Product details

Product information

This garotta compost maker is suitable for composting all garden and kitchen wastes.

  • Prickle 2-3 tablespoons per m2 over each 8cm (3″) layer of new material. Water the heap if the waste is dry or woody. A watering can holding between 5 and 8 litres (1 to 1½ gallons) is ideal as this should ensure that the new material is thoroughly wet. Repeat each time a layer of fresh material is added. When the compost heap is full, leave for 6-8 weeks to compost down completely. Only add fresh material such as lawn clippings, garden weeds and raw kitchen vegetable peelings. Never add cooked food of any kind as this can attract vermin. Shred or cut waste into smaller pieces where possible, especially woody stems. Cover the heap to retain moisture. Turn heap regularly in order to allow in air which is needed for the composting process and for faster results. When ready, spread the compost on your garden as a mulch or soil improver, leaving any material not fully composted as the base for a new heap.

I used this last year on my compost, I have two bins. As an experiment I used this product on one bin, the other was just turned regularly. I can say without doubt that Garotta certainly sped things up. Remember to turn and keep moist, you can't go wrong!

It's a bit too early to review

I use 'compost maker' once every year when I turn the heap. I have not used this particular brand before, but those that I have used in the past have worked well. I won't be able to pass a definitive view until I come to spread the compost, planned for November this year, but I'm expecting the usual results.
