Composting tips

  • Be sure the mix of ingredients you put in your tumbler contains wastes high in nitrogen and carbon for a good balance.
  • Do not attempt to make compost using any products that have been treated with chemical fertilizers or pest control products.
  • If you have bulky items to compost, such as corn cobs, melon rinds, and shrub clippings, be sure to run them through a shredder or chop up the material into smaller pieces before putting them your tumbler. Larger items take longer to break down.


What you can compost

You can add almost any organic material to your compost, and in small quantities you’re unlikely to upset the balance of ‘greens’ and ‘browns’.

  • Fresh Grass Clippings
  • Shredded Leaves
  • Kitchen Trimmings and Peels from Vegetables and Fruits
  • Sawdust
  • Garden Throwouts such as dead flowers and plants
  • Weeds (Yes! The temperature inside the ComposTumbler gets hot enough to kill the weed seeds!)
  • Manure from horses, cows, chickens, rabbits, pigs or sheep. (Do not attempt to compost any wastes from dogs or cats.)
  • Black-and-white sections of newspapers
  • Egg cartons
  • Rotted fruits and vegetables
  • Pine Needles
  • Coffee Grounds
  • Tea Leaves or Tea Bags

 

Benefits of composting

  • Healthier soil, better plants and contributing to a natural environment are all key benefits of composting.
  • Compost makes hard clay soil more airy so it drains better and provides a healthier base for roots of plants.
  • Your own home-made compost is completely safe and natural. It will not harm kids, pets, or the environment.
  • Compost builds humus in your soil and improves soil structure, texture, fertility, drainage, and aeration.
  • Compost is a mega-boost for plants. They grow bigger, produce bigger yields, and more beautiful flowers.
  • Compost makes your plants more resistant to disease.
  • Compost bulks-up thin, sandy soil, giving it more substance and texture to support hardy root growth.
  • Making compost is a great way to recycle. Instead of sending kitchen and garden wastes to the landfill, turning them into compost recycles them back into nature’s environment as a high-powered natural fertilizer.
  • Use compost to top-dress new and existing lawns for thicker, healthier grass. On a newly seeded lawn, spread a thin layer of compost as top dressing. For an existing lawn, aerate first then spread the compost.


A self-sustaining ecosystem

  • Composting creates a harmonious, natural balance in your garden.
