Composting in your garden
When making your own compost it can be quite difficult to know what materials to add to your bin/pile, what needs to be avoided and the perfect ratio of carbon-rich materials (browns, e.g. dried leaves, straw and wood chips) and nitrogen-rich materials (greens, e.g. grass clippings and kitchen food). We’ve compiled together a guide on common compost materials to use to make your compost a success.
