Composting Made Easy - a Blue Daisy Guide

Posted by on in News & Views

Compost is something that we're always being asked about so in response to all those questions you have we've put together a downloadable Blue Daisy guide - Composting Made Easy.

foodwasteWe tell you what you need to compost, what to put into your compost, and answer the following questions and more:

  • How often do I need to turn the compost?
  • How long does it take to make?
  • How do I know when it’s ready?
  • If I’m leaving my compost to ripen where do I put all the compostable material I continue to generate?
  • I heard that rats are attracted to compost – is that right?
  • Can I add weeds to my compost heap?

So, if you want to know the answers to these questions and more please download your Blue Daisy Guide - Composting Made Easy here.
