How to create your own compost

How to create your own 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 4 out of 5 by from Great price Really good value for money and does exactly what it needs. Saves serious money against the big branded ones

Rated 3 out of 5 by from works OK I use this for vegetables and flowers with good results. It's a reasonable compost, and I assume there's no peat in it, which is important to me. Moisture retentuon is as expected. There are more small undecomposed sticks in it than I would like. When repotting young plants I have to take these out. Would give it more stars if these were removed or properly rotted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Used in hanging baskets with very poor results. Plants not growing seeming to lack nutrients.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from avoid! I bought this for my house plants. The compost was full of larvae of tiny flies which I found out only after using it. I threw away almost full bag of the compost but the flies have managed to infect most of my plants as they spread very quickly. Will never buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor compost and rocks added to make up weight Bought 3 bags on offer and used for pots for bulbs late last year and mulching early this year. Poor quality peat free compost - very woody/coir like and poor strucutre. Found a large rock in first bag - thought an error but then found one in each bag so clearly added to make up the weight . Would not buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality, avoid I bought over 500 litres of this to fill my new raised beds (along with 250 litres of manure). The 'compost' is mainly fibrous wood chippings and coir with no real soil like substance. It dries out quickly too. Only moisture retention I've seen is in the manure I've dug in to it.. Nothing seems to be growing well in this compost. In fact my beans have died and the peas have hardly sprouted after 6 weeks! Potatoes are growing but I suspect this is because I planted them in rotted manure lined trenches. Avoid and get a proper peat free compost elsewhere.
