Compost can take a long time to create from your home organic waste. If you do not add much to your compost pile or bin then you can be in for a long wait of many months. However, there are some companies that have made 'compost accelerators' which speed this process up. We explore some below.
Envii Compost Accelerator
This has been the first accelerator I have used, it's quick, easy to use and comes quickly from amazon in small packaging so you don't have to wait around for it to be delivered or have it delivered to a neighbour if you are not in. Perfect.
Speeds Up Composting Process
Regular compost heaps can take up to 12 months to produce any usable compost. Compost Accelerator speeds up the process by naturally increasing the compost heap to give you quality compost in as little as 3 weeks.
Improves Quality Of Compost
By keeping the compost heap at a higher temperature Compost Accelerator helps to break down waste in to smaller pieces, whilst retaining all of the nutrients needed to help plants grow.
We only use natural ingredients in Compost Accelerator which makes it 100% organic. This can give you the reassurance that it will help produce healthy, organic compost that can contribute to the growth of organic plants.
Sterilises Compost From Pathogens
Compost Accelerator can help increase the temperature of compost piles above 80°C to ensure that any harmful pathogens or diseases are killed off and your compost is sterilised.
Garotta Compost Maker
Garotta is made from materials selected to help improve the structure of home-produced garden compost, maintain a neutral pH and speed up the process of decomposition. It provides food to promote bacterial growth which in turn encourages the temperature in the compost heap to rise, kill off weed seeds and hasten the conversion of garden and kitchen waste into a rich compost ideal for enriching garden soil.
Garotta is harmless to children, pets and wildlife and its fast acting nature can help you produce your very own natural garden compost.
Tips on Use
- Only add fresh material such as lawn clippings, garden weeds and raw kitchen vegetable peelings
- Never add cooked food of any kind as this can attract vermin. Shred or cut waste into smaller pieces where possible, especially woody stems.
- Cover the heap to retain moisture
- Turn heap regularly in order to allow in air which is needed for the composting process and for faster results. When ready, spread the compost on your garden as a mulch or soil improver, leaving any material not fully composted as the base for a new heap
Vitax Compost Maker
