Home composting

Buy a discounted home composter

Home composting is easy and inexpensive to do and you can transform your kitchen and garden waste into a free, nutrient rich food for your garden.

By producing your own compost you will also be helping the environment by reducing the use of shop bought peat-based composts and other chemicals and artificial fertilisers.

Compost your garden waste at home

Compost heaps

You can make compost simply by adding compostable items to a heap in your garden. It will all compost eventually. For more information see the Royal Horticultural Society website.

Compost bins

Compost bins retain more warmth and moisture more than a compost heap, this results in better compost more quickly.
