Why you should compost

Composting is good for your garden

  • Composting is a cheap way of improving the soil in your garden.
  • It returns nutrients to your soil, which are lost through mowing, pruning and picking flowers.
  • This makes your soil more fertile.
  • It provides a good environment for earthworms and insects.
  • It helps your plants to grow.

Composting is cheap

  • You can compost a lot of your food waste, instead of throwing it away.
  • You can use it instead of manure and fertilisers.
