The perfect compost recipe

Feed your garden well this year with this simple compost recipe!

Compost is often known as “black gold,” “garden gold, or “the organic gardener’s best friend” – and with good reason. Compost is the absolute best food you can give to your garden plants! Unlike purchased fertilizers which usually contain only one or two essential nutrients, homemade compost contains a full spectrum of nutrients, as well as important soil microbes and bacteria that help feed your plants and improve your soil over time.

While you can make compost simply by throwing all of your kitchen and garden waste into a heap and leaving it for a couple of years, if you want faster and better results, having the right recipe can really help. The video below explains how to create the perfect compost recipe for your garden, including what materials to include, which ones to avoid, and how to fix common composting problems.

About the author 

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
