I have always built my own composter out of spare material - usually too big to turn over material and empty. This is just great - right sizes and best of all can be moved when empty.
I was replacing a previous compost bin, and although the design is improved, with the metal suppots to the side pieces, it took a whole afternoon to screw all the screws in, before I was able to errect the bin. An Electric screw driver would be a helpful tool.
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, can be easy 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!"
