Making Compost - Learn How To Make Your Own Compost

Compost really is the superhero of the garden, without compost you will soon find that your garden soil will become inadequate and your garden plants will become undernourished and may even die. But we don't want this to happen to you!

Making your own compost is not as hard as people often say it is, by following a few simple steps you will soon be on your way to creating your own fantastic compost. In my eBook ‘How To Make Compost’ I talk in detail about how to create compost using a range of different methods. In this short article I will talk about the ‘cold’ compost heap and how to take advantage of it.

The ‘cold’ heap is the most common way for the home gardener to create compost for there own garden or allotment, it’s a simple method that is easy to do however it takes quite a long time to see the results.

To start begin creating your own ‘cold’ compost you will need some sort of compost bin, these can be bought cheaply but they are really easy to make. The most common compost bins are made of black plastic or wooden pallets. I highly recommend a wooden compost bin.

Once you have your compost bin you will need to begin filling it with your kitchen or garden waste. Try and include a range of different materials in your compost as you need to get the right mix of ‘greens’ and ‘browns’. If you don’t understand the difference between them you really need to get your hands on my eBook.

With the ‘cold’ heap you will need to continue adding waste over a long period, three to four months is the regular amount of time that it will take to fill the bin. The downside to the ‘cold’ heap is that it can take over 12 months for your compost to be ready to use. However, once it is ready you will soon find how valuable compost can be for your garden.

After about 12 months your compost should be ready to use, in the ideal world your compost will be dark brown and crumbly. If your compost turns out to be wet and sloppy you have done something wrong. It is all about getting the right mixture of materials.

Compost can be used for so many different things. If your compost is the fine crumbly stuff why not use it for sowing seeds or maybe you could even use it for potting plants on. Whatever you decide to do with it, your efforts will not be wasted – I promise.
