Here’s a bargain offer to help your garden grow
Somerset Waste Partnership has teamed up with getcomposting.com to provide an exclusive offer of 1,000 home compost bins for as little as £10.
Home composting cuts CO2 emissions and turns all garden waste and suitable kitchen waste into a free supply of compost to keep your garden blooming year after year.
Two sizes of compost “converters” are included: the 220 Litre is only £10, the larger 330L is just £12.50.
Save even more with the buy-one-get-one-half-price deal for two of the same size. Delivery is £9.99 per order, so why not order two and share delivery with a friend, neighbour or relative?
Voted best “budget buy” in Gardeners’ World Magazine, the bins are made from recycled plastic, require no assembly, and are guaranteed for seven years. Optional base plate available.
For the best home composter results, find a partly sunny site as the sun’s warmth will speed up decomposition. Use a mix of ingredients, with roughly equal amounts of “green” material (grass cuttings, fruit and veg scraps etc) and “brown” materials (woody prunings, autumn leaves etc).
Compost’s worms and “mini-beasts” must breathe – create air pockets with scrunched up kitchen roll tubes or card egg boxes, and aerate the contents by turning it with a garden fork.
Buy your bins at getcomposting.com; and find offer details and helpful composting tips on our website here.
