Tumbler Composting

3A balanced diet

Your compost needs a 50/50 balance of fresh, green scraps (nitrogen rich) and dry, brown scraps (carbon rich). For every bucket of green scraps, you'll need to add one bucket of brown scraps.


  • Diversity is the key. Too much of one thing can cause an imbalance in your compost.
  • Chop green scraps and brown scraps in to pieces smaller than a golf ball. The smaller the pieces the faster they will break down

Did you know?

Weeds can be composted but you probably don't want their seeds to grow in your garden.

Kill the seeds before you compost them by soaking the weeds in a tub of water for a month or two. They'll break into a rich sludge that you can use in your compost as a substitute for food scraps.
