Ingredients

Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house.
If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.
  • Plus one item from the nitrogen list below
  • And two items from the carbon list below
  • What to do

  • 1.  Alternate layers between the three groups to create a balance of carbon and nitrogen, without adding too much of either.

  • 2. After 3 weeks of layering in spring and summer, or 4–5 weeks in winter, turn the pile over into a second bay. The top becomes the bottom, the bottom is now the top.

  • 3. After 2–3 more weeks turn the pile over again into a third bay and cover with a piece of old carpet (this is known as ‘putting it in the oven’).
