How to make compost

All flowers, plants and trees get the majority of the nutrients that keep them alive and in bloom from the soil in which they are planted, so starting a compost heap at home is a great way to produce quality plant food for free. A compost also greatly reducing the amount of waste you send to landfill – Almost 50% of the contents of the average dustbin could be used effectively for compost.

In this guide we'll take you through how to start a compost heap and what you should, and shouldn't, include to keep your plants thriving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Compost Around This is one of the best composts I've found recently, it certainly beats any of the other DIY stores composts. It's good for potting up and for sowing seeds. It holds moisture well and doesn't seem to get any green moss growing on the surface like others sometimes do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Verve Multipurpose compost 60L bag Unlike other reviewers, I found no problems with this product small bits of twig are easily removed (after all it is a non peat compost), mixed with perlite it has brought my cuttings from seed on a treat. Presume I must have been ones of the lucky ones. Certainly, at £12 for three 60L bags I will purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Holds less water than a sieve Bought 6 sacks in Feb for use with tomato seedlings. Useless. Seedlings have suffered. Not impressed at all. If I had the receipt and ease of transportation, I'd take it back. Mercifully the price was low so financial losses mitigated but that's more than can be said for the loss of time and state of the seedlings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from April-2015 formulation is rubbish Verve -regular formulation changes. The "improved formulation" available in stores around April 2015 is rubbish. Not suitable for seedlings (too coarse) so it is not multi-purpose. Turns black with watering, too much composted bark. The February-2015 formulation was good. I bought 3 bags for £12 but returned 2 after finding how bad it was.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of nettle weeds! I may have just been unlucky with a bad batch, ( batch no A0 43E 16:01) but I used it for seedlings, and lots of nettle seedlings came up. I always, disinfect my pots before use so it can't have been them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so good Over the last 8 to 9 months I have Purchased well over 30 bags of this compost and each bag contains more rubbish like bits of wire,thick black bark,plastic bits. I have now said not any more so have changed to a better compost OK its a little more in price but still 2 50L bags for £10.00,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good but not good enough Generally speaking a good compost if it were not for the fact that it needs going through the riddle first. Bought it last year and was satisfied, this year ,however, I found that it was full of twigs, bits of wood, bits of plastic and polythene, bits of paper and bits if cloth. This is very worrying as I wonder what else is there that I missed (chemicals and so on).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality compost Just like others who have reviewed the larger bags of this compost, I found my bags contaminated with all sorts of rubbish including electrical cable, elastic bands, plastic, bits of plant label and bits of wood. I won't be buying it again. I would prefer to pay a bit more at a nursery.
