Compost in comfort with the double chamber 175 Litre Tumbling Composter and 'revolutionise' your garden and growing at the same time by producing valuable, well rotted compost much faster than a traditional heap.
The 72cm wide, 95cm high by 66cm deep rugged UV stabilised plastic drum is easy to assemble and sits securely on the steel frame and the sliding front panel reveals two 87 litre chambers; one for filling and the other one for decomposing, allowing you to continue filling the tumbler whilst creating your compost, an attribute not many composters can boast.
Rotating the tumbling composter drum is much easier than turning a heap; there are adjustable air vents on each side and tough internal churning paddles thoroughly mix the contents on each turn - home composting has never been so easy!

A 175 Litre Tumbling Composter is currently in use at Highgrove as part of a composting course.
Prompt delivery but took us a while to assemble. Having read some reviews before we bought we were prepared for the challenge. We're very pleased with the look and size. We choose this one because of the 2 compartments, previous composters we have had we got mixed degrees of compost. We haven't filled one side yet but are hopeful of a good result, but don't feel we can rate performance yet.
Easy to erect and even some extra pieces in case of damage or loss! Mr Clements
Our Master Composter Martin Fiddes says; "Home composting is a must for any serious gardener. Well rotted compost adds essential organic matter to soil along with humus and greatly improves structure and the soil's ability to hold onto water and nutrients.
What's more, home composting is free, is easy wiyth a tumbler and greatly helps the environment as less compostable material makes it to landfill sites where it produces harmful methane gas - and you cut down on trips to the garden centre to buy compost too. It's a win/win situation!
It's also surprising how much compostable material your garden and kitchen produces; of course there's the usual, stems, deadheaded flowers, leaves and spent plants from the veg patch or border but don't forget kitchen peelings, cardboard and newspaper from inside the house. Filling a bin or building a heap is never a problem!"
