Below is a brief description of the properties of compost.
Compost is a key ingredient in any garden; it is the life blood that every gardener should place into his soil giving it back all the essential ingredients required for successful plant growth.
At its simplest level, the process of composting simply requires making a heap of wetted organic matter (leaves, food waste, and garden trimmings) and waiting for the materials to break down into soil after a period of weeks or months. Modern, methodical composting is a multi-step, closely monitored process with measured inputs of water, air and carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials. The decomposition process is aided by shredding the plant matter, adding water and ensuring proper aeration by regularly turning the mixture.
Worms and fungi further break up the material, whilst aerobic bacteria manage the chemical process by converting the inputs into heat, carbon dioxide and ammonium. The ammonium is further converted by bacteria into plant-nourishing nitrates through the process of nitrification.Compost can be rich in nutrients and has many uses, such as soil conditioning, a fertilizer, as an addition of vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide.

Compost Bins
Composting, the process of converting kitchen and garden waste into valuable fertilizer, is the core activity of every gardener. Compost is the single most important supplement you can give your garden, and most gardeners complain that they never have enough!
These compost bins will enable you to produce your own compost efficiently and with the minimum of disruption to the rest of your garden. The compost bin will keep all the materials enclosed during the composting process in a neat, compact area which in turn will aid the decomposition and allow you to aerate without creating any messy fallout.
Wooden Composters
Wooden Composters have a more traditional look to them and blend into the garden more easily than modern plastic and metal compost bins.
Composting is a way to produce your own nutrient rich compost at minimal cost. Producing your own compost is also a way to recycle your garden and kitchen waste rather than simply adding it to your rubbish bin and it ending up in landfill! As we all become more environmentally conscious producing your own garden compost is becoming increasing popular - with the result that there are now a wide range of compost bins available to suit every situation. These traditional, large timber compost bins will allow you to produce your own compost from all your kitchen and garden waste whilst maintain the look of your garden.
Worm Composters
Using a Worm Composter rather than a traditional compost bin will increase the speed at which compost will be formed, a wormery should create ready to use compost in around just 6-8 weeks.
Womeries are so efficient at converting waste into nutrient rich compost as they use natures fastest composters - worms, to convert your waste into a valuable resource. Worm Composters are also compact which means even if you only have a small garden you’ll still have space to create your own compost.
