Muck and Compost
There is now a large pile of horse manure at the crossroads – follow the path down from the greenhouse.
Please use only as much as you need.
We also have a HUGE amount of garden compost available which is ready for use. – You may wish to sieve this, sieves are available in the blue shed.
The compost ready for use is located in three bays:
- Next to the horse manure and newer compost bay at the crossroads.
- Next to the red shed.
- At the top of our site, between the leaves and the newer compost bay.
(Newer compost bays are those still being added to – the material in these is not yet ready to be used as it has yet to rot down) .
A reminder please, when adding garden waste to the newer compost bays, please shake off as much soil as possible and also cut down into bits / break up any larger brown material – basically we don’t want large items such as sweetcorn and brussel sprouts stalks going in whole – they would take forever to break down.Thankyou
PS. If you’re unsure, ask other growers, rather than just guessing what to use – if you use compost which is unready, you may introduce weeds to your plot.
