With the weather improving and more people getting out in their gardens we thought it was a great time to highlight the benefits of composting and that you can make your own DIY compost container if you don’t already have one in your garden.
A compost heap enables you to recycle garden waste and some kitchen waste AND provide you with rich compost for your garden.
Our project on building a compost bin shows how to make a simple timber container with layered sections so it allows you to remove layers as your compost rots down and makes a more efficient container. It gives step by step instructions and there is also a video showing how you can make a compost container from recycled materials.
There are lots of books available on how to make good compost and how to use it, so you can make the most of your compost heap.
