Using compost

  • To decide when the compost in your compost heap is ready, look for:
    • a dark coloured soil
    • which crumbles easily
    • and you can’t pick out any of the original ingredients
    • a sweet, earthy smell.
  • If it’s stringy or lumpy, leave it for longer.

Next – Spread the compost in a thick layer.
The spread should be 10cm thick.
