Composting is now made very easy with ready made composting bins, wired meshes and compost tumblers and dividing special areas for preparing compost. In one of the societies who are proud growers of vegetables and fruits, container gardening on terrace, boast of making their own compost. Then there are many who have land dig up a pit and make their own compost.
What is compost? it is a fertilizer, your plant food made from left overs from your home. healthy bacteria work in the garbage and make it nourishing.
How does compost benefit? its like an healthy tasty ice cream for plants, tonic and mood uplifter, they love the nutrients and vitamins and texture, when added in proper timings give out healthy blooms.
What I have been doing since years is adding left overs recycling from garden and many home ingredients that go to waste. The only risk is that it attracts rats, ants, and hungry birds!But the strong sunlight does great wonders to this compost. Also add some paper, burn some paper and add ashes, great tip!
But plants really love the feeds and especially roses give out large sized blooms.
