Home composting is easy to do. However, there are some important stages in home composing for the process to work best.
Position - The ideal location to place your compost bin is a sunny spot on bare soil.
Content - Regularly fill the bin with 50% green ingredients (such as grass cuttings, vegetable and fruit scraps and coffee grounds) and 50% brown ingredients (such as egg shells and boxes, newspaper, cardboard, dry leaves and twigs).
Aerate - At least once a week mix the compost with a garden fork.
Patience - Wait 9 – 12 months before the compost is crumbly and dark, then your compost is ready to use.
Use - Fork out the compost and spread it on borders and vegetable patches.
