Compost is one of the best fertilizers to use in your garden. Not only does it provide long lasting nutrients to your plants, but it also improves soil structure and feeds the underground soil ecosystem.
Composting is a reaction between nitrogen, carbon, micro- organisms, macro-organisms, water and air. Mixed together in proper proportions these elements create heat and form a very stable long-lasting fertilizer. We recommend a compost mix of one parts Greens with thirty parts Browns.
Layer your greens and browns into a pile at least 3’ x 3’ turn over the pile once or twice and in 8 weeks you’ll have garden ready compost.
Build healthy soil and you will grow healthy plants.
There is no “right” way to plant or maintain a garden. There are many different styles and techniques for growing plants. One of the fun parts of gardening is trying new things and watching how plants respond.
