What to do in the Garden in March – Start Composting


Why Compost?

Compost is the perfect free organic food for your garden. It’s the ultimate in recycling that you can do in your own home & garden. It also links your own food chain from your home to your land – putting back nutrients directly to the soil.  Compost is packed with nutrients any garden will love, and it helps improve soil condition, maintain moisture levels, and keep your soil’s PH balance in check while helping to suppress plant disease.

It will have everything your plants need including nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium and it will help buffer soils that are very acidic or alkaline. Did you know around 40% of the average household’s bin contents are suitable for composting at home? So it helps cut down on landfill, which is major source of pollution, too.
