Compost (often called ‘humus’) is rich in nutrients and full of life. When used in your garden and on your plants, it feeds the ecosystem of the soil and slowly releases nutrients that plants can absorb.
Using compost is the foundation of maintaining healthy soil for stimulating all plant growth and creating a beautiful garden. And even if you don’t have a garden, you can still compost. The finished product is valuable for houseplants, or your friends, neighbours, or local allotment gardeners might be happy to take it from you if you don’t want it yourself.
