Spring is a great time to start composting and get into the garden as the weather starts to improve.  why waste your time and money going down to the DIY store to purchase compost for your plastic raised beds and plastic planters, when you can make your own in no time.

You can give home composting a try by recycling your kitchen waste. More than one third of the average black waste bin can be composted, not to mention all the garden waste. Yet many people still don’t know how simple home composting is to do.

 Home composting is still one of the best ways to help the environment every day, and is a habit that can be quickly built into your regular kitchen and garden habits. For example its not just grass cuttings that can go into your compost bin: you can also add scrunched up cardboard, teabags vegetable peelings and coffee granules –   even shredded confidential documents, don’t worry worms still can’t read.  

At the height of summer my recycled plastic compost tumbler churns out compost every 3 weeks. To order a compost tumbler which is the quickest and most efficient way to produce home compost contact Kedel Ltd on 01282 861325.

Composting is a natural process that transforms your kitchen and garden waste into valuable food and nutrients for your garden. Its great for using on plastic flower beds, vegetable plots, plastic raised beds and for mixing into recycled plastic planters and can really make your garden bloom.



The Composting Craze!!!
Over the last few years composting has become a big thing, gardeners all over the world have taken up composting for themselves and all playing a part in reducing our need to thow stuff in the rubbish bin.

There are many benefits to your garden growing by using home-made compost, such as:

  • Increased nutrients.
  • Decreases their susceptibility to pests and disease.
  • Water retention is more evenly balanced within the soil.
  • The structure of the soil is improved.

So the first thing to do, is get yourself a compost tumbler or a compost bin. A tumbler is the fastest at producing compost and the usual turnaround with Kedels ‘the dark destoyer’ compost tumbler is about 4-5 weeks. Now what to put in it.

Good things to add to the compost bin.

  • Garden plant remains
  • Old flowers 
  • Fruit and vegetable leftovers 
  • Nutshells 
  • Coffee and tea grounds 
  • Crushed egg shells 
  • Small branches and twigs
  • Untreated saw dust
  • Grass clippings 
  • Weeds

Avoid adding the following:

  • Pet or human waste
  • Bones
  • Fatty foods
  • Meats
  • Dairy products
  • Thick branches
  • Diseased plants
  • Fish

Make sure you provide the mix with the best possible conditions, so that you get your produce in optimal time.

  1. Rotate the drum daily to aerate the mulch inside the drum.
  2. Add water, moisten but don’t overdo it. Consistency is the key here.  The moisture inside the mix should be around 50%, similar to that of damp clothes.
  3. Add many small manageable sizes of materials (small twigs and not large branches!!)

Composting can be great fun. With a good rotating compost bin, you’ll be making compost in no time.
