What is composting?
Composting is an inexpensive, natural process, transforming kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient rich food for the garden.
As well as green garden waste, residents can compost fruit and vegetable peelings, egg shells, tea bags, cardboard and shredded paper.
After nine to twelve months, you’ll have your very own compost, ready to put back on your garden to help nourish new plants.
You can find more information about composting on the RHS website.

Food waste digester
For the more dedicated, the Green Johanna food waste digester is the garden compost bin with a difference.
As well as recycling garden waste, the Green Johanna recycles cooked food, bones, meat and fish into natural organic compost.
Green Johannas look similar to a normal compost bin but have more insulation and more ventilation to create the best environment to deal with food waste.
Simply find a shady, sheltered spot and add garden waste and food waste to make the best compost for your garden.
