Compost–Good for Soil, Plants and Soil Biology

Organic Compost is an Essential Material for your Garden

Compost enriches the soil by adding nutrients and organic matter to the soil and feeds the soil biology. Compost improves water holding capacity, essential for sandy soils. Compost helps loosen heavy soils thus increasing space for oxygen and water also allows roots to spread easier.

You can make your own compost with the use of compost bins or compost piles, or purchase bagged finished compost, ready for the garden and your vegetables, herbs, trees and most landscape plants.

Organic compost is an essential organic material to add to the soil for most soil types.

Types of Organic Compost

Gardeners have many options when it comes to choosing an organic compost for their garden. One common type is manure, which can be sourced from farm animals such as cows, horses, and chickens. Manure is a rich source of nutrients and can help to improve the structure of the soil.

Another popular option is green waste compost, which is made from grass clippings, leaves, and other plant matter. Green waste compost can be a great way to recycle yard waste and to add valuable nutrients to the soil.

Food waste compost is another option for gardeners looking for an organic option. Food waste compost can be made from kitchen scraps such as fruit and vegetable peels, coffee grounds, and eggshells.

Gardeners have many options to consider including our bagged organic compost.  See our full collection of growing and fertilizer supplies for more alternatives.
