. Water the heap if the waste is dry or woody.
Forking over, mixing or turning the contents every few weeks or so will help the composting process.
The top of the heap should be kept warm and moist by covering it with a lid, plastic sheet or similar covering. Do not add cooked food as this may attract vermin.
Where to use
Grass cuttings, vegetable matter, egg shells, weeds, leaves, shredded stems and other woody material.
On compost heaps: sprinkle evenly over 20cm to 25cm of composting material and lightly fork in.
In compost bins: mix evenly with 20cm to 25cm of composing material as the bin is filled.
