What is a composter?

   A composter is a structure made of recycled plastic, where compost matures quickly and aesthetically.
   Composting produces good fertilizer. This fertilizer returns nutrients to the soil and improves its properties.

When to buy a composter?

If you want to save money on waste disposal

And, of course: If you feel that recycling makes sense.

How to start composting?

1

Place the composter on a flat surface
The composter has no bottom and contact with soil has to be ensured, because that is where micro-organisms get into the compost from.

2

Put broken branches into the composter
In order to properly start the composting processes, access of air in the composter must be ensured and that is why dry and wet twigs should be placed on the ground level.

3

Open the aeration holes
Open the aeration valve and the aeration holes on the sides to ensure sufficient aeration. Experienced gardeners recommend aerating compost once a year, i.e. shuffling it with the fork. You will save this work if you have two composters.

Jak založit kompost

  Add 1 part of green material to 2-3 parts of wooden material

Put biological waste in the compost at the C:N ratio of 25-30:1. It may sound overly scientific, but it is no big deal.


Fresh, green, nitrogen-rich material is mixed with old woody material with high content of carbon.


You can add one bucket of kitchen waste to two or three buckets of bark. Add two or three wheelbarrows of straw or needles to a wheelbarrow of mowed grass.
