COMPOSTING TIPS.

Composting organic waste is certainly not a myth. It simply means
to stratify organic waste in order to obtain decomposition of
organic material. This can be achieved thanks to the activities of
microorganisms under the impact of oxygen. The final product
of this process is what we call compost.


Compost is a precious soil improver for your garden. The benefit
of first-class compost has been scientifically proven. Unlike the
simple mineral fertilization, the compost helps to conserve and
improve soil fertility.


Another positive effect is that you can reduce your domestic
waste up to 30%. Thus you can save real cash on domestic
waste fees!


Composting means an active contribution for our environment
protection. The composters support you in your
'green' efforts!

THE RIGHT POSITION.
Place your composter directly on the soil. This enables access
for the microorganisms to your composter. To protect it from
rodents, use our soil fence or bottom plate.


You obtain a particularly effective rotting if you place the composter
in a sunny position. The composter needs the solar heat for
evaporation of the humidity, however it must not totally dry up.
Your composter should be situated in a wind-protected, but not
completely windless position – air circulation is important!

WHAT TO PUT INTO YOUR COMPOSTER.
Friut & vegetable matter, coffee & tea grounds, egshells (hackled),
potted plants, cut flowers, used potting soil.

WHAT NOT TO PUT INTO YOUR COMPOSTER.
Meat & meat products, fish, leftovers, cheese, bones,
ashes from coal fire or bbq, cigarettes, street rubbish, plastic.


SOME USEFUL TIPS FOR PERFECT COMPOST RESULTS.

When filling the composter for the first time, use bulky organic
material such as hackled boughs as bottom layer. Thus air can
penetrate easily into the compost and excessive water can be
discharged more effectively. The bottom layer should be followed
by layers with well-blended organic waste from garden and
kitchen.


The more the waste is stirred, the easier and faster the rotting
can take place. At the beginning you should not fill the composter
to the top, but only with daily organic waste. Kitchen
waste has a high water content. Consequent ventilation is
important, so make sure that there is enough supply of oxygen.
Wet materials should be blended with dry materials, and the
same applies for bigger and finer materials.


If you follow this advice, you will be rewarded with perfect
compost results – for the well-being of your garden as well as
for the protection of our environment!
