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.
